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 […]

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 […]

The Mets/Cubs Debacle

June 10, 2014

I love the Mets. I look forward to schedule release day every year to see when they’ll come and play the Cubs. (Playing the White Sox in 2013 was just a bonus.) No matter how good or bad the team has been before coming to town, I always plan to go. In my seven years […]

Mets Split with Sox

July 2, 2013

I’m not a recap blog, so click here for a recap of the June 25 Zack Wheeler game against the White Sox and here for the June 26 Shaun Marcum game. That said, it was great to finally see the Mets play on the South Side. It’s the first time they’ve played in Chicago since […]

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 […]

Mets Take Two from Cubs

May 21, 2013

Few things beat an easy walk to a baseball stadium. It’s even better when I can take a short stroll to see my team play. So this past weekend I took in three Mets–Cubs games at Wrigley Field. The team won on Friday, lost on Saturday and won again on Sunday. Friday May 17, a […]

A Visiting Fan’s Guide to Wrigley Field

February 6, 2013

In what is a long overdue post, I wanted to share my visitor’s fan guide to Wrigley Field. I moved to Chicago in June of 2007 and saw my first Cubs game earlier in 2007 when I was in town apartment hunting. Since then, I’ve lived within a mile walk to the stadium and have […]

Bobblehead Cabinet

December 31, 2012

I’m not sure when I started collecting bobbleheads, but I imagine it was shortly after graduating college. I have so many of them that I had to pick and choose which ones would sit out on display at home. I have some shelves that they would sit on, but they’d get dusty. That’s when I […]

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 […]
