Donnie Baseball (clap clap clap clap clap).

So it was definitely an eventful weekend.

I went to NY to see my dad and go to the Yankees annual Old Timers Day game. Always a fun time. Got to see Mattingly get a huge ovation, as well as Yogi, Reggie, Whitey, the Scooter. They only got to play an inning and a half due to rain, but the rain stopped right when the real game started. The Yanks had no business winning this game, with this new lefty Darrell May starting, and he SUCKED, but the Yanks SHOULD have won this game. They lost, 8-7, thanks to untimely hitting by Robinson Cano (double play in the 9th) and A-Rod (two chances to get a big hit late in the game, and he failed both times). Also, rookie center fielder Melky Cabrera misplayed two balls in the outfield that led to a few runs. It was still a fun and exciting game, and the stadium got loud every time the Yanks had a chance.

The rest of the time with my dad was good... he met me on Friday and we went to dinner, then ordered Chinese after the game on Saturday, and he took the ride with me to Port Authority on Sunday. what sucked was all the traffic going and coming. The bus was stuck in two sets of traffic on Friday evening. I got on the 1:30 bus that should have gotten in at 5:50, but instead got in at 7. and yesterday I got on the 12:30 bus that should have gotten in at 4:50, but instead we got in at around 6:15. Yesterday's traffic was due to a truck losing its boxes on Hallmark cards on I-95, causing four lanes of traffic to merge into one. We were basically at a standstill for two hours. "Shrek" was the movie they showed on the bus, and the movie ended even before we left NY. Not a fun time. Melissa picked me up from South Station, we got food, and then relaxed the rest of the night.

We also learned of some interesting news this weekend: Judy (Chris and Judy) is pregnant. Is that a good thing? Well, after all I've mentioned about them (him) before, what do you think...
