New York City, New York Mets »

[23 Jun 2009 | No Comment | ]

After the U.S. Open it was time to drive to Queens for the New York Mets game versus the St. Louis Cardinals. Last season, I wrote that I went to Nationals Park to attend a game at every existing Major League Baseball ballpark. Once again, MLB opened up two more parks this season – Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. With the Mets playing on Monday night, my decision to day trip to New York City for the doubleheader – Monday regulation play at the U.S. Open and a game at …

On Thursday afternoon, when play for the U.S. Open was suspended for most of the day, I started to think about attending U.S. Open regulation play on a Monday.

Yesterday I flew from Chicago to New York City (via Long Island Islip Macarthur airport). My plan was to stay in Brooklyn with a friend and attend the New Jersey Devils game at the Prudential Center on Saturday night.
Getting from Islip to New York City was pretty easy. My Southwest Airlines flight was landed 15 minutes early which allowed me to catch the 10:40 am train from the Ronkonkoma train station to Penn Station in Manhattan.

Belmont Stakes, New York City, Prioritization »

[5 Jun 2008 | No Comment | ]

When planning a sports vacation many decisions need to be made. First and most important are the city to travel to and the sporting events taking place in that metropolitan area. This weekend the Ultimate Sports Wife and I had planned to fly to New York City to see Big Brown race for the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes, the US Men’s National Team host Argentina at the Meadowlands and watch the Yankees play in their last season at Yankee Stadium. (I must admit these were the sporting events …
