Pop Pop at Myrtle Beach


Yamato - Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar
Myrtle Beach, SC
I'm on vacation with my mom's side of the family in Myrtle Beach.  Mom, Uncle Kuuipo and Uncle Tony brought their campers down.  My Uncle Sumo flew in with Chantel from Utah, and my grandparents and other assorted cousins and family members made the trip with us or met us there.  We're staying at Pirateland.  It's an RV park that has nothing to do with pirates, but it has a private beach and a very awesome heated lazy river to float around in.

This photo was taken of me and my Pop Pop (my mother's dad) while we were waiting to be seated at Yamato's.  I've never had hibachi before this night.  The food was delicious, and they put on a very fun show.

Robin Visits The Sharks


Winning Legends scratch-off ticket
New Jersey Lottery (2004)
Phillies legend Robin Roberts is making an appearance at Campbell’s Field for tonight's game between the Camden Riversharks and the Pennsylvania Road Warriors.  Roberts will throw out the first pitch and sign autographs for fans as part of the promotion of a new New Jersey lottery scratch-off game called Winning Legends.  The ticket features Robin Roberts and fellow Phillies Hall Of Famers Steve Carlton and Mike Schmidt.

Robin Roberts won't be the only former Phillie to be in attendance at tonight's game.  Kevin Jordan, who played for the Phillies from 1995-2001 is the Riversharks' starting second baseman.


UPDATE: The Riversharks defeated the Road Warriors 8-3.  This photo of Roberts was published in the Courier Post.  On a side note, the Road Warriors are a pretty interesting story.  They're a team in the Atlantic League that doesn't have a home stadium and is only activated to play in seasons when the league has an odd number of teams.
