Spring training part 1
This is the trip so far. I'm going a bit of stream on consciousness, but it was written at 7:30 am on Saturday morning.
The Nissan Sentra is a cool car, and mixed with the iTrip the rid edown from Orlando was really fun. If you are in Florida, I can not recommend going to a restaurant called "the Waffle House" more. We've eaten there twice already. It's a dive and the service is bad but the food is so good. It reminds me of the Gelndale Dinner. The other people at the Best Western are giving me the stink eye since I've been on the computer since about 6:50a Tradition field, though beautiful doesn't seem terribly Mets like. I mean the name "Tradition Field" sad to say sounds way more Yankee-esque. But the stadium though small is beautiful. The facade on the front is very much like a scaled down version of the field that the Mets and the city were announcing the near completion of the plans on Sept 10th 2001. It was cool seeing all of the regulars - minus Cliff Floyd and Mike Cameron. Carols Beltarn has the same kind of Bat speed that Mike Piazza does. Kaz Matsui and Jose Reyes turned a beautiful double play. I know Reyes is a natural out at short, but Matsui looked really comfortable at second It looks like Pedro is not going to pitch today. That kind of sucks but, I'm sure I'll catch him sometime this season.
