Ok, I think I might be a Yankees fan now. A couple of weeks ago I went to my second game for the season and it was A-mazing. Last time, it was opening week and it was freezing and we left half way through. This time, it was perfect and the game was so exciting, we stayed for the whole thing! Three hours + of baseball. And we liked it. It might have helped that I was with Kelly and that we made a few stops to get food, such as this Carl’s Philly Cheesesteak above. Um, I’ve never had a Philly’s Cheesesteak until I went to Yankees stadium. And it was good. KP even got hers with cheez whiz. Oh yes she did.

So Yankees versus the Boston Red Sox. Holy cow. We were winning major first inning and then the Sox came back and were beating us all until the ninth inning where the Yankees exploded in home runs. We were off our SEATS cheering for baseball. Completely absurd. So we won with a walk-off (fancy term I learned from Miss Detroit Tigers herself) and then the stadium blasted Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” Could not have been more fitting. Everyone was going nuts and the song just topped it off. Such little New Yorkers we are. And they had to have played the song at least twenty times because it was still going by the time we went through the crazy madness and made it outside. It’s up to you, New York, New York!

P and I went to the Yankees versus the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game last night. It was my first time in the new stadium and it was pretty nice!

Here’s $50 of food from Nathan’s.

Here’s the view from $20 seats:

And here’s some happy campers:

The Yankees killed it, of course. I mean how could they not after stealing Curtis Granderson from the Detroit Tigers? I was going to buy a Granderson t-shirt, too, but they were sold out! And next time, I’m getting ice cream from Carvel. :)

Oh, and by the way, they gave out free hats last night to basically the entire stadium except for us. We even asked for them and they wouldn’t give some to us. We thought maybe they were just for fancy seats, but when we got to our seats we realized everyone had them. We were gypped.

Hmm… maybe I’ll have to get a BoSox hat instead. :)
