I know how you feel. Though we did drive to Corpus Christi, which wasn't too bad. I just don't understand the airlines sometimes. I live in MD, when I flew to Baton Rouge, me and my partner flew from Baltimore to Laguarda to Baton Rouge.

Got one better than that, Vampyre. The airfare from Chicago Midway to Las Vegas NS was $320, I believe. But, since I am closer to Milwaukee, I found a flight there with 1 stop for $230. And, the 1 stop was at Midway, yeah the original flight I looked at.

Airline pricing is confusing.

So buy the trip with a stop, miss the first flight, and catch the second smile

I wouldn't mind Nationals being someplace in the Midwest. When it was in Knoxville in 2003, we drove. We had 6 teams that year cause it was close and people who never go went. The only way it will be back in the Midwest is for a city to go through the bid process. They need to have a large convention center from basically Jan 1 through Aug 1. Plus, there needs to be alleys around to run all of the side tourneys. There is a certain number of hotel rooms that need to be available. And, the #1 thing is $$$. I have thought about looking at the requirements and seeing if the convention center that is 5 minutes from my house is big enough. There are enough alleys around me and hotels. The very first tourney was held in Chicago. Be cool to have one in the Chicago burbs.

As I said, I am actually closer to Milwaukee than Midway Airport in Chicago.

Me too, but I think there is a better chance of the Orioles or Nationals winning the World Series than either city even thinking about making a bid.

Didn't Baltimore host one year many many many years ago?

If so it was well before my bowling career and possibly before I was born. I just don't see them trying now though.
