Fun game yesterday. It was kind of lopsided. Alex Rodriguez homered to dead center, so that was cool. Also, Legends Field in Tampa is a really great place to watch a game. It was right across the street from the Buccaneers' Raymond-James stadium. The Yankees were really great to watch. After the game my Dad and I headed one exit down to Ybor City to go to a historic, authentic Spanish restaurant named Columbia Restaurant. We both had Paella. Honestly, this might have been one of the best meals in terms of taste that I've ever had, and I highly recommend it to anyone in the Tampa area. We were headed back north and we saw the Seminole Hard Rock Casino directly off an exit on I-4. We decided to stop and play some live 1/2 NL because my Dad is quickly learning how to play poker and has never gotten the opportunity to play live. We played for about 3 hours and had a blast.

We stopped at a Comfort Inn and Suites in Lakeland. This is the spring training home of the Detroit Tigers, and today we'll watch them play the Houston Astros. Should be great.
