Santana pitched 8 innings of two run ball. He comes through every time and we finally got run support. The bases were loaded and a fan ran onto the field. It was one of the best "fan runs on the field" moments EVER!
The runner was in a grey sweat suit and ran from 3rd base to 2nd base
He juked the first security guard who fell flat on his face. The 2nd guard caught him and tackled him. What happened afterward seemed fake. The kid's sweatpants fell off. His white bare ass was exposed to the entire stadium. Everyone was going wild. It took another couple minutes to carry him off to left field. They took him into the visitor bull pen and the crowd kept going nuts.
The last time I saw someone run onto the field was at Yankee Stadium. The security there seemed twice the size of the chubby guys at Shea. It took one guy to tackle the gentleman and zip tie cuff him. And they carried him off like a tied up hog for roasting.

Friday evening I planned a birthday dinner for my sis. She's 16+15 and a little sad about it. I'm currently 27. What's the big deal? I guess I'll find out in 4 years. We ate at Stanton Social. The food there is consistantly good. I really like the variety. It's like Americanized dim sum. We had 5 people for dinner and ordered a total of 17 dishes. It was maybe 1 or 2 dishes over. Everything rocked.
Afterwards my sister and brother in-law left for home. Kenny and Winnie (my cousin not so cousin) went across the street to grab a few drinks at Essex. I have been partying there and brunching there for well over 7 years now. We had a few and I saw some old friends that work there. A new bartender started working there and she's absolutely beautiful. Sabrina from Queens. I can go on all day about her. We drink and 10pm rolls by and my good friend Mascha strolls in. It's her birthday party across the street at La Caverna! We grab some more drinks at Essex and we walk a total of 75 feet to catch her party.
La Caverna is an interesting spot. I threw a new years party there about 5 years ago. It was a shit show. Nick, the owner, took care of it all. The place is still around and the place was packed out Saturday night. B&T crowd for sure though. We drink we have fun and we wonder down the block to Congee Villiage to find out they stop serving at 2am. I'm not too happy about that but we switch gears and catch a cab to Wo Hop. We chow down and go home.
Now I'm kicking back watching the last yankee game in the old stadium going back and forth with the Dallas Green Bay game. Kicking back and detoxing.

Here's one I got a healthy chuckle out of.
I once found a girl attractive only after my close friend confessed to me that he was in love
