The national past time

I didn't manage to post anything on the blog last night. I was too busy enjoying our nation's past time. My beloved Mets lost to the hated Braves 6-3.

But let me tell you the outcome didn't matter at all to this kid from Queens. Being out in the chilly spring air, eating peanuts and drinking soda, hoping to see Jose Reyes fly around the base pads was enough for me. I was surround by loved ones watching a game that was meant to be see in person and not on a TV screen.

So I guess that's the point of this post. Pack some sandwiches, buy some cheap seats and head out to a game of two this season. It's our nation's passtime and I think we'd all feel a little bit better if we got out to the ballpark.
