Pleasant news this morning when Lars' (a young man from Plano whom I tutor who is on Long Island for the summer) mom, Peggy, texted me and said that we had tickets for the Rangers-Yankees game today.
Lars cousin, the talented Whitney drove Lars to Yankee Stadium for the 1:05 p.m. game, and Jeannie and I met them at Gate 6. Here we are in our fantastic seats:
When we got to Yankee Stadium, Jeannie made a friend.

The winning run in the bottom of the 12th inning. Yankees 3, Rangers 2
Yankees celebrating the win. A questionable call by the umpire helped this to happen.
But thoughts of the Mavericks cheered us up.
We had a great time with Lars and Whitney.
Yankee Stadium was fun, except for the Rangers losing.
After the game we took the #4 Train back to Grand Central Station and got ready to go to what turned out to be a great show.
On the way to the hotel we stopped for a little pizza and ice cream.
On Friday we will tour New York a little and go to see the LA Angels play the NY Mets at Citi Field in Queens.
