As food lovers, we wished to know how you felt about our meal intake at the last Yankees Stadium trip we made. Thankfully, we heard no complaints about feeling the need to vomit after reading last week’s post, so that’s a positive step in the right direction. Of the 3 meals that we devoured that night, 6 of you went with the old reliable foot long hot dog. Okay, we can understand this loyalty. We love hot dogs, but at the same time, how could you deny the glory that is loaded nachos and fried Oreos? 3 people went with the nachos because they’re “a Mexi-CAN, not a Mexi-CAN’T.” Only 1 person voted for fried Oreos? 1? 1?! Really, people? We’re completely shocked. Maybe you don’t know what fried Oreo is. We’ll explain. Perhaps this will change your mind. It’s an Oreo cookie (we all know what that is, right?) and as we all know, Oreo cookies are great. This great cookie is dipped in batter. A batter that is beautiful. Then, dripping in this beautiful batter, the cookie is deep fried. Just so we’re all on the same page, we’ll repeat that last one. Deep fried. After the frying, the cookie, still steaming, is covered in powdered sugar. Do you copy? Okay then...tell us what you think of fried Oreos after reading that.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of our systems…we present to you our guided tour of Citi Field with Papa L.
After several bathroom breaks on the part of Papa L. and Serena (it’s like they belong in a nursing home, sheesh. Lisa’s the only one with a normal bladder), we joined the 12:30 tour. It began in Citi Field’s control room.
Our next stop was to visit a hoighty toighty luxury box to see how the other half lived. Well…now that we’ve seen it, we hate those people even more, so thanks for that, Erik.
Outside the clubhouse is something as majestic as Niagra Falls. It is the beer cooler for the entire stadium. Serena heard angels singing. For some reason, it’s locked behind a fence. Wonder why that is…
here), which we’d already been to, but since Papa L. hadn’t, Lisa made sure to take pictures of him with his beloved players from the 1969 team…
Post season slots are rapidly filling up as October draws near. On Saturday, the Rangers clinched the AL West with a 4-3 victory over the Athletics. The Phillies followed shortly after, clinching the NL East with their resounding 8-0 defeat of the Nationals on Monday night. This signals Roy Halladay’s first foray into October Baseball. This is mind blowing when you think about what he’s been able to accomplish throughout his career. While the AL East hasn’t quite been decided, both the Rays and Yankees secured a playoff berth with their wins on Tuesday night. That division is probably going to come down to the wire. Our only regret about going to France is that we’ll miss watching the outcome. We’ll have to read about it en Français, which should be interesting since Basically, Serena has only learned curse words and the phrase, “that’s what she said” from her coworker, Pat and Lisa knows “bonsoir.” The Reds defeated the Astros 3-2 in wall-off fashion on Tuesday, officially awarding them the NL Central. This is the first time in 15 years that the Reds will be going to the playoffs. The Braves continue to cling to a small lead over the Padres in the NL Wild Card race.
A few weeks ago, we presented our picks for the playoffs. How did we stack up?
Lisa chose the Rays and Serena picked the Yankees. Division’s still up in the air, but we at least got it right when we said that the Wild Card would be coming from here. Lisa picked the Yankees for the Wild Card and Serena picked the Rays.
Lisa picked the Braves and Serena went with the Phillies. Looks like Serena had the winner here. Both think that the Wild Card will come from here, but Lisa’s guess that it’d be the Phillies is clearly wrong. Let’s see if Serena goes 2 for 2 in this division with her choice of the Braves.
Both of us accurately went with the Twins.
Again, Serena got it right by guessing Reds, while Lisa inaccurately anticipated a late season comeback by the Cardinals.
Both of us went with the Rangers, but that wasn’t too hard to figure out, considering the team’s performance all season long.
This division hasn’t been decided yet, but both of us are putting our money on the Giants and their dominant pitching staff.
We catch the flight to Paris this evening, landing early tomorrow morning, so until the October 15th, we say au revoir! Since we won’t be around for it, we’d like to wish Brother a very happy birthday ahead of time.
“Because we’re bad, we’re bad. Cause Serena went on the golf cart (Bad. Bad. Really, really bad). You know we’re bad, we’re bad. You know it (Bad. Bad. Really, really bad). Cause we want that apple back (Bad. Bad. Really, really bad). And the whole tour has to answer right now just to tell you once again, who’s bad.”
