So, when it comes down to it, I’m a fan of the New York Mets.
Like a fan, fan. In Europe, their sports have supporters. People that may (in some instances) own the team they love so much. While I’m not an owner, I do think the Mets are the closest thing to a team I support. Though I’m more of a casual fan of the Texans and Brooklyn Nets, while the LA Galaxy and New York Islanders are in the middle, I bleed Metsies Orange and Blue forever.
A couple of weeks ago, I was in Las Vegas for a conference. While Vegas ultimately brings up images of debauchery, I figured that I have some good old fashioned clean fun between meetings. So after hours, I took the opportunity to see the Mets’ Triple A- minor league affiliate, The Las Vegas 51s. Check out my pics from the game (and my incredibly awesome seats!)
For the record, the 51s won their game against the (snicker) El Paso Chihuahuas 6-4! Totally a fun time!
