A great start

What a great start to our trip.  Citi Field is a beautiful ballpark, and we saw a great game.  Both starting pitchers pitched 7+ innings allowing only one run, and nobody else scored until the Mets won it in the bottom of the 11th on a walk-off single by Omir Santos.  We also saw our first home run of the trip (also by Santos), a few nice plays, and had a great time with some of our friends from New York who joined us for the game.

We're back at my house now, ready to get some sleep before starting the "road" part of trip tomorrow.  We're going to spend the morning getting the car all ready to go, and then head down to Philly around 2pm.

Keep an eye out here tomorrow for reviews of Citi Field from both Mike and me, as well as some updates as we hit the road.
