I’m trying to find my way into Yankee Stadium for at least one playoff game. Could even be tomorrow, but that’s unlikely. One of my favorite people in the world is finally visiting NYC. He’s a HUGE baseball fan, and he’s never been to Yankee Stadium, and he has a source who might be able to come through with a few tickets, and blah blah. I’ve heard this story a million times, and it always has the same ending: someone more important gets the tickets. Someday, I hope to be the important one, or better yet, to be the guy who decides who gets the tickets so I can give them to myself. Anyway, if this “source” doesn’t come through, I might just call a ticket broker.
Yes, it’s playoff baseball–woo hoo–but this IS Yankee Stadium after all. I’m not dying to pay $300 (or whatever it ends up being) “just to get in the ballpark” and then have to sit in the second-to-last row in the upper deck behind the left field foul pole.
I like Manny. I’m sorry that his team is about to get swept, but if there’s one good thing that comes out of it, it’s that the tickets to a potential Yankees-White Sox ALCS will be much cheaper.
On another note…
Did anyone see that fan at Angel Stadium TRY to interfere with Garret Anderson in Game 1 of the ALDS? It truly boggles my mind. Who are these idiot losers who get to sit in the front row? And why are they all so lame that they can’t catch (or in this case even make contact with) balls hit right to them?
