The Dark Side of Baseball Road Trips

From "Man recovering from broken neck suffered at Yankee Stadium" (AP/

A tourist who suffered a broken neck at Yankee Stadium when another fan fell on him is recovering from his injuries.

Paul Robinson, 53, of Kirkland, Wash., was sitting in the stadium's steep upper deck with his wife and 13-year-old son last Sunday when an unidentified fan standing above him took a violent tumble down several rows of seats....

[Robinson's] family was on an East Coast baseball pilgrimage at the time of the accident. They had planned to go next to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and then head to Boston for a game at Fenway Park.

Travel safe, Sax-C & Delino!

Only livers have been injured on our trip to date.

Delino and Sax are staggering to our next stop now, after a long night...
