Mets All Set To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day At Tradition Field

happy_st_patricks_day_7-t1As the Mets get set to take on the Braves in today’s St. Patty’s Day Sunday matinee at Tradition Field, it will be quite easy to get into the holiday spirit.

 

How cool are these?! The Amazin’s will be running across “Luck Of The Irish” bases today. Normally I would say it’s bad luck to be stepping on four-leaf clovers, but in this case I’ll make an exception.

 

Jeremy Hefner certainly getting into the St. Patty’s Day spirit! He gives us a view of those slick green and orange jerseys. Am I the only one who really wants one of those caps?

Regis Philbin, a fellow Irishman, delivers a strike on the ceremonial first pitch. I guess he’s had some time to work on his fastball since retiring from Live with Regis Michael and Kelly!

Then of course there is our resident boyo Daniel Murphy who is not in the starting lineup today, but thanks to some Luck of the Irish, he’ll be ready to go for Opening Day, where we will hear some Dropkick Murphys echo through Citi Field as he steps up to the plate. I’ll be sure to play a few of the Murphys song just for number 28 during my overnight DJ shift tonight! I’m sure he’ll be listening. ;-)

We here at MMO wish you all a very Happy St. Patty’s Day! I’m green with envy at those fans who get to attend today’s ballgame, what a great way to spend St. Patrick’s Day! What is everyone’s plans for this holiday?
