Take That, CitiField

I went to the Mets v. Pirates last night with my buddy, Sushi Bar. (This is a bad fake name because he's Chinese and not Japanese. But since it would be funny if he were Japanese and since I can't think of a better fake name, I'll go with this one.) Anyway, Open Bar and Side Bar discovered the shirt, so they deserve a finders' fee, but I must say, the shirt went over very well. Many comments from many strangers. And apparently, yes, I am that fat now, though I did have three shirts on.



Best thing about CitiField is that I sat in "my seat" for one inning and watched the rest of the game from various points throughout the stadium. I found two or three spots that offer a really great view of the action and are not yet that crowded, including one on the Pepsi Porch, but a little out of the way. Also we walked around and found the old home run apple, which is stored out in right field behind the bullpens. Incidentally, you can see the visiting pitchers warming up and it's separated by only a fence. I say we all go to the Cubs game and yell at Aaron Heilman.

Was that shirt at a sporting goods store somewhere? Or was it purchased online?

Open Bar found it. I am giving him all the credit. Happy birthday a few months early. That one's from me. I will be getting mine from you this week.

Incidentally, Shea rhymes with gay. I'm just saying.
