I’m going to keep this brief. The Mets definitely have a way of tugging at it’s loyal fan’s heartstrings. So far 2010 should be titled the “Big Tease”. The team first teased us with a snail’s paced, dreadful start. Talk’s of axing everyone from Jerry Manuel to probably a CitiField usher started to pop up in the blogosphere. Then out of nowhere, as it always is with them, the Mets went on a rabid tear. Now once […]
As I’ve gotten older I’ve seemed to have become more and more nostalgic about my childhood. It’s only natural considering in September I’m going to be a father for the first time. I remember the lessons my dad taught me as if he sat me down yesterday. One lesson that made a huge impression was the importance of competition. Nothing ever worth having should come easy, he said. Now granted to me at the time […]
“We- players, writers, fans- talk about the importance of the little things and getting the breaks and clutch pitching and hitting, but sometimes I wonder whether the truth isn’t more simple. The main difference between the winners and losers? Winning.” Keith Hernandez from his novel If At First… The wisdom of Keith Hernandez whether on the field or today in the broadcast booth, has always been the gift that the Mex keeps on giving. His […]
This past Saturday night, the NYPD began an investigation involving an SUV parked in Times Square packed with fertilizer and fireworks that could have been part of some kind of terrorist attack. A report from the Washington Post surfaced that Police and FBI agents are investigating a 911 call placed at 4 a.m. Sunday from a public telephone near Times Square warning of an imminent explosion and that it was only a diversion. Serious stuff […]
The Mets are proving that winning baseball isn’t just measured by pure numbers such as batting averages or home runs or even low walk totals. Winning baseball is a mishmash of that along with solid clutch playing and a really big chaser of luck. Luck isn’t something the Mets are used to lately not to mention their fans. The start of the 2010 season was beginning to feel like a bad epilogue to 2009 as […]
It was once said in a famous quote, “Only Nixon could go to China”. Back in the sixties the Communist states of China and the Soviet Union broke off their strategic alliance. Nixon saw this as an opportunity to gain a Cold War edge on the Soviets by warming up to the Chinese. It was quite unorthodox considering China was still an enemy state. Yet, Nixon was probably the most perfect figure at the time […]
I always tell my friends who are Yankee’s fans, it’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Everything is handed to you. To be a Met fan it takes a certain rare, albeit hopeful, yet borderline delusional personality. The Yankee’s are like the older brother that grew up a Hilton to the Mets kid who grew up in an orphanage. Ok that’s a bit extreme but the Yankees always seem to get all the attention. It […]
With Opening Day finally come (nice win!) and gone, I think it’s high time we put away our collective pessimism, our unified grumpiness as jilted Mets fans, and just have a little fun. Opening Day happens only once a year, right? But as we pop open those adult beverages and boil the mystery meat wonders of pure hot dog goodness , I will allow each and every one of you wonderful Mets fans a chance to jump […]
Boy the last few weeks haven’t been very kind to a few former Metropolitans. Those of you out there who are amongst the millions of reality TV viewers, might have noticed that Darryl Strawberry was among a group of celebrities vying for top billing on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. Ok I admit I SOMETIMES watch the train wrecks that are reality TV. What can I say I get a slight chuckle in seeing other people […]
