Guess who got their very own Yankee apparel at their very first Yankee game? (No...I'm not bitter...I've just wanted a Yankee sweatshirt just like this for 10+ years but have never gotten one)
Guess who got to see their VERY FAVORITE pitcher (Andy Pettite) in action?
Guess who ate their way through the game?
Guess who was very sticky from kids sitting on her lap the whole game?
Friday night, Shane & I took Zoe & Ty to their first Major League Baseball Game. It was also their first trip to Yankee Stadium. They were very excited and had been talking about the game all week. The weather postponed the game, but didn't stop it! It actually turned out to be a nice night for a game. Just as predicted, Ty sat and watched the game intently, while Zoe lasted a half inning and then squirmed until we left after the 5th (Yanks down 3-0). What I hadn't considered when choosing the game was that Z & T would have just wrapped up 2 full weeks of camp and would therefore, be exhausted. Neither of the kids lasted the whole way home (Ty didn't even make it to the George Washington Bridge.)
Best Ty quotes of the night (Zoe was too busy squirming and drawing to be quotable):
- When Shane asked Ty if he thought Yankee Stadium would be bigger or smaller than "this", Ty responded, "DEFINITELY smaller."
- Sometime after "last call", a not-so-sober man stood up a few rows ahead of us and screamed at the top of his lungs, "Let's go Andy!" To which Ty responded, "Now THAT...is a Yankee fan!"
- After the first few beer vendors came by, Ty said to Shane, "Dad, why's he saying, 'Growing a beard here'?" (That's Shane's favorite saying when Ty's taking a long time: I'm growing a beard over here!)
