Southpaw’s Valentine Delivery

February 12, 2016

If you know me or follow this website, you know that the White Sox are my Chicago baseball team of choice after moving here in 2007. U.S. Cellular Field is nicer and more comfortable stadium than Wrigley. The food and beer options are better too. So over the years, Nik and I have met their […]


A Few Words on Mike Piazza and the Hall of Fame

January 7, 2016

It’s about time! Seriously, it’s taken probably a year too long for Mike Piazza to get voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. We all have our ideas why it took so long, but I’m not wanting to write about it. Other sites have that covered. I don’t remember how I felt when the Mets […]


My Water Taxi Ride with Mike Piazza to the World Series

November 3, 2015

Having tickets to see the Mets play in the World Series is an exciting event on its own. Taking a Delta/Mets branded taxi with Mike Piazza and Jim Breuer to the game makes it even more exciting. Piazza was my favorite Mets player for the longest time and I still absolutely love him. On Thursday, […]


Playoff Game Watches!

October 1, 2015

It’s finally time that the Mets are back in the playoffs! The pitching we have and the trade deadline additions have made it an exciting second half of the season. That said, there will be some game watches at a NY friendly place:¬†Racine Plumbing located at¬†2642 N Lincoln Avenue. NLDS game 1 vs. the Dodgers […]


Annual Game at Citi Field

June 17, 2013

I try to make one Mets game a season at Citi Field. I got there last fall to see R.A. Dickey get win No. 19 and was back this past Sunday, June 9, to catch a game against the Marlins. After exploring some coupon deals, I settled on a pair of tickets in section 312 […]


Mets 2011 Opening Day Meetup

March 26, 2011

Let’s get the season started with a game watch meetup at Finley Dunne’s! (Located half a block from the Paulina Brown Line stop.) The game is Friday April 1st against the Marlins and first pitch is set for 6:10 CT. Both the Sox and Cubs have day games so our only “TV conflict” will be […]


Mets/Cubs Pre-game Meetups

August 29, 2010

On September 3rd, the Mets arrive to open a 3-game series with the Cubs. Just like last year, I plan to head to Merkle’s before the Friday and Sunday games for pre-game meetups. I believe Ted Berg and Matt Cerrone of will be organizing something for Saturday. It should be a great weekend! I […]


The Blackhawks, The Mets and Their Finances

July 31, 2010

On Friday, the Chicago Tribune published a very fascinating article about the Chicago Blackhawks. Despite breaking all sorts of attendance records for selling out every home game, and winning the Stanley Cup this past season, they are more in the red than black when it comes to their finances. The Blackhawks have a very storied […]


Finally, Some Bragging Rights!

April 23, 2010

Last night the Mets won their first series of the season. Of course, we would have loved to seen them win a series earlier than this, but I’ll take it. Why? Because it was against the Cubs and for once I have bragging rights with all my Cubs friends here. I’m not going to do […]


What do you do with your tickets?

April 8, 2010

It’s a slow day for this Chicago Mets fan, so I asked on Twitter what people do with tickets that they save from events they have gone to. Not surprising, most people store them in shoeboxes. TheHappyRecap even sent along this picture of where he keeps his. KDoster said she started a photo album type […]
