On Monday, Casey Johnson of Washougal and Michael Walsh of Vancouver were in Pittsburgh taking a tour of PNC Park before watching the Pirates play baseball.
“PNC Park is pretty much where this whole thing started. We really wanted to get to this ballpark,” Walsh said. “When we got our first look at the Major League Baseball schedule, it was very favorable for us. We are able to get to 12 games in 12 different ballparks in three weeks.”
On Sunday, they saw Rory McIlroy capture the U.S. Open golf championship in Bethesda, Md.
“The number-one thing I’ve seen has to be the U.S. Open,” Johnson said. “I’m a golfer, and I have watched these guys play on television my whole life. To actually be there, and take in the atmosphere of a U.S. Open, is something I’m never going to forget.”
