It’s summer, so you know what that means. Baseball! Ok, so I’m not the biggest sports fan in the world, especially when it comes to baseball, but when in New York, you’ve got to see some New York sports.
The first week we were here, a group of us went to the Mets game, since they were playing the Padres, Zach’s favorite team. It was great because we got $10 tickets—gotta love student prices. It was also the first time I had ever had a Nathan’s hot dog, which I had just learned were apparently famous. I can see why—it was delicious. The actual game was pretty slow. There wasn’t much action and I think the score ended up being like 2-0 or something, but it was still a fun experience.
Then a couple weeks ago, I went to a Yankees game with some friends from Glamour. It was really fun! Unfortunately, we had to stand the whole game, but that wasn’t really a problem. I bought a Yankees hat, despite the criticism my Cardinals-loving friends offered.
When I was here in March, I got to see the Penguins play the Rangers at Madison Square Garden, but I always wanted to see a Yankees game. Now I can cross visits to MSG, Yankee Stadium and CitiField off my New York bucket list.
