Escaping The Mets

So for the past few years my family has been trying to get to the Garlic Festival. Today was it. I had to make a decision; watch the dreadful Mets or indulge myself in everything garlic. Hmmm?

I was having lovely day with the family and seeing some friends along the way, just a wonderful time really. I made one mistake though. I wore my NYM t-shirt. By 1:30pm a nice gentleman got next to me, he was making nervous, and says "they are loosing 4-0 buddy" I had no choice, but to thank the guy. But I really wanted to punch him in the head.

After this episode I put on my Newport RI sweatshirt to avoid more grief.

After a little while we go over to a booth to check out some goods and I over hear the vendor say to a Yankee fan:

Vendor: so the mets are gonna make it today?
Yankee Fan: I hope not
V: Oh come on, we have to root for NY teams, right?
YF: Not really.
The vendor shoulda known better. It was obvious he wasn't from NY. I wanted to punch him in the head.
As we make our way out of the festival into the parking area, another "nice" gentleman pops out of his van window as he drives by and says:

Hey man, they are loosing 7-1. I acknowledge the guy with nod. I wanted to punch him in the head also.

So as you can see, I had a wonderful day at the Garlic Festival. Oh yeah, the food was excellent. I recommend you go to it next year. Just don't wear your NYM t-shirt if they are playing their last game of the season.

I told you so...

Thank God it's over. Now I can look forward to my psychiatric treatments and hopefully I can get better. For my family's sake.

Okay who's out? Let's start with:

Heilman, Ass**le
Delgado, Washed out
Green, Washed out
Schowenenweis, Looser
Randolph(?), His moments of greatness are outweighed by his dumb moves. I'm tired of hearing; "I have faith in my guys". If they can hit or pitch, sit them down Willie!!!!!!!!!!

Minaya, you are in limbo...I think you already know you have to do something impressive this off season.

Here, fishy, fishy...

So The Mets win 13-0? So what? I'm not falling for it. I'm warning you, Do NOT take the hook.
I'll be posting my bullpen wish list for next year soon.

Next year..

See, the messed up thing about not following other sports, other than baseball, is that when your team sucks and can't win an important game, you are relegated to watch old movies, cartoons or your generic shows, you know, Law and Order and such. I used to follow the Giants and Knicks. The last time I watched the Giants play I was still in college, that was in 1997.. and before that, Starks was still with the Knicks.. I watch people turned their heads and kinda forget about their baseball team when they are going bad. They just shift their attention to their football team. I can't do that. I can't listen to the "FAN". I can't watch ESPN or SNY. I just search for other entertainment on TV or just rely on the web.

Met fans know that if there's something good happenning murphy's law says that it won't last long and it will go downhill quickly, kinda like what the Mets are doing now, then do better then do shitty again. There's no consistency. That makes it worse I think. They keep you guessing.

I stopped watching the games almost three weeks ago. You know, when they got swept in Philly. Am I a bad fan for that? Okay, maybe. But I would be a good fan if my team was better. If they could get an out or a hit at that crucial moment.

You know, this was the first year that I started buying Mets memoribilia. I don't know if I'll stop buying stuff or not. But they are sure making it difficult for me to do so.

For now, I'm done watching and buying, until next year. Maybe.

Grannie sex

So for the past two weeks all met fans in the world have suffered to no end. Watching the mets lately has been like watching your grannie and your best pal having sex.

Pretty ugly. No?

The suffering has not ended yet, friends. Get ready for more "sticky" business. The phreaking phillies are not loosing and the mets are fiding ways to loose games (the f^king nationals just lost to the Phils).

I've been told to have faith. I'll have faith when the fucking bullpen does their job and the Mets get to the World Series.

Ps. Don't forget the tissues.

A beautiful date with the Mrs.

Game 6

June 24, 2007

Mets v Oakland A's

So the idea was to take my wife to the game and see Mike Piazza play at one more time. Unfortunately Mike was injured and did not play that day. It was allright though. The disspapointment had gone away in the first inning when Reyes hit a double and then scored on an error. Mets beat Oakland A's 10-2

A beautiful day all around. Also if you ever have a chance to visit Grand Central Station I garantee you that you will be amazed at the beauty of the architecture and also the cool market and shops within.

Will give blood for tickets

Game # 5

Mets v. Phillies April 11, 2007

So after donating some blood for the Red Cross we got free tickets to see the Mets. A bunch of coworkers from the P.O. took a trip to Flushing.

Oliver Perez imploded for like 6 walks in a row I think. The only good thing that night was the Hot Dogs, beer and company.
