Jon Crispin's Notebook

Sox v Yankees

Posted in Architecture, Baseball, Family, Sport by joncrispin on 01/09/2011

 

This is my great nephew and godson Crispin Duryee who is an avid Yankee fan.

He and his dad had planned to go see the Sox/Yankees game last night but Burr had a schedule conflict and couldn’t make it.  I was more than happy to step in take him, and it was a blast.  I hadn’t gone to a ballgame with an eight year old since Peter was little, and it definitely brought back memories.

It was a beautiful night for baseball and the Yanks/Sox rivalry meant for a crowd that was really into the game.  Crispin is amazingly knowledgable about the Yankees and was fascinated by all the statistical information displayed on the new jumbotrons.  He was a perfect companion at a game; never bored, always in tune with the action and unabashedly rooting for his team.  The Sox won 9-4 which made me happy but was surely disappointing for him.  We’ll see what happens tonight when Burnett goes up against Lester.

    Beautiful photos. You’re two lucky guys. We’re having in-n-out burgers for lunch on Saturday though, so I can’t complain.
