Citi Field

 

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Sara, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Citi Field

 

St. Johns played Georgetown in baseball on Sunday at the Mets new home, Citi Field. It was a soft opening for the stadium, to work out some glitches before the two exhibition games against the Red Sox, before the real opening on April 13th. Sara had tickets and was in attendance. She recounted her experience with the guys when she got back.

It was awesome. I can’t wait to go back.”

 

Wow. That good?”

 

Better. Expensive, but better.”

 

Beer hit $10?”

 

No, actually it was ‘reasonable’. Slightly cheaper than last year. The Shake Shack stuff was only slightly marked up.”

I can get Shake Shack here in Manhattan anyway.”

 

They got beer in that new stadium?”

 

That’s a stupid question. But you’ll appreciate this, they’ve got some unique Brooklyn Brewery beverages.”

 

They brought over the Shackmeister Ale from Shake Shack? Blue Smoke had one too right?”

 

Yeah. Blue Smoke Blend or something. The Box Frites and the taco place each had their own too, which I think might be Citi Field exclusives.”

Now that’s cool. I hope the Yankees have world class beer.”

 

Everywhere should have awesome beer.”

 

Wasn’t it a crappy day yesterday? How’d your stadium hold up?”

 

Oh, it was cold. It’s more open, which seems like it means it’ll be colder. I didn’t care about the game though, so I left before it was over. I think Georgetown won.”

 

Sightlines good and all?”

 

A couple of spots have some issues, but nothing too major. A couple of overhangs, some outfield seats understandably have problems seeing some of the corners.”

 

Guess the biggest drawback is that the Mets play there then huh?”

 

Sara punches Frank in the shoulder.

 

Can it. You know the Mets will do better this year than your silly Yankees in their House That Ruth Didn’t Build.”

 

Is that a wager I smell?”

 

No, that’s Scott.”

 

I was on my way to the shower, but I wanted to hear Sara’s review.” Scott departs.

 

You’re on Frank. The Mets will do better than the Yankees. What’s the prize?”

 

I win, you buy us Yankees playoff tickets, and vice versa.”

 

What if neither make the playoffs?”

 

If neither make the playoffs, we take the money we would’ve spent, and buy enough beer to keep us drunk through the World Series.”

 

There isn’t enough beer in New York for that If the Mets blow it again.”

Snow Day!

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank

Subject: Snow Day!

Yikes! It’s still snowing!”

It can snow all week for all I care. I hope I miss work tomorrow too!”

This is one time I’m glad I no longer have a car. Having to spend 15 minutes cleaning off your car before you can go anywhere in the freezing cold isn’t fun.”

That’s why I park my car in a garage!”

You park your car in the garage because when you used to try to get street parking, you’d forget about alternate-side parking and have a zillion tickets.”

Doh. Well, I’m still glad it’s in the garage on days like this.”

Someone get Tabitha a cup of hot chocolate or something so she stops shivering in a ball on the couch?”

I’m on it.”

Add a little chipotle powder, gives it a nice flavor. Plus, the heat makes you feel warmer!”

No spicy!” Tabitha mumbles from amidst the blankets.

However, it is fun to watch the snow from inside a warm house. With hot chocolate. It’s so beautiful.”

Seems March really is coming in like a lion.”

And out like a lamb too you think?”

Didn’t you buy tickets to a Citi Field game or something late March? I bet you hope it goes out like a lamb.”

I always thought it went out like a lamb because lots of people eat lamb for Easter?”

Easter’s not until the 12th though.”

Probably more of a Spring, rebirth, baby animal type thing. The end of March is springtime you know.”

Yeah. That’s probably it. I guess we could look it up..”

Frank gazes at the computer across the room from his seat.. “And get up? Naah…”

Actually,” pipes up Tabitha from the couch, “It has to do with the position of the constellations in the March sky. Leo early, Aries late.”

This Post Brought To You By 6th Floor Blog

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Frank, Billy.

Subject: This subway ride brought to you by 6th Floor Blog

Ugh! You and your MTA!” Ann says, throwing her coat at Billy as she arrives home.

What happened now? Your train explode?”

No, I..” Ann pauses, “Explodes? Is that something I need worry about?”

Nah, almost never happens. Hey, you don’t ride the F a lot do you?”

Who rides the F anymore? Ha! What’s up Ann, you get annoyed at the endless reminders about searches?”

Frank starts speaking in a deep, throaty voice, “…reminded that backpacks and other large containers are subject to search by the police.”

I so wanted to be the guy that makes all those recordings. How cool would that be? I don’t quite have the clout for that though.”

Clout? Isn’t that word a little big for you Billy?”

It’s only five letter’s Sara, not that big.”

Sara sticks her tongue out at Billy. “No, I bet she’s annoyed at those damn Marie Bartiromo ads.”

The CNBC lady? She’s not that bad looking for being 40.”

I don’t care what she looks like! It’s not you see her anyway, it’s just another freaking recording where she identifies herself and tells you to watch the gap. I was only on the platform for a couple of minutes and definitely heard it a couple of times. What’s the world coming to that even our safety announcements are sponsored?”

I did hear something about that actually. I’d forgotten about it. I’d rather them sell advertising space than have a fare hike. Well not really, since I don’t pay to ride…haha..I’d rather them give us all raises though.”

I’d rather them give you a raise too, or not raise fares..or really anything other than that. I could swear that the damn ad is louder too.”

I didn’t end up taking the subway the last couple of days, I could see that being annoying though. I’m already so inundated with announcements that I tune them all out. It doesn’t help me hear the info I actually need to hear.”

I am usually pretty good at letting stuff go in one ear and out the other, but this one just annoyed me. “

I hear that. What won’t they advertise on? Will we swipe our card and have our remaining balance brought to us by Chase? Will we soon know it as the Jetblue E train?”

That could be horrible. Although if they started sponsoring specific trains, you’d hope the Yankees create the Lou Gehrig 4 train.”

Sara takes her turn imitating the MTA recordings. “Ladies and Gentlemen, there is a Jose Reyes #7 Express train approaching Citi Field.”

Now there is an idea I could get behind!”

I apologize for my horrible horrible photoshopping, but I’m tired now and don’t want to play with it anymore.
