penultimate

Late on Friday night we were offered the opportunity to buy two tickets to Saturday afternoon's Yankees game. For those of you who don't follow baseball (and I barely do) this weekend marks the final games ever in Yankee Stadium. Tonight is the final game. Yesterday was the second to last game. And we were there.Clearly we forgot our Yankees gear.

Despite having strong New England roots, Christopher is an avid Yankees fan. Me? I'm a Phillies girl, but if they aren't around I'll root for the Yankees too. Yeah, that's me. I was probably about 3 or 4.

The whole thing was really fun. The weather was fantastic, and the crowd couldn't have been more passionate. The game itself was rather uneventful and relatively short (barely anyone got a hit and the only point was scored at the bottom of the 9th). Christopher was glowing amd I didn't knit at all because I was too busy raving about how much fun it was.Even the $5 hot dog was especially good.

There was something extra special about being at the last day game (and second-to-last ever game) at Yankee Stadium. I hope to remember this feeling for a long time.

Crazy! Graham (my boyfriend) was there as well! He was sitting right behind the guy who caught the home run ball.

PS: the new sweater looks great!
