It always has been a favorite place to sit for me, whether or not I have what one considers a good or bad seat.
I've been stuck super sky-high in the upper decks at old Memorial Stadium and Camden Yards in Baltimore as well as at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, where I still can't believe I missed Carmen Electra signing the national anthem, but that's the way the ball bounces sometimes.
Of course, some people really enjoy watching a game from the outfield. My favorite spot is still the front row in right-center at Camden Yards beside the scoreboard.
Patriot Brad Brubaker was on his game nearly the entire night and Ripley's Alex Karst tossed four innings of great ball. However, the hosts won 4-2 in a game which lasted about 97 minutes.
Tuesday evening in the sports department we were discussing the newly released 2012 NFL schedules. Needless to say, I didn't correctly guess, with multiple opportunities, who had the third toughest upcoming schedule.
It's hard to believe, but based on won-loss records from 2011 of course, the Browns have the third most challenging slate of games behind the Super Bowl winning New York Giants and the now Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos.
Something I found rather peculiar, to say the least, happens to be Green Bay and New England have the supposed easiest schedules.
Currently, head coach Rob Graham's Fighting Scots of Ohio Valley University are in sixth place.
However, Glenville State has suffered through a rough April and are on the outside looking in as the Pioneers of first-year boss Mandy Sansbury are in ninth.
Defending champion W.Va. Wesleyan is currently the No. 1 seed, but the Bobcats have been bitten three times this spring by conference opponents, falling 5-1 to Shepherd, 4-2 to Ohio Valley and also 3-2 to W.Va. State.
