... one of the most important experiences in my 19 years on this Earth, no exaggeration. It was the first time I stepped foot in Yankee Stadium. I boarded the metro from work and took it to 161st street, got out, and saw the massive stadium, and got very emotional as expected. I could live there.

My buddy Zach who wasn't available for a 9:45 pickup.....was readily available for a 10:45 pickup. Arriving into New York was awesome, as we flew right over Manhattan.
