Bobby and Danny sent Cathy and I to Citi Field, via limo, to see a Mets game in celebration of our 50th birthday. We got to experience the game from the Pepsi Porch where we both wanted to see a game from. To make the game more memorable, it was against the Atlanta Braves. As if that weren’t enough, it rained the entire game and Mike Pelfrey won a 1-0 rain shortened 6 inning game.
