I had an absolute blast in New York. The two games that we went to couldn't have been any better. Well, maybe the Tuesday game could have been a little less stressful. But besides that it was perfect. On Monday we sat next to 3 other O's fans and I have to say that I was surprised to see so much orange in our section. There was a whole group of O's fans towards the bottom of our section and others scattered throughout our section. We dominated pretty much all of Monday's game so the Yankee fans didn't really have much to cheer about. We didn't get harassed by any Yankee fans the whole time we were there, which surprised me. We just heard the occasional "Baltimore Sucks!" every so often. The highlight of the whole trip had to be when my boy Dr. Jones hit his first career grand slam. The ball landed about 4 sections away from where we were sitting and as soon as he hit it I started going nuts. You're never going to guess who I met in the airport.

Huge Night for the Doc, 3-6 HR 5 RBI. I think it's pretty ironic that he had such a big night when I was there. It's all because I was reppin his jersey. THAT'S MY SON!

THE NEW YANKEE STADIUM
Okay, now I know you've all been waiting to see who I met at the airport so here he his: MR. GARY THORNE ladies and gentleman. He was checking in right next to us and I talked to him for a good 5 minutes before he had to go. Oh I almost forgot, he skipped the whole line. Classic 3 Beer Gary, You gotta love him!
What a Trip!
One Last Note: I wrote my name in sharpie on the seat that I sat in.
