    Listen here BUCKO! Yeah, that's my tough guy voice...... Just cause I'm not posting doesn't mean I'm not "watching....."

    Why not? Everyone else does!!!! :rotfl2:

    I have had about 8 DISmeets and every single one has been wonderful! The DISmeet with Ellen was a bit different. I had never met her, yet I agreed to stay with her at AKL last year! Yes, that was the FIRST time I had met her - hence the axe..... :rolleyes1 One can never be too careful these days.....

    Kids? What kids? Husbands? Whatchootalkinboutwillis????? RIP Gary Coleman.....

    What can I say? It's a gift. Some gals get um, a couple of things, some get talent, some get brains. I have the gift of mixing moms, poop and popes. :confused3

    Great pool. Just dangerous. That gal must have been doing 40-45 in the currents. Next time I'll wear my football helmet just to be safe.....

    FYI, those are a man and woman in those pics. The man was in the purple sporting his Beatles haircut. The woman was, well, judge for yourself what she was doing.

    "Goodies?" Is that what you kids are callin it these days??? :eek:

    I got your back girlfriend! Or is it your mouth?:confused3

    See above. WAsn't wearing my football helmet. Next time I'll take her out!

    So....sorry I've been MIA- hope everyone had a blast on Memorial Day weekend- I was busy, busy, busy- last night was my first night home in about a week! One of the things keeping me busy was our family's 1st visit to the NEW Yankee Stadium. We went to Tuesday night's game, and I wanted to post some pics because Cammie is a BIG Yankee fan! :thumbsup2

    It took us 50 minutes to get to the new stadium from home, how great is THAT?! There were a LOT of thunderstorms in the forecast, so I left my DSLR at home- which I am soooooo cursing myself about because we had great seats. We made our usual stop for tshirts outside the park (sooooo much cheaper!) and then headed into the stadium-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We had field seats, 5th row in right field- couldn't believe how amazing the seats were- leather and cushioned!! We headed down to them-

    [​IMG]

    But didn't stay long, we were hungry, and it was RAINING!!! A LOT!!

    [​IMG]

    Now the old stadium had very limited choices for food- not a whole lot beyond hot dogs, popcorn & cracker jacks. But this new stadium?? This stadium is worthy of the New York Yankees!!! Everything from prime beef steak sandwiches on weck rolls, noodles & sushi, build your own nachos, NY Deli, paninis, garlic fries, a salad bar, and on and on....

    [​IMG]

    As we walked around, there were a few shops with incredible Yankees merchandise- here's one of them-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Half way around, and still raining-

    [​IMG]

    The boys wanted cheese fries from Nathan's-

    [​IMG]

    Personally, I would choose the cheese fries from that garlic fries stand, but whatever....they were happy. We had a spicy tuna roll which was yummy and $9.50, then a Lobels steak sandwich which was $15 and came with a bag of chips- expensive, but delish.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    As yummy as it was, though, afterwards I noticed that they served prime steak on WECK rolls over in right field, and I would pick that over anything- weck rolls are these rolls from upstate NY that my friend Jane turned me onto, they have salt on top and OMG...are they ALL THAT!!!

    The rain ended, and the tarp came off the infield-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time to head back to our seats and watch the players take the field!!

    Cont'd next post-

    While we waited for the Yankees, my men proved YET AGAIN that they are genetically linked by their tilted photo heads-

    They warmed up RIGHT IN FRONT OF US- the Orioles were in left field. Sooooo missing my zoom lens!!! :sad1:

    Hello A Rod-

    His trainer stretching him out-

    The Yankees take the field-

    [​IMG]

    Gotta love this sign on the backs of the seats-

    [​IMG]

    In the field section, you can wave a menu in the air and get food/drink service....which we got ice cream bars for the kids and Pods always has to have a bag of peanuts at the game. Our seats were directly next to Swisher-

    [​IMG]

    It was a good game, and a fast one- ARod didn't hit any Grand Salamis, but Cano hit a homerun which went to exactly where our seats are for a July game. By the 8th inning, the Yankees were ahead 3 to 1, and Timmy wanted to get some souvenirs-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    While we were shopping, a drunk and thoroughly obnoxious Red Sox fan was tossed out of the stadium for not having a ticket, much to the stadium's joy and cheers. Kinda sorry we missed that! I mean, seriously- a Red Sox fan mouthing off in Yankee Stadium??? NOT a very smart move in the Bronx!! Watching the last out-

    [​IMG]

    And the Yankees won in the top of the 9th. Then time to go home-

    [​IMG]

    We were out and home in an hour- a perfect night!! Thanks for listening to my sidetrack- I'll be back soon with the DISmom night of debauchery!

    I remember someone posting his site a few years ago, so I googled "guy who dresses up like Peter Pan" and there it was!! He's a little odd, to say the least. :rolleyes1

    Even without your zoom lens you were able to take great shots! Love all the food choices. When in college I dated a real sports nut and we went to every sporting event within 50 miles of Seattle. Since I was such a serious student I would take my homework/readings with me to work on while he was engaged with the game. I always made him buy me "food" if I went with him. He must have really liked me since he had to buy me a ticket and feed me and then I did not even watch the game. :laughing:

    Well, now leather seats would be wonderful. But ohhh those hot Texas summers. You would have to peel yourself off of them. I love going to the ball games (even those the Texas Rangers need a little work) but I tell you when it hits 100 degrees even after sunset its still hot :laughing:

    That's an understatement!! :rotfl2:

    Yes, but if I would have had my Canon camera, we could have seen his blue eyes....

    I like baseball alot more than I ever did when I was younger due to seeing umpteen million games in the past 8 years played by my boys....prior to that, I was a "what"s there to eat" kinda fan, too! :rotfl: Maybe I still am, I did take a TON of pics of the food options!! HAHA!! We must be VERY special to have been brought to those games!!:rotfl:

    I would imagine those seats would be a little sticky here in the summer as well. Maybe not Texas hot, but hot enough! But at least they're cushioned! :thumbsup2

    I have no doubt he's in a ton of TRs all over the web, the big Hipster Doofus!! :rotfl2:

    The stadium is amazing. I live in Reds country, so the Yankees are not too well liked here! I used to follow baseball when our sons lived at home, but don't anymore. My Dh is not a sports fan at all, he may watch a little golf now & then, but that's it.

    I had to save Peter Pan's site so that I can read it at my leisure. That is one strange dude! Creepy!:confused:

    My DH is a total jock- played lots of baseball, basketball & football as a kid and as a teenager- now he coaches & manages (and is the treasurer of the town's baseball league). My kids were both on the REDS in their house leagues- I have loads of old jerseys and a couple of caps if you'd like me to ship them out to Ohio!! :rotfl:

    I'm so glad she liked them so much!! :goodvibes I figured there might be a few people interested- it's a beautiful stadium- we were so sad to see the old one go, but the entire new one is SUCH a tribute to years & years of Yankees history, we're over it. We are going to another game in July (I think) and I WILL bring my good camera next time, even if there is a threat of rain. We didn't even see everything, and we were there for an hour and a half before the game started. Really looking forard to going back!! :yay:
