Ah, Aruba! Pump it up

Postcard From Spring Training

February 18, 2007|By PETER SCHMUCK

Deflating experience.

Sidney Ponson was nowhere to be seen in Aruba on Friday night, though it's important to point out that I'm referring to the popular nightspot on Fort Lauderdale beach and not the Caribbean island that brought you Sir Sidney and fellow former Orioles Eugene Kingsale, Calvin Maduro and Radhames Dykhoff.

It's a fun place. If you're waiting for a table, they give you a balloon on a string with a number written on it so they can find you in the crowd, which I thought was kind of cool until someone in our party suggested that the restaurant could save a balloon by writing the number on my giant head.

I thought that was rude.
