As soon as the announcement was made I pretty much knew I would be going to the last game. I watched Mariano Rivera's last game and cried like a baby - and he isn't even my favorite player! I was in such awe of the moment and wished I was there to soak it up with all my fellow fans. So when the Yankees put their tickets on sale I was determined to get myself some tickets. Unfortunately, I think everyone had the same idea and getting tickets was damn near impossible. After some debate back and forth, I decided to go onto the secondary market and bite the very expensive bullet. So come September, I will be heading to the Big Apple!
It will be the hubs first trip to New York so of course we will have to hit up the tourist spots, eat lots of hot dogs and pizza and of course head to the stadium that ends all stadiums. I am happy that I was able to see the old Yankee Stadium before it closed and now I will get to see the new stadium to say goodbye to one of the best players of all time.
I am still a little shocked that I bit the bullet, but am also kind of excited. Anyone else done some crazy things for their favorites?!
