Let's just get right into it. Based on the online quiz we made you a few months back, it's clear you don't know us as well as you think you do. In fact, we're pretty confident that you're still not entirely sure which of us is Serena and which of us is Lisa when you're looking at our pictures. Hopefully, this list of random facts about us (related to baseball, of course. This is a baseball blog, for a lack of a better description), will provide you with more insight.
10 Baseball Facts About Us You Probably Didn't Know
1. Our first baseball game together was a Mets/Braves game at Shea Stadium on September 17, 2005. Adam LaRoche tossed Serena a baseball during batting practice. Here is the view of the field and Mike Jacobs playing first base from our stolen seats:
4. Serena's first baseball game ever was (contrary to what many of you may think) was ALSO a Mets game at Shea Stadium with Fred #1.
5. Lisa's favorite Met/Yankee is David Cone.
6. Mamadukes won an auction at a charity in which Serena was able to be bat girl for a day for the New York Yankees. During that experience, she took a photo with a then unknown rookie, Derek Jeter. Since then, Mamadukes has blown this photo up to unnecessary proportions and framed it for Serena, much to her chagrin. The photo has got to be one of the Top 5 Most Heinous Photos of Serena in Existence.
8. Serena's family used to have season tickets to Yankees' Saturday home games. The seats were located on the first base side because Mamadukes is madly in love with Don Mattingly. And his Tom Selleck moustache.
9. Lisa's friend was once escorted from Shea Stadium on Opening Day for passing out drunk in the ladies' room. Lisa left her friend in the car so that she could continue enjoying the game.
10. We once spent an entire game flirting with a player in the A's bullpen at Yankee Stadium from the left field bleachers only to discover via The Google later that day that he was just a bullpen catcher who had only seen 1 inning of MLB action. We should point out that HE'S the one who started it!
