Saturday was a great day for New York Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who recorded his first win in the Bronx as a Yankee.

The same can’t be said for his wife, Amanda McCarthy, who got stuck in some brutal New York City traffic on her way to Yankee Stadium to see her husband pitch and missed some parts of the game.

McCarthy’s wife took to social media to voice her frustrations.

Her gripes are valid. Anyone who has driven in New York understands just how difficult it can be to get from point A to point B in an efficient manner because of the incessant traffic. After all, it’s the largest city in America in terms of population, but nowhere near the biggest in terms of land mass.

Fortunately, the pitcher’s wife eventually made it in time for the end of the game, but she’d like to use a different mode of transportation for McCarthy’s next start.
