Pirates Versus Yankees

Do you remember the other day when I said I was going to the Pirates/Yankees games?  Well this is the story of how that all played out.  We met at 10:00 a.m. and headed on up to New York City.  We drank a few umm, beverages on the way up and as we got past Bloomsburg we heard that the game had been canceled. 

When the hell does that happen?  They never postpone a game that early.  I guess it was good though.  It would have sucked to get up there, do some tailgating, eat an expensive dinner at NYC prices then go into the game and have them do a two-hour delay.  Then cancel the game after we sit there for two hours and spend a bunch on beers and whatnot.  So I suppose a thank you is in order…

We turned around and made our way back to Philipsburg.  We ate dinner at the Pub and drank a few more beers.  After a few games of pool and what not, Tim and I went up to the Elks to meet up with my mom and the rest of the family.

We drank a bunch of beers and for some reason shots were involved.  Needless to say I felt a little rough the next day.  In fact I forgot my backpack in Tim’s Jeep.  I slept in my stupid contacts and the one ripped when I took it out.  So I had to have mom take me to Tim’s house, but I could not see anything so it was a bit hard to find his place. 

Anyways, the game did not work out, but we still had a great time.  We are able to exchange the tickets for another game and we are hoping to go up sometime soon.  I am definitely looking forward to it.

And yes, my cousin Tim is a Yankees fan.  We will forgive him for that…
