Mariners vs Yankees

 
While we were in WA- Gabe and I got to go to the first Mariners vs Yankees game of the series.  Of course it was the game that two hours before our beloved(my beloved) Ichiro was traded away to the Scumbags from New York.  Yep, you heard me correct.  The trade happened right before the game and he suited up and played.

 
BOY OH BOY was I shocked.  Sad.  DISAPPOINTED. And with all of the history here of the Yanks taking our sweet players I thought there might be a blood bath in the stands.  True to form when AROD got up to the plate the top row of the bleachers threw out Monopoly Money…. like they have been ever since AROD left for the paycheck….. its been years… we hold grudges.  So when Ichiro got up to the plate was I surprised shocked dumbfounded that the entire arena stood and gave the longest and loudest standing ovation I have ever been apart of???(Gabe had to make me get up- I was obviously upset).  The game was exciting…. the whole crowd was cheering for both teams….. weird really.  And when all was said and done I hope that Ichiro gets the season he deserves.  As we departed( and ran literally to our car- I found free parking where I used to park in HS and it is still shady as all get out- let’s just say that everyone going in that general direction was doing it in at least a jog) the stadium it hit me that Dirk will still wear his Mariners shirt with Ichiro’s name on the back…. now really a house divided.
