We stood on a line for two and a half hours. Allow us to show you the journey:
In case you couldn't figure this out on your own, we did NOT receive a bobblehead. It was a source of frustration for some people in our group. Mainly Lisa.
1. Quite a few people stood on this line, got their bobblehead, and then left. These people are posers and assholes and do not deserve these bobbleheads. If you attend a game, accept your free giveaway, and then leave, the team should remove the giveaway from your person. You need to last at least 6 innings in order to maintain custody of your free giveaway.
2. Why can't teams just make enough bobbleheads to go around? It's not like they're well made. How much money could you possibly lose on the deal? Especially when a can of beer is $20.
3. Some people got to the ballpark at 2 pm for a 7 pm start time. They are losers. While they stood an unmoving line for four hours (probably surfing Facebook and Snapchatting and/or taking selfies of themselves on an unmoving line), the rest of the world carried on. This is sad. Please, reevaluate your life choices, people.
4. If you sell a free giveaway on the internet for more than $0, you are an ass clown. That is all.
Once inside, we went right for the food. Standing around and complaining takes a lot out of you. Sal is a somewhat picky eater, so he just ended up eating two Italian sausage sandwiches, but us ladies are very open minded. Lisa ordered a steak sandwich from Pat LaFrieda's. Everything Gina and Serena ordered came from the Blue Smoke stand. Two platters of mac and cheese - one with pulled pork and the other with brisket. Plus, an order of barbecue seasoned fries. And then Serena needed a brat sandwich. And also beer. Lots of beer. We did not feel very well by the end of this game. Not one bit. Only Citi Field can tell us exactly how much money we pissed away on all of that food.
Wilmer Flores drove in the walk-off home run in the bottom of the 9th to give the Mets the 6-5 win. It made Lisa feel much better...but not completely. Because we still did not have a bobblehead. Nor did anyone accidentally leave theirs behind like we'd hoped. People are so selfish.
