Take Me Out To The Ballgame

This Cinco de Mayo the Mets offered a promotional deal. Along with a slightly above average cost ticket you’d get free tacos, chips and salsa and margaritas. The local ballpark is always a good place to run into friends. Especially with the way the new modern ballparks have so many lounges, bars and eateries.  Going to the game was a pretty easy decision.

You have to take a subway to get to baseball games in New York. You have to take a subway to get anywhere really in New York.  They can be adventures in their own right. Sometimes they are like a petting zoo.

They can also showcase some of the most beautiful skylines the city has to offer.

Sometimes they take a long time to get to the destination  but subways are convenient.

My ride was interesting. There was a man preaching the whole way. Crazy stuff. “The blood of Jesus is royal. Not bird blood or animal blood. Only the blood of Jesus can take us in to the royal family”

Was he talking about Pippa? I’ll drink the blood of 100 Jesus’ get in her. With her. To get in with her.  Just as this guy was calming down a woman getting off the subway said to him “Amen to the word.” So helpful. I don’t know what in the name of Royal Jesus she was thinking but it fueled him for the rest of the ride. Happy Psycho de Mayo.

When I finally arrived at the stadium I ran into a problem. I went to the wrong stadium.

It was Cinco de Mayo at the ballpark. I expected a bunch of drunk lunatics everywhere.

And there wasn’t anybody around. So I knew I was in the wrong place. Then when I saw that tennis sign my heart sank. Fortunately the baseball stadium is walking distance away and I was over there pretty quickly.

They have bricks lining the walkway that go around the outside of the stadium. You can actually buy these bricks and have them engraved with your family name or a fun message.

Pretty awesome gift for your favorite hooplaHa writer. Who happens to have a birthday approaching.

I got my tickets then and ran into a guy wearing his baseball glove.

Can you wear a glove to a baseball game? Yes. You are physically allowed to wear a glove at a baseball game. Should you though? I think the rule is if you wouldn’t be comfortable sitting on one of those vibrating horses or cars outside of supermarkets then you shouldn’t wear a glove. You know the one you put a quarter in and are for children. If you can fit comfortably in one and don’t feel foolish at all then go for it. Maybe everybody judging you is just jealous of your childlike sense of wonder.

Once you get in there it’s all about food and sodas. If you have too much food you won’t have enough room for sodas so you have to keep that in mind as you are eating. The best sandwich I ever ate was at Yankee Stadium actually. Lobel’s steak sandwich. I had a picture of it but it looked so good I just ate it. Sorry. Cracker Jack is a safe way to go. It’s not filling and it’s a classic. They’ve been selling it since 1896! Old timey food for an old timey game. Just don’t get too excited about the toy. It’s usually some little piece of paper nonsense now. Cracker Joke.

Sometimes they have giveaways at baseball games too. You would think with a Cinco de Mayo promotion there wouldn’t be any giveaway at this game. There was though! And it was a bobble head.

Who’s laughing now Cracker Joke?

As I said earlier you probably shouldn’t wear a glove because it’s for children. However, rooting hard for your favorite team is something kids do but is perfectly acceptable for an adult at a game. Encouraged even! Have fun with it. The game I was at our team won and it was tremendously exciting. If I could leave you with one piece of advice its smile at the game. Enjoy it. Root for your favorite team. Let’s go Mets!
