Day 11- Best Day in the City so far!

So today was just an unbelievable day all together! You will find out why here in a sec, but I just want to tell everyone, it may be hard to beat today for the rest of the time I am here in NYC!

Anyway, I woke up and went to work, and things were going good, I did my normal routine of showing up and getting some work that they have for me completed. We had an early interview this morning with an actress from Nickelodeon, Elizabeth Gillies. So that was fun watching the interview, and then I had a meeting with Mickey, my manager just about things that I want to get out of the internship this summer and it was a great meeting, I told him exactly what I wanted and he is going to do his best to help me get more hands on experience and maybe even a couple on camera interviews. So I am definitely looking forward to the rest of the summer, things just keep getting better and better. I thought things were going to stay slow, but right when I think that, they pick right up again. Well after work I headed back to the dorm and got ready for dinner, and that's when my night turned from alright... to UNREAL!!!!!!!

So I was sitting down talking to Elina and Cody about a talk show I had an idea for to highlight Dream Careers and the participants in it, and we started talking and someone came to where we were eating, and said, "I got two Yankees tickets for tonight's game against the Red Sox!" When I heard this I almost couldn't believe it. So I was like I'LL TAKE THEM!!! And was wondering who I should give the other ticket to, well Heather, one of the staff for Dream Careers was my first choice but she couldn't make it, So I called up my buddy Nick, and was like you wanna go to the Yankees game right now. And he was like yeah man, so we headed there. Hopped on the 4 train and it was a straight shot to Yankee Stadium!

Once we got there, the game was in the 4th inning and the Yanks were down, but we weren't too worried, we found our seats and the view was unbelievable...
... We got there sat down right as the bottom of the inning was starting, and who would be up but Alex Rodriguez.. And of course what does he do right as we sit down! AN A-BOMB FROM A-ROD!!! In the words of Micheal Kay, Yankees Play by Play announcer. And from then the game just got better and better, the Yankees were down the entire time but they made a comeback in the middle of the game, and I don't think I have ever been in a stadium so loud when that was happening. Final score was 11-6 in favor of the Red Sox, but the game and the experience, and the fact that I got 2 tickets for free, to one of the best rivalries in all of sports. Made it worth it! We saw Red Sox fans getting in fights, about 4 of them getting escorted away by police, it was the best night so far!!!

WOW, I wish I could say more about tonight, but this blog would go on forever. My first time at the new Yankee Stadium watching the Red Sox play the Yankees will be one of my greatest memories of the summer! I am going to another game on Monday when the Yanks face off against the Indians. It is going to be a great game and its going to be on ESPN baby!!! Anyway I can cross tonight off my bucket list, Yankees vs. Red Sox at Yankee Stadium! Never thought it would happen! This summer just keeps getting better and better!!!
