Mike Piazza #31 Retirement Ceremony

August 2, 2016

Gary Carter, Mookie Wilson, Mike Piazza, David Wright. Those are the names of some of my favorite Mets players. When Mike Piazza was finally honored by getting inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, I knew a trip to Cooperstown for the ceremony wouldn’t be possible. I held out hope the Mets would announce a […]

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 […]

Dodgers at Mets – NLDS Game 4

October 15, 2015

I was back at Citi Field for NLDS game 4. Unfortunately the results were not as good as the night before, but I’m glad to have gone. The atmosphere was again loud and exciting until the later innings when the Mets couldn’t muster up any offense. Steven Matz was on the mound and he cruised through his first […]

Harvey Day at Citi Field

April 24, 2015

I usually make at least one spring trip to NY and try to tie in a Mets game. When Nik and I planned this years spring trip a few months ago, we picked the April 19 game against the Marlins because it was the only day game they were playing during our trip. As the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Johan Santana Makes Mets History

June 2, 2012

I clearly started this blog for a reason when I moved from New York, to chronicle different experiences as a Mets fan living in Chicago. The Mets have been the one professional sports team I’ve been a fan of the longest. And last night made it so worth it. Never giving up. Never getting down […]

Dodgers vs. Mets – May 6, 2011

May 9, 2011

About a month ago I made plans to head to NY for a family weekend. I knew I’d have Friday night free and saw that Mets tickets were going for cheap. I kept an eye on things and finally bought a pair of tickets in section 111 for $62 each. That price included fees and […]
