My son's twelfth birthday seemed like a perfect reason and opportunity to take the kids to their first Yankee game. And, in a strange twist, the game was played at Citi Field, home of the Mets! So, there we were, in the belly of the beast!
Of course, New York won, but the Yankees lost. In spite of that unfortunate outcome, much fun was had. It was a nice cool night and, not that I would ever nitpick, but getting out of the Citi Field parking lot is a real bear.
What might have been the most disorienting thing about the night was having to root for Boston to beat Toronto. It wasn't even a full moon. Curses!
