Ryan and I went to our first Mets game last Monday night at Citi-Field.
I am not very good at following sports. I haven’t even watched a Clemson football game since I graduated. That statement is like blasphemy to some of fellow grads.
Anyway, I have decided to be a Mets fan. No particular reason. I do live in Queens which is where their field is located, also they are more of an underdog team than the Yankees and I like underdogs.
The only thing is I was also raised to love the Philadelphia Phillies and apparently they are big rivals for the Mets. But I figure I will just root for the Mets until they play the Phillies in which case I’ll be happy either way. That works, right?
Here are some photos from our Citi-Field adventure:
We left in the seventh inning. The game was running longer than we expected and Ryan had a long ride home. Anyway, I was pretty tired. The score was 6-8 with the Reds beating the Mets when we left and that is the score they ended with so we didn’t miss anything.
I did not get a hotdog while I was there. I am trying not to eat a lot of meat. Although they did have soy dogs but I just opted from some yummy crinkle fries:)
