PirateFest starts Friday afternoon at 4:00 for the season-ticket holders, then opens to everyone on Saturday (12:00-7:00) and Sunday (12:00-5:00). One would think the Q+A sessions with Frank Coonelly, Neal Huntington and Clint Hurdle would be especially entertaining this year, but I doubt that will be the case. Usually what happens is that the angry fans (who aren't used to being in front of microphones) come up and issue meandering, half-informed rants disguised as questions, and then Coonelly and Huntington (who are used to public speaking) brush them off pretty easily.
Anyway, I'll be milling around doing interviews tonight, so maybe I'll see some of you there. Here's the full schedule.
