Spring Training #1  
Well, went to my first of three spring training games yesterday. The team itself was mainly second-stringers or minor league wannabes because of the World baseball Classic. They were the "Metless Mets" according to coquillagement. I went with donna88keys and M (to protect the innocent) as we have been doing for a number of years now. It's about a 45 minute drive (more or less depending on traffic). Co was very excited when she first heard we were moving to Florida. SHe actually pulled out a map to see how close Port St Lucie was to where my parents and I would be living.

Anyway, we got there early enough to browse the stores and get some food. The day was gorgeous, sunny, near 80 but with a saving breeze.

Well, I just don't understand why you'd waste a perfectly good trip to Spring Training and NOT see the Phillies. There's something wrong with you girls, you know that?

Could be they're on the other side of the state.

It looks lovely down there (minus the Mets jerseys, of course.) I've always wanted to go see the Phils spring training, but we see most of the minor leaguers at Reading anyway, and our AAA team is also close to us, though we've yet to go to AAA game since they moved there.

Hope your guys will at least try this year. It'd be nice to have some competition. ;)
