Now that you know what happened on this night, I will show you the visual proof.
One of my roommates on the left, and me on the right. He was prepared with two warm jackets, I brought one thin Yankees fleece.
Apparently, New York really is the city that never sleeps. This is at 2 a.m. on a Thursday night.
This is a wide shot of City Hall at 2:30 a.m., just in case you’ve never seen it. They were setting up all night. From where this picture was taken, there was a group of around 10 die-hard fans who were trying to reserve a spot for the parade. We were told they were going to be kicked out to across the street, so we headed to Broadway.
A close-up of the podium… 27! Then we went to Dunkin Donuts…
We weren’t with it, I’d say. Trivia began shortly, but then we all got cold because DD wasn’t heated.
This is the first bank we stayed at. My roommate is literally drawing a picture of himself, and I’m thinking about god knows what. Also, it kind of stunk that we were wearing the same hat, so I made a change.
Open at 5 a.m. We got there at 4:58.
The right is a thermal hoodie (extremely comfortable and warm), and the left is the official World Series champions hat. After going to Modell’s, we took our places for the parade (five hours before it began).
These two pics were snapped a couple hours before the parade started. Notice the toilet paper flying around in the first one.
It was everywhere.
