One ticket in the Legends Club section.
Problems; It is currently about 28 degrees in NYC and pouring rain. And the rules of this opportunity say I must wear, " exactly what is in my picture," or pay them back for the seat ( $2300 I think). No wonder John was able to buy the seats. Who, in their right mind, would go to outdoor baseball in NYC today?
So here is my choice; an iota of tv fame and a free luxury, pleather seat amongst the nation's 1% at today's Yankee game ( 4:05 pm start....WTF?) and certain hypothermia, or trash this once in a lifetime opportunity, and live to complain another day?
There is no real choice to be made here, is there?
I figure my hat will ward off most of the rain for about 30 seconds. The free drinks ( I don't know if they are included ) will get me through another hour or so. Then, once my core temperature drops below 95 degrees, and I begin to lose muscle co-ordination and rational thinking ( actually, nothing new here ), I dial the Yankee version of 911 and hope for the best.
Anyway, if the game isn't called due to rain and overall misery, look for me behind home plate. I'll be right next to some hedge fund guys, maybe even Mr. Trump. The NY primary looms.
Go Yanks. At least I don't have to watch Pineda pitch.
