Default The Game was Cancelled

Yankee Tickets....


I Remember….

That morning I was sitting in my new office with a view looking South. Due to a promotion, I'd been relocated here. What a great view, wall to wall panoramic window! I could see the upper floors of the WTC in the distance. The old office, at 90 Church, was directly across the street from the Trade Center. There my view was blocked by the towers, only giving me sight of the Center's plaza. Just four days earlier, I had dinner there with a coworker.

I was in a good mood, could hardly wait for my day to end. Thanks to my credit card incentive program, I had tickets to see Yankees vs. Chicago at the Stadium that evening.
The sunlight was very bright that morning, I shut my blinds. A co-worker came in and asked me to open them. He heard that the WTC was hit by a plane. I immediately thought terror attack.

We looked and saw a cloud of smoke from one of the towers, we turned on the radio and tried to call our colleagues at 90 Church Street. The call wouldn't go through. Our staff gathered to watch from my window, and then the second tower got hit. All we could see was smoke as we listened to the radio. We were in shock…some started crying…some began praying. Then the first building collapsed..... we saw a mushroom cloud....we evacuated.

I caught a cab, but after a few blocks the driver refused to continue. The city was locked down. I walked home. Everyone looked confused, walking the streets in a daze.
When I reached home, my answering machine was blinking with messages from friends and loved ones, wanting to know if I was safe. I couldn’t help it… I began to cry.
