A Tale of Two Dugout Seats
The game was close, but the Red Sox had the lead. At the bottom of the 8th, Ash, the cookies and I made our way down to the field level to see if a friend I had made on Wednesday night was around. He was, and with one magically gesture, we ended up in the front row of the field level seats, directly behind the right side of the Yankees dugout and 1st base. Yes, the Yankees were all of 10 to 15 feet from us.
And the closest either of us had been to the gameplay. Here is some Jeter:
And Speed Racer Gardner:
We couldn't be sad at the end of the game, even though it was a close(ish) loss, because we were so close. Before we went to find our friends who didn't have the cookies or feminine smiles, Mo and Cervelli walked past us.
And in between yelling "We love you, Mo!" I got out a quick "Love you too, Cervelli!" and I swear, he looked at us and smiled.
We then went to Stan's with Howie and Davey, where Ashley and I gave a sailor the last cookie. He earned it. Be safe, adorable sailor!
More pics to come later from Wednesday to Friday (each night I got varying levels of seat upgrades) and also from tonight's trip to the Bleachers.
