april 28: the mets host "moms & families day" at citi field

Take us out to the ball game
Little known fact (unless you actually know me): I'm not really a sports fan. In fact, it is the ultimate irony that I married someone who LOVES all things professional sports and can quote statistics with the same ease of reciting his social security number. I would like to point out that though he is from Wisconsin, and therefore bleeds green and gold, he does not wear cheese on his head during football games. THANK GOD.

Now, though I have pledged no allegiance to any kind of team, ever, I will say there is something about baseball. Maybe it's Field of Dreams, maybe it's the all-American, peanuts and Cracker Jacks-of it all, maybe it's the cotton candy, but I do not mind watching this particular sport. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when New York's own Mets team invited us to watch a match game a few weeks ago. Husband was VERY excited about taking his girls to their first national league game, and I was excited about taking it all in, and, er, sampling the food options.

Ladies and gents, the Mets did not disappoint -- I love the old-fashioned look of their stadium in Queens (easily accessible by subway), FanFest (which offers batting cages, base running, a live dj, etc), the food (when at a sporting event, just go for the chili cheese dog, you know you want to...) and the family atmosphere. I must also give a shout out to the staff... literally everyone we met, from the guy at the stroller checking to the security officers who gave us directions, were unbelievably kind. It was a perfect family afternoon, despite the chillier weather, which drove us inside about midway through the game. Oh, and they pulled out a win late in the last quarter inning!
