Order has finally been restored in the baseball world.
Actually, although I have never been a Mets fan, an older brother took me to my first game, and it was a Mets' game at Shea. We saw the Cubs play the Mets with Tommy Terrific on the mound. This was late July of, yes, 1969, and the Mets were already showing signs of something big. Seaver took a Perfect Game into the 9th (8 1/3) before giving up a clean single. It was truly exciting and still the best single game I have ever attended. Not that I get to attend many. Nice memories.
New York Yankees
Friday at 11 AM
Battery Park up Broadway to Chambers St. City Hall Plaza
Such a good game last night! So happy the yankees won!
The 2009 Yankees, though undeniably great and deserving of the title -- especially Matsui (whose 6 RBI bat goes to Cooperstown) -- the storybook plot line... winning it all... at home... in the first year of the new stadium, for me anyway (a BoSox fan), is a tad too cute and more than a little groan inducing.
That said, I saw a NY fan's sign from maybe game 1 or 2 that said "The House that Jeter Built" which I thought was rather nice. And last night's game appeared to have more than a few actual baseball fans in the crowd who were loudly razzing Pedro, unlike the anemic enthusiasm displayed during the first three games in the Bronx, in comparison to the fanatics filling the Phillies' park.
It's kind of funny how the hubris of Pedro lead in part to the downfall of the Phils who were probably blindsided by the ego-feeding circus surrounding the game 6 start. There's a reason he was "sitting at home not doing anything" a few months ago...
Anyway, my Yankee pity is over. The hate is back...
Woo-hoo! 27! The universe is back to normal now.
What a night! On way home from World Series, Yankee manager Joe Girardi pulls woman from auto wreck
No thank you...I'll watch it on tv
I went to the last one, and was almost mashed through a
storefront display window, as the hoards of fans
were pushing hard in every direction for a better look
- not fun!
Oh boy...I'm heading there tomorrow. I'm praying I come back in one piece!
Any advice on the best location?
Find a street lamp you can climb up on
The open area at Broadway & Park Row, Vesey, Ann.
The Giants parade was better controlled than the earlier Yankee parades, but that means the side streets to Broadway will be closed off.
