Today, my wife and I and the kids (ages 3 and 1) decided to go to “The Bronx Zoo.” No, it was not that Bronx Zoo – it was the real Bronx Zoo. You know, the one with the lions, and tigers, and bears – Oh, my!
We had a good time – it was the first time there for both kids and it has been at least 5 years since we were last there. But, to the point to be made here……
……..the next time that you hear someone complaining about the traffic/cost/crowds/stupid people at Yankee Stadium, please, please, please, tell them to try another “Bronx Zoo” – the real one – on a sunny spring day when the kids are off from school for the week.
After experiencing the traffic/cost/crowds/stupid people at the zoo today, you can give me the traffic/cost/crowds/stupid people at the Stadium, any time. The traffic/cost/crowds/stupid people at the big ballpark in the Bronx is almost nothing compared to the traffic/cost/crowds/stupid people at the zoo in the Bronx.
All it takes is some perspective to realize that there’s a lot worse baggage than what’s at the Stadium.
