the weekend was relatively low-key which suited us just fine. we saw some friends, ate good food, got in a 6-mile run, took naps, and rode our bikes. perfection.
but the real highlight of the weekend was last night.
Billy lived in London for a couple of years (BB – Before Bird), and his favorite team in the English Premiere League (soccer, for those who aren’t familiar) is Chelsea. so you can imagine his excitement when they made this announcement:
European football, i.e. American soccer, played at a NY baseball stadium.
we took the Subway up to the stadium which only took about 25 minutes. the game started at 7:00pm, so naturally Billy wanted to arrive by 5:30PM.
the teams during warm-up.
we simply could not have asked for better weather.
this weather reminds me of September (or even October) in Texas which makes me feel nostalgic. such a treat to get a glimpse of it in July. perfect summer night!
Yankee Stadium is known for having a wide variety of food options, but we were out running errands earlier in the day and decided to pick up some snacks – good for our bank account and our arteries. (you can bring food inside, but not beverages.)
have you been to Yankee Stadium?
this was our 1st time, but we’re excited to go back for a baseball game.
favorite sport to watch live?
I loved watching soccer live – it’s nonstop, high-energy – more like basketball, whereas American football has so much setup between plays.
