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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
