Great Day in NYC

Posted by Shane

I spent the better part of the day today in NYC with my sister. As I said in my previous post, I went to the Yankee game today.

The day game of the double header because of the rain postponement yesterday canceled that game. My sister has some great nosebleed seats and you can see the field great. The game was a problem. The Yankees lost 7 to 1 getting the only run in the bottom of the 9th inning. And this was against the Tampa Bay Rays! (Though.. we are in 4th place and they are in 1st. Go figure.) They Yankees did win the night cap, but I was already back home by the time the game ended.

After the game we went out to dinner to a Mexican restaurant on 81st and 2nd ave called Blockheads. I give this place 4 thumbs up. I had the chicken casadias, large portion, and gobbled it quickly.

I have pictures, that is, I have to wait for them from my sister. That’s about it! I’ll be heading back down to VA Monday night to get the rest of my stuff. I have more good news that I will post up Monday.

As of this date, I am leaving Fairfax, VA and moving back to the state of NY for the time being. I will be officially moved out of VA on the 18th of this month. I visited my new apartment in NY and took pictures. Once I am able to download them, I will post them up.

I’ll be posting more updates in the coming days on WordPress and other things that have been going on. I am going to a Yankee game this Saturday before the Stadium is demolish at the end of this season and I will for sure get photos of the game. Hopefully it will not be cancelled. So for now if you are looking for me, please excuse my absence. I been very busy switching everything back to NY.

MLB Uses Instant Reply

Posted by Shane

Last night during the Yankees game they used for first time instant reply to decided if a ball hit by Alex Rodriguez was a home run or not. The ball from perpectice looked like it hit in fair terriotory behind the yellow foul line. The umpires for two minutes went behind the dugout and contacted MLB.com technicians. When they came back they ruled it was a home run. Now Baseball is now offically going to be fair to all teams and there will be no more 1999 World Series disputes. If you remember, a fan plucked the ball from the air making it a home run instead of making it an out.
