As I have mentioned in some of my previous entries, I collect baseball cards.
First off, I would like to apologize for not writing frequently during the offseason. It was the offseason, and baseball was not in the front of my mind. But now, on to this game.
First off I would like to apologize, it is the off season, so I am taking most of the winter off. But about a month ago, I had a fortunate experience and I was able to meet Mets first baseman Ike Davis. It was on December 18, 2010.
After that, the last two players on the field, veterans Miguel Batista and Joel Peralta walked in, and both signed my baseball. I had to throw and catch the ball while holding the camera at the same time, which was difficult. These would be the final Nationals autographs on the day.
While in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown last week, one of the exhibits was a TV screen playing an old skit from a play called, “Who’s on First?” After watching it for the first time I was throughly confused and found it hilarious, even though I had no clue what it was. I’ll let you watch it now before I continue on. Here is, “Who’s on First?” by Abbott and Costello.
This past week, my family and I took a vacation, and one of the stops was in Cooperstown. After a long drive, we parked on main street. Then, after a short walk down the block, I was in front of this building.
First, I would like to apologize that this is the first entry I have written since June. I went away for the summer and got back just a few days ago. Since I got back, I attended the Mets game on August 24. They were hosting the Marlins, and I was looking forward to having a good day.
I went to Citi Field yesterday. My father bought tickets for the front row in right field from Mets.com for face value. Earlier in the day, at around 2:30 PM, the sky opened up and these were in my front yard:
There are two things that I want to deal with in this entry. First off is Armando Gallaraga’s recent “perfect game”. Right before the controversial play, my father took out his iPhone and started filming, he caught both of our reactions to the play live. I am laughing because I actually thought he was safe and that it was funny that he would lose it on the final play. Once I saw the replay, my opinion changed. I posted the video on YouTube within 10 minutes of the game’s conclusion. Here is said video:
I have this device, that was given to me as a gift a few years ago. It shows live inning by inning scores and up to date standings. This is perfect if you are not going to be home and can’t follow your team. After yesterdays Mets game, I went to check the standings, and I saw this:
