Yesterday my oldest son and I went to a Mets game, we are rabid fans. Lets say if you sit next to us if you don't want to hear booing and screaming, I suggest that you move. This was his Mother's Day gift to me. He purchased field level seats for us right off of first base. He would have got them off of third but he did not want to be embarrassed any further by the things that might have come out of my mouth regarding David Wright and Jose Reyes. Yeah, Yeah I know I am old enough to be their mommas but please they are a gift.
So we have great seats and I am pumped because I might catch a foul ball (hey I was with a championship softball league, back when the game was invented).
So the reason for this post is this:
The people behind us were annoying. Not annoying because they were loud fans but annoying because they were not watching the game. The wives knew jack about the game and were on their cells the whole time., talking to their children, their girl friends, the soccer coach, and their rabbis. At one point one of the woman screamed ohhh its Israel. The husbands were talking work, I might hire 10 more workers, wow you are doing that good. Hey who are you going to vote for in the Presidential elections. Every single time there was a play they wanted to know hey what happened. I wanted to turn around and scream for god sakes people you are at the damn game shut up and watch it already. As my son and I had to lean over the rail and practically sit in the people in front of us laps, the morons behind us continued to ponder if they should have beer or water, and miss every single play, the husband surmised what might have just happened and then had to explain to the wives how the game is played.
Granted the game blew but they made it worse.
