I love going to baseball games. A summer isn't quite complete without enjoying an $8 beer at a ball game. Goodness. Why are things so expensive at baseball games? I'm surprised they don't charge entry fees to the restrooms.
Anyway. I really do like going, but I think it's way easier to understand what's going on when it's on tv. When I'm sitting in the stadium there is too much to marvel over besides just the game. My friend Rose and I were particularly intrigued by the airplanes flying over the field ever other minute. LaGuardia airport is just a few miles from CitiField, so the planes fly super low over the stadium. There are also pretty lights shining all over the place.
I knew going into the game that I wanted to have french fries and a chocolate shake from Shake Shack for dinner. If you go to Shake Shack in Manhattan you'll have to wait on a long line, but in CitiField I marched right up to the counter and had my "meal" in less than 2 minutes. And it was awesome. Their shakes are basically slightly melted custard. So good. The french fries were pretty outstanding as well.
This is Rose, Niki the-birthday-girl-whose-birthday-was-actually-a-month-ago-but-really-i-think-a-month-celebrating-this-girl-is-totally-appropriate and I wearing our complimentary Mets hats that I'm convinced were given to us so we wouldn't get knocked out by a fly ball or a free t-shirt being launched in our direction. Good thing we all look so awesome in them.
Matt was too cool for his free hat. I wish I was as cool as Matt. He did wear his fancy blue necklace and glowstick bracelet though. So stylish. Actually, since we are both Yankee fans it's probably some sort of sin for me to be wearing that hat. Opps.
If you happened to be watching the Mets vs. Braves game last night you might have seen me on tv! Our seats were in an area that the cameras kept picking up when filming the pitcher. See the little group in the top right of the picture above? Blue shirt, red shirt, orange shirt, white shirt, yellow shirt? That's us. I'm in the white taking a picture of the stadium as it takes a picture of me!
