Awesome Retro Mets YouTube Clip….
A friend passed this clip along to me way back in April, and I was going to write about it then, but never got around to it. Well, now that it’s the off season and we are all stewing in the aftermath of another failed Mets’ season, I thought it would be a good time to share this for a good laugh as well as a good feeling of ’86 nostalgia.
The clip is from 1986 when the Mets were getting prepared to take on the Red Sox in the World Series, and features MTV’s Martha Quinn interviewing two very boyish looking Mets in Roger McDowell and Lenny Dykstra (we all know too well now how sad Dykstra’s life has become). I love it when Quinn asks Dykstra what band he’d like to be in and who he likes, and he says with his trademark lisp, “Huey Lewis” and “The Rolling Stones” before then telling Quinn he likes her better. Smooth, Lenny, way smooth. McDowell, for the record, likes Level 42 and Mike & The Mechanics. Man, how ’80′s are those bands?
Then they show the video for “Let’s Go Mets,” that song I remember all too well…I remember feeling so pumped up hearing that song even as the Mets had just lost to Roger Clemens in Game 5 and were down 3-2 in the Series.
Anyway, enjoy the video…..because us Mets fans sure could use a laugh these days….
