We had to be out of the hotel by 11:00 so we took our stuff down to the cars and, you know, did what everyone does. Poured shots in my trunk.
We were hungry and ended up back at Cardinal's Nation for lunch. Mostly because they had open seating - and an available table - at the bar. But also because we checked the menu at Fox Sports Midwest and Cardinal's Nation was much more affordable. We shook things up a little bit this second time around, though, and I had a burger for lunch while we split the fried calamari (with fried jalapenos!) for an app.
After lunch, we made our way to the ballpark. It was HOT and it started to rain a little bit and that's why most of these pictures you'll see us with MESSY HAIR DON'T CARE.
I texted this picture to my friend early in the day:
He responded with something along the lines of, "OMG! Can't believe you're wearing that at Busch Stadium."
First off, they were playing the Yankees.
Second, this is Captain Clutch's last season.
Third, Jeter is a class act and pretty much everyone loves him.
Saying all this to make the point that there were a TON of Yankees fans and more Jeter love than I ever would've imagined. The only attention my shirt brought was a few "LOVE it!" type exclamations.
Anyway. The game ended up being rain delayed. I drank too much beer. The game went into extra innings. The Yankees won. And here are a few pictures of my lover:
Ahhhh. Still sexy after all these years.
I had to leave right after the game and drive back to Memphis. Totally worth it, though. Fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
