In our quest to go all America we decided that we couldn’t leave New York without checking out some of the local sportsĀ and who better than the New York Yankees?! Playing the Cincinnati Reds on a Friday evening in the Bronx, complete with cheesy nachos, beer (at $12 a pint ERGH) and several renditions of God Bless America – we went out in style!

So we weren’t too down with all the latest rules and finer points of the game, but we figured, we both played rounders for at least a couple of summers at school so we at least knew who was meant to be running towards where. But we could not have anticipated how much of a spectacle they put on (with hindsight, a bit stupid – we are in the land of plenty DUH) but seriously I could have watched that whole thing for 3 hours all over again and not needed even a minute of sporting entertainment – we had the veterans, the birthday boys, kiss cam, best dressed of the game, the Yankees players learning Spanish, which do you prefer – frozen yogurt or ice cream, the national anthem (twice) – so many distractions! To be honest I wouldn’t mind if FIFA took a leaf out of their book.

PS. And don’t ask us the final score, we might not have been paying that much attention…
