Hubby Kris was lucky enough to be invited by his friend John to Wednesday's matinee game against the Oakland A's in the new Yankee Stadium. And when he found out that they were Legends Suite Club Seats, he showed up bright and early with an empty stomach and a camera in hand.
The recession hasn't been kind to the Yankee's club seat sales. If you've been watching home games recently, you'll know that the prime section of cushioned luxury seats behind home plate have been looking pretty empty, and Wednesday's rainy afternoon game was no different.
But Kris wasn't going to let dreary weather or lackluster turnout spoil his afternoon...
Here's a quick home video (last names have been bleeped out to protect the innocent, ie. those who were skipping out of work!):
Seats were really close to home plate - Kris yelled out Derek Jeter's name and he actually turned around to look:
John caught a ball that Yankee 1st baseman Mark Teixeira tossed out to the crowd:
The bi-level Legends luxury club suite (apparently you can enter 3 hours before game time and stay 3 hours after the game - that's over 9 hours of eating!):
Buffet style fine dining with "performance cooking" stations:
Kris was too full to try the wild boar borscht or the braised brisket mini sandwiches:
For dessert, Georgia peach streusel, chocolate chip cookies, and Ben & Jerry's ice cream:
Overall, Kris was mighty impressed with the food in the luxury suites. And it's not very often that he finds himself too full to try everything in the buffet. So...why was he still hungry enough to make me share my instant noodles with him when he got home?!
