Sports Corner Is Going to the Ballpark

Yes, with at least some degree of comfort in a generally vaccinated NYC and outdoors, I am going with my wife and friends to tonight’s Mets-Braves game. At press time, both times are dealing wtih injuries to pitchers and no starters have been named. But the point of going isn’t the pitchers. It’s to be at Citi Field for the first time in ages to enjoy the sights and sounds of a night at the park. Though it would be nice if the Mets win.

As ever, all sports subjects welcome. And a reminder to check out the NBA Playoff Thread, no doubt with extra analysis of the draft lottery.
