Rotunda entrance

My friend from the Bay Area, Steve, came out for the Yankee series. He is a Yankees supporter. We always do a game or concert every year. This year we did both, seeing the Scorpions and a Yankees game last week and the Yankees-Mets series this weekend. All 3 games are sold out. There are too many Yankees fans in the stadium tonight. They are everywhere.

Sitting with the gang from SNY promos

The SNY roommate crew from TV promos were there with their "Couch" letting people take photos with them so I jumped in and got mine. Their commercials about SNY New York sports are funny. I couldn't resist having my picture taken with them.

Steve Matz

Steve Matz pitched well for the win. A native Long Island NY resident, he was pitching in his own backyard with many family members in attendance. The homer happy Mets gave Matz enough support for the win. He is now 4-0!

Mets Win!
