I 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!
