There are certain dates in our nation’s history when Americans remember exactly where they were and what they were doing. One day that stands out for Mets fans is June 15, 1977. That is a day in our history which will live in infamy. Tom Seaver, the face of the franchise, the heart and soul of the franchise, The Franchise, was traded away–no, was discarded–by the team he loved. No player in the history of […]
Throughout the 150+ year history of Baseball there are only a few truly iconic images burned into our psyche: A solemn Lou Gehrig standing at a microphone. Babe Ruth pointing his bat towards the outfield ‘calling his shot.’ Jackie Robinson running onto the field in 1947 and changing not only the game but America. Bob Gibson, cap low over his head, staring in for the sign. Hank Aaron, a black man in the deep south, […]
It was early April. The rosters were set and Opening Day was hours away. Unexpectedly the Mets exhibition game against the Expos was cancelled due to a players strike. With a free afternoon and nothing to do, the Mets manager and some of his coaches decided to walk across the street and play a round of golf at the Palm Beach Lakes Club. Later that afternoon on their way back to the Ramada Hotel where […]
This edition of MMO Flashback goes back to December of 2008 when Rob Silverman who you all know as Tie Dyed, penned a heartwarming tribute to one of the all time great Mets, Tug McGraw. Enjoy! Throughout our storied history, we’ve had more than our share of characters and colorful figures. The fist-pumping curtain calls of Gary Carter have been replaced by the dancing of Jose Reyes. But if Tom Seaver was the heart of […]
This must be what Sandy Alderson and the Wilpon’s think of us as they sit around their luxurious million dollar estates eating their caviar and sipping their imported wine. Safe to say the departure of Jose Reyes, while not a surprise, was like a stab through our collective hearts. We hoped against all hope that somehow, someway, Jose would return in 2012. Our hearts told us one thing but our heads told us something else. […]
Here’s another great article originally written and posted back on February 15, 2011 by the always entertaining Rob Silverman AKA Tie Dyed. It’s a little bit prophetic and some of the comments are a blast to read nine months later. Enjoy… Nakatomi Plaza, Century City, CA: John McClane is acting alone, trying to save hostages from a group of terrorists. But he is not just fighting against the terrorists. The LAPD, the FBI, the media […]
This post was written by Rob (Tie Dyed) two years ago this week. I still get get goosebumps when I read it. By the way, after you enjoy reading this post, check out this interview by MMO’s Jim Mancari who spoke with Mrs. Hodges a few weeks ago. * * * * * * * * Without a doubt the most beloved player in the history of the Mets is Tom Seaver. However, when Seaver […]
In the Jerry Bruckheimer film, ‘The Rock,’ John Patrick Mason turned to Stanley Goodspeed and uttered a classic movie line: “Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and get a World Series ring.” No…wait, that wasn’t it. But this website is suitable for all ages. (I pause now so we can all do our own personal Sean Connery impression.) As another Mets season comes to an August close yet again, the excuses […]
You know what’s funny? Bad news. No, I’m not saying that bad news is funny. But the way people react to bad news is…well, kind of funny. You tell someone that a mutual friend has recently passed away. Tell them that a co-worker you both knew has been diagnosed with a disease. Mention that perhaps you yourself are having a ‘procedure’ done cause something’s wrong and it can be terminal. The way people react (myself […]
