METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 24, 1998 GAME:Richard Anderson
January 26, 2002
Well, both Game 1 and 2 were probably close to the most memorable regular season games I've attended--I was sitting 6 rows back between 3rd base and shallow left, my first trip to Wrigley with my travel contingent (brother, brother's brother-in-law (Doc), and Stu (heretofore refered to as Spammy)...A noon doubleheader, beautiful sunshine, AND A MET SWEEP-- Good natured ribbing of Todd Hundley as he mascaraded as a major league leftfielder...significant beer consumption, great conversation in the stands with "Darned nice Mid-westerners"..a kid grabbed a foul ball next to us in his first baseball game..Doc needed one as he got some sunburn-- Poisonous Sunburn, and thus was moving kind of slow due to it..but the best part was post game festivities...A trip across the street to the famed "Pink House"...The 4 of us bought out Juan the icecream cart vendor for $50, and was our ticket to a keg party upstairs...Grooving to the sound of "Smack my bitch up" by Prodigy, watching my bro holding court with recent college grads on a lounge chair with perfect view of homeplate...watching the groundscrew manicure the magic of Wrigley as the sun set...the walk over to Slugger's for more cocktails ..A Perfect Baseball Day...Unfortunately the hangover lasted 2 days with both Met losses Sat./Sun....good matchup on the Sunday though...Kerry Wood vs. Rick Reed! Wrigley is the best ballpark, BAR NONE!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
