Sleeping At A Major League Baseball Stadium Is As Awesome As It Sounds

Andy Campbell / The Huffington Post

Every American child has had that fantasy. The baseball game ends, the stadium closes and everyone leaves -- except for you. You, the coolest kid in the world, run freely on the field, watch a movie on the Jumbotron and eat all of the snacks you can cram into your child belly.

It's an American Dream so powerful it brings a tear to your eye. And it can be yours. The New York Mets held the second-annual Citi Field Sleepover on Saturday, a tradition so awesome you won't even miss your father-son memories from Shea Stadium.

We've compiled the definitive list of reasons why you can't miss this opportunity next year. For only $200, you can pitch your tent on the field, meet Mr. and Mrs. Met, and play catch with likeminded American fathers, sons, mothers and daughters.

It's a real party. OK, you're not allowed to bring booze, but rest assured, you'll be high on America, you guys.

BONUS: With unlimited access to hot dogs, you can hold your own hot dog eating contest. We tried, but while they may have served Nathan's hot dogs, those buns were NOT regulation.
