On the Road Again

People like to ask me, “How do you like Citi Field?”

My answer: “I like it. It’s better than Shea.”

And it is. Shea was worse than the Vet. Citi Field is nice. It’s a pitcher’s park, which is cool. They’ve got Mama’s of Corona sandwiches on the main concourse in center field, which are tremendous. It doesn’t smell moldy in the visitor’s clubhouse. Other than driving past the chop shops across the street, it’s a nice addition to the National League East.

Curious to see how the Phillies handle R.A. Dickey after Tim Wakefield owned them Sunday.

In case you missed it, I wrote yesterday about the Phillies looking for pitching help, although they aren’t nearly as desperate for help this year as last.

Congratulations to the Flyers. I’m not a Flyers fan, but if I suddenly decided to buy my first Flyers t-shirt would this offend Flyers fans, or would you welcome me on the bandwagon with open arms? I sense some sensitivity from some Flyers fans. (If that last sentence offended you, you’re too sensitive.)

I posted a picture of my book today because, well, um, Father’s Day is just around the corner. And the last I checked fathers love to read.

Bye, Bye, Cali

lc03.jpgThe Phillies just completed a seven-game stretch through Southern California.

Now it’s back to the East Coast and Citi Field in Flushing.

Three games at Petco Park in the Gaslamp Quarter …

Four games at Dodger Stadium at Chavez Ravine …

Three games at Citi Field next to a bunch of chop shops …

Citi Field doesn’t have quite the same charm as Petco and Dodger Stadium, I’m afraid. So I leave California with a heavy heart, knowing there are no more In-N-Out lunches and appearances from D-List celebrities like Lauren Conrad to entertain me in my immediate future … unless I run into one of the Real Housewives of New York this week.
