Happy Opening Day


John has been a huge Yankees fan his entire life, and I chose the Yankees as my team several years ago because Chipper Jones was an ass when we went to an Atlanta Braves game. He was my favorite player back in the day, and I wanted to be a Braves fan like my grandma. But Chipper ruined it for me. So naturally, I had to pick a new team. It was between the Yankees and the Dodgers. I loved the color navy for the Yankees, and I loved the royal blue color for the Dodgers and the way their hats looked. Eventually, the pinstripe of the Yankees won me over.
Since John and I have moved to Illinois, we have obviously become Cardinals fans as well. It just comes with the territory up here. We talk about how we cheer for two teams, but if it came down to the Yankees playing the Cards, we would choose the Yankees every time. I haven't been to a Yankees game YET, but I did get to see the Yankees Stadium when we visited NYC in 2014.
I am so excited for baseball season this year. We live 15 minutes from St. Louis, and we love going to the games. We ride the Redbird Express which picks us folks up in Illinois and takes us to the game for $5 a person. You can't beat that price. It's so much fun riding over with everyone too. You see sweet old couples who have beens fans forever, fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, entire families including wrinkly newborns, and just your average fans.
We have been very fortunate to have gone to several Cardinals games. The organization will run specials on tickets, like $5 tickets, and we will snag some of those. We might see games that aren't as popular, but we still have so much fun! We love going to games when people come to visit.
I feel like there really isn't a bad seat in the stadium either, but I do have a favorite section. The first Cardinals game John and I went to together we sat in section 355. It's the perfect spot. You are on the third baseline, in direct line with the score board, the Arch, and can see into the Cardinals dugout. We have sat in this area a couple of times, and it's just my fave, especially if you are on the rail!

If you go to a Cardinals game, I highly recommend the Ultimate Stadium Nacho Tater Tots!
