hello! sorry for no posting yesterday. at the last minute, the fiance was able to get tix to the yankee game! i rushed out of work to come home and change, and didn't get home until late, but it was well worth it :)
the new stadium is beautiful and open, and a total homage to the yankees with photos everywhere.
i really love going to yankee games, and i have great memories of going as a kid with my dad and my grandpa. it was always fun and special, and i still feel that way when i go to games now.
one of my favorite things about the games when i was younger was all of the great "baseball food" at yankee stadium! i mean i do like baseball, but as a 7 year-old, it's pretty tough to sit through an entire game. so i always looked forward to all of the fun treats. without fail my dad always got peanuts, i always got ice cream, and somewhere in between was a hot dog (even though i never liked hot dogs i always got them for some reason), a soft pretzel or cracker jacks.
at the new stadium, there's even more food, and a lot of different choices! i was honestly expecting there to be even more variety with the way people were talking, but it was still prettu overwhelming.
i did think they would have a few more healthy options. we walked around two levels of the stadium fully to scope everything out. the first level had the most variety, and i guess the most healthy choices (although those weren't so spectacular) - that's where the tix cost the most, so not surprising!
i settled on the boar's head vendor for a sandwich, which i thought was one of the best bets- but was surprised to see the turkey sandwich i wanted was over 800 calories! (they put the calories next to every menu item at all of the stands- which is kind of nice, but also kind of stinks!). i chose the roast beef with provolone instead, which was about 100 calories less.
it came with chips- and i was so hungry that i opened the bag on the way back to my seat to eat a few. when i got back to my seat and started eating my sandwich, i was really disappointed to find that the roast beef was really fatty- yuck! i had planned to eat only half the sandwich, but instead i pretty much took out all of the meat except for a tiny bit, and ate the whole sandwich, which was mostly provolone cheese, lettuce and tomato. i also added a little mayo (which i love, but try not really eat much of- i figured a ball game was an appropriate place for it!).
i also had a piece of the fiance's soft pretzel. no pics of the food- it was too hard to balance everything on my lap!
anyway, the game was great- the yankees won! and i'm really glad i got to go, even if dinner was a bust.
alright, off to bed soon- more on today's eats tomorrow!
