New York University Alumni have an active group in South Florida that gets together for social events throughout the year. This past Sunday the NYU South Florida Club met up at the Florida Marlins baseball game. This was an interesting way to combine school spirit with team spirit – half of the group was cheering for their former home team the New York Mets, while the others supported the home team. At the same time both sides of this group bleed purple and white (the NYU colors).
The connections between South Florida and New York are found in many ways – NYU Alumni are just one layer. The most common are the “snow birds” who regularly visit South Florida to escape the winter months in NewYork. They bring with them the zest of New York lifestyle and bickering, specifically about how poor service is in South Florida and how everyone moves so slow.
We do operate at a different pace then in New York; however, Sunday the Florida Marlins hit a little harder and ran a bit faster bringing them a victory over the New York Mets – Marlins 10, Mets 8. Go Marlins!
