Seinfest at Citi

Tonight was the most enjoyable game at Citi this season.  The Mets won, and in a clutch fashion with a pinch hit double in the bottom of 8th with the score tied - props to Justin Turner for the hit, but it was already the most enjoyable game before that.  

First of all, I didn't freeze my ass off.  Night games in early May still require jackets, but I wasn't shivering and it didn't feel like a football game in December, either.  The Seinfeld atmosphere made it fun throughout the entire evening, from Keith Hernandez throwing out the first pitch, to Seinfeld trivia throughout the game, to the Soup Nazi handing out prizes for the trivia contests on the big screen, to Jerry Stiller singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame, to even having the wave make its way around the stadium 5 straight times (there was actually a crowd big enough to do that).

Jose Reyes made a couple really boneheaded base running plays - getting picked off first by the catcher while his back was turned and he was standing off base and he later got caught trying to go to third on a ground ball to short.

But it was a good time had by all.
