Yes, I’m a Mother and so this past weekend I got treated rather specially by my sons and their families.
The Mets were good to me two out of three days and that’s a lot better ratio than I’ve been used to the past several seasons. However it was not for a lack of trying – the newer players seem to be made of hustle – have you noticed?
Seen Davis with some of those catches and plays around first?
Watched Francoeur run like a deer after those fly balls?
And, for the two out of three games, we had catchers – “Hot Rod” Barajas and Henry Blanco get up in the ninth and eleventh innings and hit walk off home runs consecutively on Friday and Saturday.
Has that ever happened before? I don’t think so, but I hope it will again.
Then on Sunday Ollie Perez put in an ‘appearance’ on the mound – that’s all it was and it was bad – think he was truly trying to pitch a good game? I doubt it. He looked like a sullen child on the mound.
Yes the weather was bad, but everyone else made the best of it. And unless you think that Fred and Jeffie are going to put a dome on Citi Field, we’ll see those conditions again.
So here I am on Monday morning watching the news and I see President Obama appoint a woman named Elena Kagan – a native New Yorker – to replace John Paul Stevens as the newest Supreme Court Justice. And then the President says something about her that really gets my attention -
Elena is a METS FAN!
You’ve gotta love it………….
