...from the cheap seats (and lets face it-nothin' cheap about a day at the ballpark anymore). Incase you have been living under a rock or really don't give a pop fly about baseball THIS is THE LAST year the Yankees are playing at the original Yankee Stadium (opened in 1923)! The new Yankee Stadium is right across the street waiting to over shadow all the history made by Mickey, Babe, Joe Di, Etc! I wonder why we can't just let the greatest ballparks of all time be? Does Budweiser really need to sell more seats + more beer at each home game (the stadium holds 57,545)? Anyway people, this is part of American history and it's going fast so warm up your Visa, MC or Am Ex with an inflated, over-face-value-ticket (unless you were like me and bought seats back in March) and experience it for yourself. Bring along tons of cash for the $9.00 beers and $5.00 dogs (and some Zantac if your heartburn prone). Purchase yourself some NY garb so you look the part and enjoy an afternoon with the "home town nine" as it was meant to be: OUTDOORS! Grab the 4 train uptown (were you paying attention) and head to the Bronx and put your finger on the pulse of the strong, impressive and wildly over payed New York Yankees (opps they lost to the Reds 2-4). You gotta do it-just so you can say you did, don't ya, huh? Anywayz, it was the BIG surprise (before he guessed it-long story) I had been planning for a million years for my hubby's 32nd birthday (honey if your reading: better remember to award me the Best Wife Ever Award). Totally fun, totally cool, just go do it!
PS Today was a toss up for my hoakey, have witted attempt to coordinate music. Is the better ball song Cheap Seats by Alabama or Put Me in Coach by John Fogerty? Cast your vote for MVP on my poll!
