With Sujan, Lily, Lindsay, and Claire
For my schoolís auction, I decided it would be fun to donate an afternoon. The lucky winner would win a day at Shea with Sujan and me. The lucky winner Lindsay chose two other kids from my class and we were off. None of them really knew that much about baseball before the game and one of them (Lily) even thought she was a Yankees fan before the game. This is taken from Lilyís writing about the game.
5 Great Mets fans
On Sunday, Mr. Raphael and Sue-Jan Came to my house. Lindsay and Claire came too. We were all going to a Mets game together! Yes, I was a Yankee fan at that time but I didnít care. Because what could be better! Gong to a Metís game with your teacher, techerís feansay, and your two best friends! So when we got there, we had ďlodesĒ of food. We ate while we wached. At one break of an inning, we went to get suvanears. I got a Mr. Met bobble head.
I was liking this expeareance. Then, we went bach to our seats. There almost was a no hitter! It ended up to be a one hitter. Picher Tom Glavine. At another break of an inning on the score board, it said the Mets welcome Lily, Claire, Lindsay, and Dan! You think Iím lying, but Iím not! Iíll tell you why. It is because my dad has a friend named Tom. Tom has a friend that works on the score board. Tom knows me so Tom asked his friend if he could put our names up there. It was so cool.
I was Loving this expeareance! Then At the end of the game, we got to run on the baces. That was cool too! Then, we started to head home. When we got home, I thanked Mr. Raphael and Sue-Jan and they left. Then I shoed my parents My Mr. Met bobble head, that I adored, and then made it clear that I had become a mets fan. My dad agreed with me.
Then the next day at school I menchened for the 1001th time to Mr. Raphael that I had become a Ö. METS FAN!!! I Looooooved that Expeareance!!
Lily neglected to mention that Sujan finally got her chance to run around the Shea bases. She capitalized on the chance to get on the field using the kids as an excuse. Then she pushed her way around the mean woman who told her that running the bases was only for kids. What a bad example!
Sujan also still blames me for ruining Glavineís no-hit bid (which lasted for 8 1/3 innings) by talking about it during the game. But I had to explain it to the girls because they had not idea what was going on. When I was talking about it, Sujan walked away from us and covered her ears. It wasnít my fault!
The Mets excitedly reached .500!Posted by dan at May 23, 2004 07:05 PM
