This Picture Was The Highlight of My Friday Night

The Friday night game against the San Diego Padres was part of the package I bought in the off season.  Since I had to be at work on Friday I usually meet up with Karen and Lee at our seat.  I arrived at Citifield at about 5:30 and decided to take a stroll around the stadium.  Mr. and Mrs. Met were in the Fan Fest area behind centerfield and since it was early there was no line of people.  I was able to get someone to take a picture of us.

After the game started the message board invited people to upload pictures via Instagram or Twitter.  Two innings later this photo was posted on the message board for about 2 seconds.

The game was a disaster for the Mets as starter Logan Verrett game up 5 runs on two home runs in the first inning.  He gave up 3 more in the third and was yanked.  He will obviously be taken out to the starting rotation and possibly be sent to the minors.  The Mets scored 6 runs which is a minor accomplishment, but it wasn't enough as the Amazins lost 8-6.  The only consolation with that the bullpen did not allow any runs.
