Each year BF and I go to a day game with our friend Judy to cheer on the Mets. It's a wonderful tradition and we truly enjoy every minute of it.
We arrive by subway at Citi Field. We walk around and locate our brick outside.
We wander around the stadium before the game and enjoy the best lunch in the house.
We stand for the National Anthem (removing our caps, of course) and watch the ceremonial first pitch. This year that honor went to Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas.
We hope Mr. Met will come near us for a picture (he didn't --- this was as close as he got).
We take the traditional sock knitting picture before the game.
Unfortunately, we almost always watch the Mets lose. But we still go. We love our traditions. And we love our Mets. Let's Go Mets!
