Day 2: Sightseeing

When getting off the team bus to explore the National Historic Seaport of Baltimore, Murray State assistant coach Carlai Moore instructed players to meet the bus on Light Street to leave by 1 p.m.

The bus only had to wait for three scragglers and left to go back to the team hotel by 1:05. Not bad.

An hour and a half was all we got in Baltimore, but it was still enough to walk around and take
plenty of photos. We tried to eat at The Cheesecake Factory and ESPN Zone, but since Baltimore was experiencing plenty of March Madness traffic, the waits were too long. So I bought souvenirs at ESPN Zone and dined delectably at Panera Bread (which Paducah should get, pronto).
Northeastern crab cakes were no where to be found in fast food form.

While walking on the pier, a gull also decided to splay on me. For those not familiar with bird terminology, "to splay" means a bird released its excrement, which landed on my camera and pant leg while flying above me. 

Check back later tonight after I attend the team press conference and open practice at the Comcast Center later this afternoon.
