Once you enter the bedroom in my house, you don’t see something. When you turn your back after you enter my bedroom, you see a flashback into sports history and the evolution of ticket stubs. You see, like Todd Cook, I have saved all my tickets from the games I have went to. I put them up on a bulletin board, which is why many of the tickets you see below have holes in them. Scroll down to the bottom of this entry to see the bulletin board. If I tried to show you all of my tickets and describe each game, it would take 5 years, so here are some different tickets from different years.
I got to Citi Field yesterday. It was on such short notice, that by the time I found out I was going to the game, it was 3:45 and I had almost no chance of BP. My friend Danny took me to todays game and we got there at around 6. I finally got my picture with the Shea Stadium Home Run Apple. Of course the H in home run was not in the picture.
After getting Cora. The weather took a rapid spike. It got cold and windy fast. So, Danny and I went to our seats 5 rows behind the Mets dugout. To make a long story short, I tried for 3rd out balls and tried to get Razor Shines, the Mets first base coach, to toss the first baseman’s warm up ball to us, but it never happened. During the game, it was so cold and windy that I needed gloves. The Mets won 8-2 behind Mike Pelfrey’s solid outing and 2 homers by each Jeff Francoeur and Rod Barajas. After the game, I stopped at the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.
I went to Mets Opening Day on Monday at Citi Field. I had a great time, so let us get right to it.
Before I say anything, I would like to apologize for not blogging pretty much all winter. It was baseball’s off season, and I guess I took an offseason also. The winter was long, and baseball is finally almost back. I wish JosÃ© Reyes’ injury was an April Fools joke, but it sadly is not. But since I had a long time away from the blog, my mail stack grew larger, and I will share that with you guys now.
