An evening with the Mets
Gwen, Dana, Ben & I watched the New York Mets play against the Nationals at Shea Stadium in Flushing, Queens last night. What an experience! Gwen & I who are both baseball illiterates, had to ask Ben and Dana to explain some of the game rules. But the sheer sight of the field, the impressive lights that illuminated the stadium, the crazy fans cheering, the sight of hot dogs and other game food, the cool music and our ultra mad "neighbours" who cheered in Spanish and purposely supported the Nationals, made the outing worth the while. Of course, the night wind was harsh and we left halfway when the Mets was losing to the Nationals 5-1; our neighbours who probably knew about half of the spectators in Gate B seats went wild with joy!
