Take Me Out To The Ball Game
I always love to see the Mets own the back pages of our local newspapers, but this wasn’t exactly what I wanted to see this morning. Kind of sad actually.
For all those who are saying that Fred Wilpon and Bernie Madoff are not involved in the Mets business just check out Page One of today’s New York Times – right in the center is a picture of “Fred Wilpon, the principal owner of the Mets, with Bernard L. Madoff at Shea Stadium in 1995″
Now that we are learning just how entwined these two men were, perhaps the public will realize the seriousness of their association.
Unfortunately, for now, Fred has tarnished his reputation and Bernie has lost a son just in the past few months. It’s time to turn this over to the authorities and get on with the business of playing baseball.
My first memory of baseball is being carried on my Dad’s shoulders into Yankee Stadium His enthusiasm for the game, became mine, too. I followed the Yankees, because they were Dad’s team, but when a National League team – The New York Mets – came along and built Shea Stadium, I was there, too.
Baseball is a wonderful game, as Nuke LaLoosh says in “Bull Durham”…
“Baseball is a simple game – you throw the ball, you hit the ball and you catch the ball – and sometimes, it rains”.
So, let us come out of the bitter storms we’ve been socked with over the winter and lets enjoy our sport again.
It is a wonderful game and all we want to do is bask in the fun and excitement of it. That is all we ask.
Only 12 days until pitchers and catchers report… Play Ball.
