For the first time in more than 20 years, I went to a ball game at Shea Stadium, courtesy of Norm and Vicky, where were given three tickets to the game. We had great seats in the Mezzanine Box (section 2, box 504C, seats 4-6) right behind home plate and had a great view of the game. I kept score the whole game, and did a pretty good job at it (my totals matches those published online, so I was doing something right).
Norm and Vicky arrived shortly into the top of the 1st inning and we had a great time, eating, watching the game and commenting on various players names and fans with annoying-sounding voices.
The Mets were losing most of the game, tied it up in the late innings, and even managed to win with a walkoff sac-fly in the bottom of the 9th, so Vicky got to experience those rare Mets victories at home.
I had a really fun time and once again, I had Norm and Vicky to thank for it.
In an interesting post script, today was supposed to be the first of my Oriole’s games for my season tickets this year, but because I was in NY, I couldn’t go and gave the tickets to Kevin, who is a Red Sox fan and probably enjoyed the game more than I would have. And as it turned out, I got to see a ball game after all!)
