One of my most favorite days, EVER, was attending the Yankee ticker tape parade back in 2009. We woke up at 4am and drove to Hoboken NJ and took the ferry down to NYC. We froze! It was so cold and I remember being so hungry.
The day was going great until we got back to our cars. We took 2 cars and parked next to one another on the streets of Hoboken. Problem was it was permit only. OOPS! We got ticketed AND booted! Yep, $800 and removing the boot, later we were finally able leave!
What a mess! Still it was one of the best days!
