It’s entirely my own fault that I’ve not been to the United States for five years. I’m not gonna go into too much detail, but I did overstay a visa, though it was due to some terrible advice from an immigration lawyer, and the next time I wanted to visit, I was denied a visa. Oh well. One has to accept one’s mistakes. Having said that, I miss being in the United States. I miss the people, the bars, the cities, the landscape (specifically in the Pacific Northwest), and I miss the baseball. Baseball in Mexico is fun, but it’s not the majors. One day, though, I will return. Don’t know when, but damn it, there are more ballparks I need to do pictures of.

(I should note that I went to the SkyDome quite a few times in 2010 and 2011, but nothing in the U.S. since this day in 2009. I don’t want y’all Canadians to feel left out, so here’s a picture of your SkyDome.)

SkyDome, July 31, 2011

As is normal with such things, click the images to make them grow in size.

Finally, it’s vaguely interesting to me that whenever I do any sort of ART about ballparks, Dodger Stadium is always the best one I do. Proof–proof I say!–that it’s the most beautiful baseball stadium in the world.
