Heading down to the Stadium for the rumble in the Bronx...

My father, my two brothers and I are on our way down to see our hapless Mets take on the not-quite-so-hapless-but-still-underachieving Yankees tonight.

It should be a good one regardless of the outcome as the EVIL Pedro Martinez makes his first return to the mound against his old rivals since the Red Sox beat the Yanks in last year's ALCS. He'll face off against the Moose.

The Mets are the only professional sports team that all the men in my family can agree on - should be a terrific outing. We'll be in the Upper Deck - TR22, row S if anyone wants to buy me a beer. Look for the four guys pumping their fists every time Pedro racks up a "K".

Have a good evening - the next time I post I will be choosing tomorrow's Diane Lane Photo of the Week.

UPDATE: 7:30am 6/25/05

METS WIN! 6-4 - Pedro was awesome although Jeter slammed a homer off his second pitch. What set the tone was a dropped fly ball by Bernie Williams and it all went down hill for the Yanks from there. Tino Martinez made it interesting in the ninth with a two-run homer but one out later and Mets fans and Yankee fans (the ones that were still there) were filing out of the stadium playfully (and some not so playfully) taunting each other. Man, the exit ramps smelled like B.O. and I had too pee something awful.

On a side note: Giuliani was there. Security made us take the long way around the stadium to get to our car in the parking garage.
