On the first of May, my friend, Jean S. joined me for the Yankees v. Astros game. We skipped our Grandstand seats to sit in available left-field Terrace seats, having found an unguarded section and rows and rows of seats without butts.
Jean, being a baseball newbie, asked a lot of questions, including if she could guest blog on YBG.
Below are the top five takeaways from the game, as written by Jean:
1. Canada only has one baseball team
2. Jayson Nix has a brother named Laynce
3. Joanna got into a fight with a bongo player on the 4 train. [ed: he is a horrible, horrible man who deserved to be arrested for harassment, panhandling and general assh*lery]
4. Papa Johns makes damn good pizza. [ed: LIES]
5. Innings are stupid.
About Jean S.: Jean lives and works in New York City. Her experience with baseball involves one Mets game in high school (it rained, so we went home); and a Yankees game last summer, when she met Mariano Rivera. However she considers her outing with Jo, Yankees fan #1, to have been her true introduction to the sport.
