Let's go Mets!!! What a wonderful day!!

Sunday, August 16, 2009

I realized as I shared my 3 things to be thankful for that this belongs here too (that by the way is a wonderful thread/exercise I encourage everyone to engage in).

They gave us access to the Acela Club, so since we will never spend that much on tickets (barring any unforseen good fortune) and never have that opportunity again, we went. The stadium is fantastic and so was the view, the ambiance, the food at the Acela Club. My favorites included the wonderful wonderful clams and the marvelous aged nutty tasting gouda (better than parmigian reggianno!), and the mozzarella tomato salad, and the crab cakes, and the white fish, for me any way!

On the way home we split up as the train back from Manhattan was extrememly crowded. I chatted with a nice lady from Indiana. As I suggested favorite outings to her, all sorts of happy memories came to mind. What a lovely way to put the icing on a an already wonderful adventure!

    Boy! what a great experience. I love Major League Baseball and am enjoying living in a state with a team (the Detroit Tigers!). Go Curtis Granderson and Brandon Inge. I've never been to a live game though. Yours sounded fabulous. I hope you have many more days like this!
