Unexpected Surprise

photo_052707_001.jpgI spent the last week in Nyack, NY for a Chi Alpha Northeast Regional Staff Conference. While I was excited to get some great information and spend time with friends, I was a little disappointed. I was only 20 minutes from Yankees Stadium and it looked like I wouldn’t be able to see a game. I got a pleasant surprise on Sunday afternoon.

We had the afternoon off and a group decided to go into the city and look around. We really didn’t have a destination and while we were discussing where we wanted to end up, we passed Yankee Stadium. As we observed a moment of silence, we read a billboard that said, “Angels today 1:05 pm.” My good friend Joel said, “Let’s go see a game.” I didn’t argue. We got the $20 cheap seats, only 1 row away from the top, but they weren’t that bad. We had the shade from the uppper deck roof, a great breeze, and we were watching the Yankees! The only thing that would have made the day perfect is if they pulled off a win, but those have been a little difficult for the Yankees to produce this year. At least they made things interesting. The stadium was rocking in the 9th inning when Jeter had a chance to win the game with a hit. After about 15 pitches he finally sent a ball into the outfield. Unfortunately, it ended up in the center fielder’s mitt. Even still, I could ask for a better afternoon. Thanks guys!

  1. Mike, I’m glad you got to see the game, and thanks for the phone call. Of course, there are those of us who are at least three days hard driving from seeing anything like that!

  2. Hey there Mike!
    Hope everyone is well! Haven’t heard from Jen in a while, so please tell her “hey” (that’s Georgian for “hello there good neighbor”) from me.
    Glad to hear you were able to see a game!! Go Yank’s!!
