Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: The Yankees 😀
Where to begin? My apologies to all the great followers of THEJNSREPORT. I’ve been away for a bit dealing with various other projects and issues. Here’s to more regular updates and posts. With that said.
I’ll begin with the MLB postseason looming large, and the fact that our NY Yankees have stunk as of late losing back to back games against our loathed rival the Boston Red Sox…Ughhhh. It leaves me wondering if our Yankees will be able to even make the Wild Card.
Two nights ago THEJNSREPORT and J Cellan Designs’ CEO Jim Cellan attended the Yankees game and it was truly an awesome surreal experience! The Red Sox are in town and it’s time to live up to those pinstripes and show the world how you do your enemies at home.Instead the game starts with a good beat down of 6 runs scored in the very first inning for the Red Sox. Not a good start to the game by any stretch of the imagination. There are a bunch of excuses to be made about the roster and injuries but none forthcoming from this Yankee fan.
I mean we hadn’t even gotten our first plate of food from the Legends Bar/Lounge Restaurant before we noted the score.
You step on the field as “Paid Professionals”. You are representing the winningest championship franchise in the history of the MLB and your playing your arch nemesis at home. I’m sure some of that resonated within the team. But it also felt as if the team just didn’t have their A game and weren’t able to once so many runs scored right off the bat (no pun intended).
The Legends Bar/ Lounge Restaurant was a very cool experience. Wristbands given to us allowed unfettered access to “free” all you can eat dining and an exclusive stairway leading us out to the stadium seats at the lowest level for seating. I mean first class all the way.Yes also sampled a couple of cheeseburgers fresh off the grill. Food servers dole out the portions onto your plate as you survey the buffet spread, though you can request how much you want of whatever.
That said, I did note some employees seeming non too happy to be there and having an “annoyed at one’s presence” look on their faces as you asked for food. I mean the tickets paid for the seats we had (which include this exclusive dining experience) aren’t cheap. The attitude by everyone working there serving should be give these patrons as much of whatever it is they want as the hosts explained to us. We shouldn’t experience workers almost grudgingly giving one food. After eating we made our way out to our seats to see the game up close & personal. Yes we were this close to the action. Unreal experience I’ll never forget.
The grounds crew doing work.I couldn’t help but laugh at comments some fan was yelling at the Red Sox as well as the Yankee players. Here was just hoping Yankees could get out of the inning without more runs being added to the deficit.Here was hope that the Yankees would start to make a run to get the game back within reach.
Alas it wasn’t to be as we fell to the Red Sox 9 to 4.
Reflecting on the losses of Yankee greats like “The Sandman” Mariano Rivera, & last year Derek Jeter from the eras of Yankees Dominance and with the passing of Yankee legend and Hall Of Famer Yogi Berra it’s another reminder that change is inevitable. It will come. So with that in mind and knowing with the passing of elders comes the future youth to take their place, I’m looking forward to seeing the team bounce back and not get swept this series. Hopefully we’ll be able to hold on and get to the Wild Card game. Hopefully some new Yankee blood will emerge as the next wave of Yankee greats.
