And now, back to our regularly scheduled blogging. I couldn't work it into Skee-Ball Week, but New York's Museum of Natural History is hosting "Baseball As America"through August 18, an exhibit featuring memorabilia and artifacts never seen outside of Cooperstown. It's a strange place for the exhibit, especially considering that Cooperstown is only a few hours north of Manhattan, but it's pretty darn good.

What is especially cool, though, is that the museum's food court will have a kind of companion exhibit: "Hot Dogs As America," with a selection of ten classic dogs direct from the regional suppliers. For the first time, I'll be able to try a storied Fenway Frank or Dodger Dog, as well a bunch of other tasty dogs. Mmmmm....hot dogs.

Speaking of the closeness of Cooperstown, my brother and I will be driving up there tomorrow morning to check out Ozzie Smith's induction. It should be a lot of fun, especially if the rumors are true and Ted Williams' head makes a rare appearance. See you on Monday.
