Great night in the Bronx

So glad my bud, Chris, sent me an email last week asking how to get tickets to a Red Sox/Yankees game. My first thought was,"Yeah right". I've only been to a hand full of games. My neighbor called me up with free tickets last Sunday for the Tigers and it was great but Yankees/Red Sox? I did respond to Chris with a note of I'm not sure except for Stub Hub or Ebay. The next day I emailed my sister-in-law because they live near the city. I didn't expect much but my brother-in-law made a few calls and got us 4 free tickets! I was blown away. Thanks, Mark!
We got a great game too. Dice K and Andy Pettite were on the mound. Yankees had a good first inning scoring 2 runs and Dice K looked shaken. Red Sox got a run in the second and third inning and it was turning into a nail biter. Dice K settled down and Andy Pettite pitched really well. Derek Jeter finally hit a solo shot to take a 3-2 lead. Unfortunately, Jason Varitek responded with his own that made the seats just under where we were sitting. It was a 3-3 game till Johnny Damon hit a two-run shot just near the foul pole in right field. Good enough to be the winner. Joba Chamberlain hit the 100 mph mark, gave up one hit, struck out a couple and did an nice job in the 8th inning. Fans are really loving him and we got a laugh with the Jaba the Hut picture the stadium posted on the board. (Cameron Diaz was there too!) It was fun to see Mariano Rivera come in the 9th with the "Enter Sandman" theme and get the job done. I enjoyed this especially because some co-workers told me they're not intimidated by him anymore. Hee-Hee.
I was glad Chris, being a Yankee fan, was able to see a GREAT game in the Bronx. The fans got a little wild near the end when a Red Sox fan got up and started shouting negative comments about the Yanks. The New Yorkers returned the gesture. :) It's a great rivalry.
Did get home around 1:30 am so it was tough staying up last night to see Roger Clemens take on the Red Sox. I did fall asleep and wake up to see the Yanks won again in another great game. PTI guys on ESPN said Josh Beckett would take the win so it's good to see Roger prove them wrong. Nice that two ex-Red Sox throw aways did the Red Sox in two days in a row.

Yeah, that was awesome to see!! Really enjoyed it and so did my client! Glad we won last night too, that helps out...
Glad you took him to the game, curt - his very life may have been devastated if he went to NYC and didn't get to a yanks game - thanks from his grateful wife! only if he would talk about something else, now, eh? ;P
It was a pleasure! I didn't know Chris was a Yankee fan. I was so glad to help out. We really got a great game too. I thanked my brother-in-law yesterday. He was glad we had a great time. Now we know it was the first game of a Red Sox sweep. I would say they were on a roll if they didn't get beat so bad last night by the Devil Rays. What a shame. They could have picked up another game on Red Sox and Mariners.
