It was sunny when I bought a $22 ticket (including fees) off StubHub yesterday afternoon, cloudy when my No. 7 train emerged from the underground tunnel in Queens, and raining by the time I reached Citi Field:
So, I turned around and went home. That’s how much I hate Citi Field. Without batting practice, it’s absolutely not worth being there. (Even WITH batting practice it still sucks.)
Maybe I’m just bitter because it has rained 20 of the last 23 days in New York City. Or because I tried to sell the ticket on craigslist and there were no takers. Or because I get cranky when I have to go a whole week without snagging baseballs. The Yankees will be at Citi Field this weekend, and despite the offers I have received for free tickets, I will not be in attendance. I don’t DO the Subway Series. I like watching it on TV, but not being there…HOWEVER…I’m planning to attend a couple Yankee games next week, weather permitting.
