Converting Yankee Stadium

June 20, 2012 (Part 1 of 2)
Well New York is Sweet.  I haven't had a chance to convert Yankee Stadium yet, seeing as I'm not going until later today.  And the high for today is going to be 94!!!  Freaking crazy right?!?  Summer has definitely arrived.  As for our cheap tickets, there's a member in the Bronx who works there, so we worked through her, or better said, she was kind enough to help us out.

As for speaking with people it's still been pretty tough.  We tried to talk to Josue this week, but because his mom works so much, it's hard, because we can’t pass by unless she's home.  So we're still working with him.  Also we met this new guy named Alex.  I can’t remember if I mentioned him last week, but he's really cool.  He was gonna come to church on Sunday, but he forgot to set his alarm, and slept in even though we went looking for him and stuff. 

I'll answer some more of your questions after the game, because we don’t have a ton of time right now.  But just in case I don't get time I wanted to jump on and send off a quick email.  Talk to you more later.

Well the Yankee game was Sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  There were like 8 home Runs!  It was ridiculous!!!!   But sadly the Yankees lost to the Braves.  10-5 :(   As I said it was sweet.  Derik Jeter, the Captain of the Yankees hit a Home Run off his very first pitch.  It was sooo Sick!!  The Stadium went wild!  IT was SO hot though.  As I said earlier, 94 Degrees, but it felt more like 1000.  But it was so worth it.  I kept my hat clean too, because it's got a white brim.  I'll send some pics home next week.   Also I got up on the Jumbo Screen Two Times.  It was so sweet.  I've never been on a Jumbo Tron before!    Funny story, when the camera turned to us the second time the guys sitting front of us turned around and were like; "you know it's kinda sad.  We didn’t recognize ourselves.  We saw the screen and thought hmm, we recognize those guys”.  We were literally 12 inches behind them.  The Stadium’s crazy expensive though.  Like 7 dollars for a pop, and it's like 6 for a tiny hotdog.  I only bought a drink, but it was a great investment because otherwise I would've died...  Not really, but it wouldn't have been fun.  Also your comment about the Yankee Phraseology took me a second to understand, but I got a good chuckle out of it.  I found out that there's a Canadian on the Yankees team.  So that made me proud.  It was a pretty enjoyable game.  I'm definitely more appreciative of what baseball is now.  Not as good as a Hockey game, but better than Golf.

So yeah, that’s about it for the game.  I'll send some pics next week.  Until then, I love you all, and hope you have a great week.

Love, Carson
