Mets vs. Cubs + The Cold = A Loss

May 27, 2011

Game 3 of the Mets/Cubs series was by the far the coldest. I even had to break out long underwear. TMI? Once again, Nik and I were supposed to be in the 400’s but we sat in some empty seats on the 200 level and had a great view of everything, even R.A. Dickey tripping […]


Mets Win Rain-Shortened Game

May 27, 2011

The second game of the Mets/Cubs series was only better than game one because the Mets won. The weather was colder, our seats were under cover (section 223ish), but then the rain came and the game was called in the bottom of the 7th giving the Mets a 7-4 win. Dillon Gee had a rough […]


Mets Lose Wrigley Opener

May 25, 2011

My day started off really well with employee appreciate week at work and an air hockey table temporarily brought in. From work I went and met up with some other Mets fans at Merkle’s before the game. The sun was still out, but I knew it was going to get cold. I just didn’t expect […]


The Mets are Coming to Town!

May 19, 2011

As I’ve done previously, I want to organize pre-game meetups. Where: Merkle’s on Clark Street. One of the owners is a Mets fan which I think is pretty cool. I emailed him asking about specials: $6 1/2 lb. burgers every game. Wednesday night: $10 pitchers; and shot specials for all people in Mets gear (pre-game […]


Cubs vs. Rockies at Coors Field

April 19, 2011

While out in Colorado for a wedding, Nik and I decided to catch a Rockies game with a few of our friends. The Rockies were playing the Cubs, and since we live in Chicago, we decided we’d root for the Cubs. Also, having Ryan Dempster on my fantasy baseball team helped me root for them. […]


2011 Baseball Schedules are Out!

September 15, 2010

There are many jokes to be made about how long this Mets season has been over. But I’ll leave those for other people to make. I want to look ahead to the games and series that I’m looking forward to most in 2011. In order of date: April 8 – The Mets home opener vs. […]


My Weekend at Wrigley Field for Mets/Cubs

September 6, 2010

No matter how good or bad the Mets might be playing, I always look forward to their games against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. It’s the one time of year that I don’t have to travel out of town to see them play. This year is a little different in that both teams are playing […]


That's a Wrap!

October 5, 2009

I wish I could be more creative with this title, but I got nothing. Kinda like the Mets when they got swept by the Nats! Anway, I’m not gonna dwell. The Mets ended the season at home on a winning note and that’s all we could have asked for…for the last two seasons! For me, […]


Looking ahead to 2010

September 15, 2009

It’s safe to say the Mets season has been over for awhile now, even though they still have games to play for another 3 weeks or so. Needless to say, there hasn’t been much excitement to talk about. Until today. The 2010 schedule was released and it caused a bit of chatter on Twitter. For […]


Mets vs. Cubs Game 1: in Pictures

August 29, 2009

I think we all know how the game went: tight game, we take a lead, bullpen comes in and blows it. At least the rain held off and I sat in the 200 level which made for an easy exit when the game ended. I expect Saturday and Sunday to be a tad better because […]
