Mets at Cubs – 2017

September 17, 2017

The season had so much promise back in April. And then the usual injuries, and maybe some bad luck, bit the Mets. It’s been a long season, one that feels like it’s never going to end. Except for the Mets still had to visit Chicago for their yearly series at Wrigley. You never know how […]

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 […]

Mets/Cubs – Wrigley 2016

July 21, 2016

When the Mets last played at Wrigley Field, they swept the Cubs to win the NLCS and advanced to the World Series. Game four of that series is quite possibly one of the best sporting events I ever witnessed live and in person. More recently, the Cubs and Mets played a few weeks ago at Citi […]

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 […]

The Sports Room: Before and After

March 1, 2016

Several years ago I wrote about the sports room in the condo where Nik and I live. The room was already painted red and we decided to leave it that way because we lean towards darker furniture and picture frames. Since then I have collected more bobbleheads and autographed items such as pictures and pucks. […]

World Series Game 3: Mets 9, Royals 3

November 5, 2015

After arriving to Citi Field by Water Taxi, Nik and I made our way in the stadium by entering along the left field side. We bypassed the lower level food options and headed to the promenade for Nathan’s hot dog’s and fries. We were still hungry so we shared the Pat LaFrieda Steak Sandwich, which is still as […]

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, […]

Thoughts on the 2015 Mets Season

November 2, 2015

So many emotions the day after the Mets lost to the Royals in game 5 of the World Series. I’m disappointed, bummed, call it what you will. The Mets led each of the games they’d eventually lose. You just can’t do that in the World Series. Blame the pitching – starting and relief – if […]

Mets Sweep Cubs, Going to World Series!

October 22, 2015

Last night is a night that I will never forget. The Mets beat the Cubs 8-3 to sweep the NLCS to advance to the World Series. I know the Mets were in the World Series in 2000, but this is different. I’m a working adult now, as opposed to a senior in college, and have […]

Going to the NLCS!

October 16, 2015

It’s been quite a season and the Mets are riding on into the NLCS to play the Cubs! This Mets team is a completely different team than the one I saw at Wrigley in May and it’s just an amazin’ time to be a Mets fan. Your browser does not support iframes. I’m still a […]
