Take me out the ball game...

Ninety percent of this game is half mental. — Yogi Berra

What better way to experience New York baseball then a Saturday night during a subway series of the Mets vs Yankees??

Now with moving to NY I decided that I needed to support 1 of the teams - but which one to pick?  Think of the history that the New York Yankees have?  The names that everyone associates with baseball - Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra and today's leaders like Derek Jeter and A-Rod.  I mean really, who wouldn't want to pick a team like the Yankee's to cheer for?

Well - for those who know me...  I just couldn't do it.  Maybe it's the stubborn side of me but I like to root for the underdog!  Guess maybe it comes from all the years of rooting for the Brewers (ok maybe I only went to the games for tailgating or the 7th inning Sausage race or a beer barrel poker?)

So I wore my Met's hat proudly :) even though they lost Saturday (and again Sunday) to the Yankees.  But it was still a fabulous night for baseball!  We got the game just in time to miss the rain.

Welcome to Yankee Stadium

Here comes the rain!

Military Appreciation Night - the rain couldn't stop the paratroopers!
Go Army!

Even the Empire State building was supporting the Subway Series!
My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.  Hank Aaron
