I've been obsessively following Darren Viola on Twitter for the last week watching the ballots get posted. I was worried it was going to be close, but I agree with you. He's a lock.
Time to start planning the trip!
My dad and I have been talking about it since he retired. I've also wanted to go to Fenway most of my life, so we might fly into Boston, rent a car and drive to Cooperstown, then drive back to Boston and catch a Red Sox game before flying back. (unfortunately the Red Sox only come back home after the inductions)
EDIT: Or we might drive to Cooperstown, jaunt over to Boston for a day or two and Fenway, then drive back and hit Cleveland (we've never been to the Jake) on the way back.
plus Fenway and HOF weekend
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
