    That'd be awesome.  I've told the wife that if we ever go out west for anything, plan on spending at least a week letting me photograph.  Ideally, I'd like to do a 2-3 week trip out that way.  Fly into Vegas (since I've never been), spend a couple of days there to take in the sights and say that I've "experienced" it and then head out to the different places I'd like to photograph.  I'd love to rent a car and head out from Vegas after a couple of days, stop at the Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon, GC and the North Rim, Page, AZ for Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, Canyonlands NP, Arches NP, and then probably fly out of Salt Lake City.

    Yes sir, it would.  We cam "this close" to doing it in March of 2015, but opted for a week in Cancun instead.  Obviously, the American SW is on my list, but I'm hoping to do Jackson Hole and the Tetons this upcoming June.

    I'm hoping to do St. Lucia next time we head to the Caribbean, but would love to go back to Dominica, also.

    Braves Pitching Coach Roger McDowell Is Still Receiving 'Seinfeld' Royalties
    Wednesday, February 25, 2015 3:16 pm

    It pays to have been on Seinfeld. Just ask Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell.

    McDowell, who worked as a relief man for 12 MLB seasons, made a quick cameo in one of the more memorable episodes of the popular comedy. Even though he was on-screen for fewer than 10 seconds, McDowell still gets some money every time his episode airs.

    McDowell and former teammate Keith Hernandez play themselves in an episode called "The Boyfriend," in which the characters Kramer and Newman recall how someone spat on them after a game at Shea Stadium. At first the guys accuse Hernandez, but the first baseman says it was actually McDowell who did the spitting.

    With the help of some Zapruder film, Hernandez explains how McDowell was actually the "second spitter." Here's the clip:




    As you can see, McDowell doesn't have any lines and is hardly on camera. So making any money from this gig is a win. And if McDowell still gets money for that small role, you may wonder how much the main actors receive. The answer? A lot.

    Perhaps more significant than the royalties is the fact that McDowell has become somewhat of a cult hero for fans of the show.

    McDowell, now 54, is still asked about his involvement in the plot and has yet to reveal the truth.

    He's a good bench option on a terrible team. A terrible platoon option on a non-contender. I'd much rather give those PAs to Terdoslavich or Cunningham. They proven all the can at AAA at this point, this is the time to see if they can hit major league pitching.
