Planes, Trains and Automobiles

 It felt like a classice 80’s movie, with John Candy and Steve Martin, on my trip to Yankee Stadium on Tuesday.  We drove to the airport in Buffalo, took a shuttle bus to our terminal, flew from Buffalo to JFK in New York, took a bus from the airport to Grand Central Station, took the number 4 subway train to Yankees Stadium and got a cab to take us to the airport.  I have never had to rely on so much public transportation in my life, it was all worth it though, as the Blue Jays came out victorious against Joba and the Yanks on Tuesday.  Too bad about the other two games, especially Thursday, jesh!!!  What a heartbreaker. I don’t want to get started on that.  Anyway, here are some pictures of me at the game.

We had some pretty good seats, with a good overview of the field.

 

With the Yogi plaque in Monument Park.  I think im about to say “de ja veux all over again”.  Also, im carrying bonoculars, I know that looks like a purse.  The steak I had in Manhatten was amazing from Sparks Steakhouse.  They also had a huge wine list and a number of pictures of celebrities that came to the restaurant (i.e. Joe Torre, George Bush). 

I also was able to capture a good picture of Alex Rodriguez as he entered the stadium.  I have no idea what he is holding in his hand, but he is inbetween the lady with the Petitte jersey and the girl with the back pack.  It almost looks like A Rod is posing for me.

    Just found out that Sparks Steakhouse was the site of the famous Paul Castellano murder by Mafia boss Jon Gotti.

    Can’t believe that I accientally picked a New York landmark restaurant to eat dinner.
