Photography: She’s Making a Human Part 3

When dad-to-be is a baseball player, guess what baby boy will be spoiled with?
My sister Julissa is busy making moves for a baseball themed baby shower, and I’m lucky enough to capture this duo for the festivities… so game on!

Far A Way, Four-Oh-Eight

Meeting up with Randy is always fun. He mentioned he had some tickets to a game and I was down. We planned to meet up in front of The Hard Rock at the stadium, and once I got out of work I headed straight over there. I almost forgot how packed it gets on the train and on the exit of 161st when it’s game time. Since we were early we walked into Billy’s for a quick 2 beers.  I’ve been to Billy’s once  quite some ago, and I don’t remember it looking at great as it was. It looked like huge club, with one wall of  brick (which I loved), the rooftop was a nice touch, and was directly under the passing train, but since it was so damn hot, the last thing I wanted was for my beer to start melting. We stayed inside and rocked out to the beats while we caught up, exchanging war stories from the last time we hung out. (See that HERE).We walked inside, and I was having flash backs. I used to work at both the old stadium and the new one when I was younger. I used to sneak away from my stand and go watch the games. It was a pretty sweet gig as a teenager, and the tips were pretty damn great. The clean up, was not.We roamed the different floors before getting to our level. I ask him what are our seats, and he screams  over the loud music, “Far away!” I’m like … that’s not an issue, I like it that way, but what are the seats? He just stares at me, quietly with the look like “I just told you” Apparently he said 408, not far away….ooops.

 The view from our seats were great, at least the ones we sat on… a couple kinda of took over our assigned seats, but we didn’t  care too much. Yankees VS The Mets, this game was going to be good.Randy snuck away to get some beer, and came back with a huge bag of popcorn, there was no way we were going to finish the whole thing. Sooooo, that’s when the popcorn fight began. Oh, but it started out nice, one popcorn thrown nicely when the other wasn’t looking, and one of us..cough cough… ended up with the whole bag thrown on her head! Thanks!

Mets VS Pirates

Surprise dates are the best dates. My guy sends me a message ” Guess what?” I reply with ” You won the lottery!?” He laughs, ” Close, I won something.” At this point I’m lost, so I just stay quiet and wait for him to fill in the blanks. ” I won tickets to a Mets game!”

Sweeeeet…. I mean, I don’t know how that’s close to winning the lottery, however it pretty damn awesome that he won tickets. He tells me, he signed up for a raffle at the bar close to his job, and never even expected to get the call. I’m already out of work and and stop by one of those touristy shops you always seem to pass by. I didn’t necessarily want to invest in anything Mets related, since all my life I’ve been raised to be a Yankee Fan. So I settled for blue and orange hat that read “New York” in bold letters… my own way of saying ” I could wear it again to a Knicks game if it came down to it.”I have never been to Shea stadium, now Citi Field at all. I’ve gone to many Yankee games, and even use to work at the stadium a long long time ago, both the old and new one. Citi Field seemed cleaner and family friendly. Yankee stadium is overwhelmed with rowdy  fans. ( I secretly love it) We ordered some chicken tenders with cheese fries, and about 3 beers back to back. What’s a game without a few beers?

Chris kept giving me a face every time I mentioned Pirate’s Starling Marte was my boyfriend, all I could do was crack up.

We had a nice time rooting for separate teams, especially when we kept rubbing strikes in each others faces.

I lost anyway..or should I say the Mets did., minxinx
