So all of a sudden these strangely colored orbs are appearing all over our great city. Have you come across any of them? Most of you have probably seen this one, which stands outside the Mets Shop at Citi Field, but what about all the others? Here’s a map of where all these forbidden fruits can be located… And you can check out the many Met fans who are submitting pics of these Apple Sightings […]
I love beating the Yankees. For almost the entire year, Yankee fans are on top. They have memories of championship stories, epic stories of playoff wins, and an unbreakable confidence in their franchise, all things that I, as a 15 year-old Mets fan, don’t have. It makes me sick to my stomach sometimes how spoiled many Yankee fans are, especially the younger ones who didn’t even endure the very few years in which the Yankees […]
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 […]
To take our minds off the floundering excuse for a baseball team, I present to you a look back at a bit of baseball history from a different perspective. Recently, I was lucky enough to interview Gil Hodges’ widow, Joan Hodges. She was so sweet and had so many great stories. As the saying goes, “Behind every great man, there stands a great woman.” Such is the case for Gil. On Dec. 26, 1948, Hodges married […]
Dear Mr. Wilpon, I was recently at the Mets Team Store on the Field Level at Citi Field looking for some Mets T-shirts. After being pleasantly surprised to finally see R.A. Dickey and Angel Pagan number shirts for sale, my jaw dropped when I saw yet another piece of Brooklyn Dodgers merchandise. This wasn’t yet another tribute to Jackie Robinson or Ebbets Field. This was something else entirely. Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you […]
Duke Snider passed away earlier today in Escondido, CA. The former Brooklyn Dodger great was 84. He was Brooklyn’s CFer during what has been called ‘The Golden Era of Baseball in New York.’ And Golden it was. While Duke played CF for Brooklyn, Willie Mays covered CF for the New York Giants and Mickey Mantle played for the Yankees. Three of the greatest Center Fielders in history, all playing at the same time. And in […]
I was about 6 years old when my father threatened to throw me out of the house. The reason was simple. I told him I was going to be a Yankees fan. It was the early 1970’s and I knew nothing about Baseball. But still, I was going to root for the Yankees. Why? As my dad watched the local news one night the sports came on. I was close by, doing whatever a typical […]
“You may glory in a team triumphant, but you fall in love with a team in defeat” “Losing after great striving is the story of Man” Roger Kahn (The Boys of Summer) Roger Kahn, working for the New York Herald Tribune, was the beat writer for the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1950s. He covered them during the Dodgers glory days of Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Duke Snider and Gil Hodges. He witnessed and wrote about […]
