Road Trip: Seattle

August 13, 2017

As I often mention on my site, I love when the Mets hit the road to an American League city they don’t often travel to. Luckily for me, I was able to make a trip to Seattle work for the Friday game against the Mariners. Nik and I planned the trip on our own, marking […]

Road Trip: Detroit

August 9, 2016

If there’s one nice thing about interleague play, it’s that the Mets will, more than likely, visit AL stadiums each season. I like this because it has allowed me to see the Mets play at US Cellular Field against the White Sox and just this past weekend, play in Detroit. I’m not actively trying to visit each […]

Road Trip: Mets Spring Training 2016

March 15, 2016

For the second year in a row, Nik and I headed to Port St. Lucie for Mets Spring Training. (Read about last year’s trip here.) This year was a lot different for us. We went to two games instead of one and both were pretty much sold out. March 9 vs. Yankees When I called […]

Crazy Sports Weekend: Part 1

November 10, 2015

Several months ago, long before the Mets playoff run began, Nik and I had plans for a weekend in Toronto, Canada. He was going to be there for work and I’d fly up after and we’d stay the weekend to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame and see the Penguins/Maple Leafs game. Then the Mets playoffs […]

Road Trip: Mets Spring Training 2015

April 10, 2015

I can finally knock seeing the Mets in Port St. Lucie off my wish list as Nik and I made a trip to Spring Training last week. It was great to have live baseball in front of me. Literally. The seats we had were front row by the Mets bullpen so I was mere feet […]

Road Trip: Las Vegas

June 4, 2014

I love seeing baseball games on the road. I have seen the Mets in Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Washington DC and San Francisco. I saw the Binghamton Mets in Portland and even saw a Cubs-Rockies game when I was there for a wedding. Needless to say, when I knew I would be in Las Vegas for […]

Road Trip: Minneapolis

April 16, 2013

I’ve written before about how I love schedule-release day because it allows me to plan potential road trips. I said it this past September, when I saw the Mets would be visiting the Twins in 2013 over my birthday weekend in April, that I would want to go. So this is the first road trip […]

Dickey Gets Win No. 19

September 26, 2012

I try to make one game a year at Citi Field, and this year’s happened to be at the end of the season when very little was on the line other than seeing R.A. Dickey pitch for win No. 19. When I planned to attend this game during our trip to New York with Nik, […]

Schedule Release Day is the Best Day

September 12, 2012

Whether it’s baseball, hockey or football, I always get excited when a season schedule is announced, especially since I don’t live in the city of my main team. I like to circle when NHL teams from the East come to Chicago. In baseball, I have wild dreams of making a bunch of road trips to […]
