For the first time ever I went to a subway series at Citifield. The reason I was able to go was my friend wasn’t able to use her tickets.
~~ Yankees 4 @ Mets 1 ~~
My feelings were mixed about this game, while I was excited to be going I was also sad my friend couldn’t go. Then that morning I woke up with pink eye. Argh! or Ugh. So I went to the Urgent Care for some medicine. I asked if I could go to the game anyway. He gave me a really funny look, like he couldn’t believe I would ask about a baseball game.
Friday was T-shirt give away night. My friend and I got there kind of late, what with the urgent care visit and having to go to the pharmacy (two actually) and having to do laundry. There were a lot of shirts left. If they hadn’t been orange I would have gotten one.
Tanaka gave up a home run in the first inning. There were no more runs until Tanaka’s second at bat when he got on base. It was an error on the Met’s fielders part so his batting average still sucks, but he came around to score. Then Gardner hits a 2-run home run, followed by Stanton. Color me happy.
Subway Series swag, My friend wanted a souvenier since she couldn’t go and didn’t make me pay for the tickets. I reminded her that they would all have Mets logo on them. Then they showed these mini player bats, like the one I have of Jeter, but they didn`t have Frazier. So I got these instead. Subway Series swag.
For a day that started out pretty bad, it ended up pretty good. Yankees win, Mets and Red Sox lose, which puts the Yankees back in first place. Then the F trained turned into the R train without warning. Fuck the MTA.
