The Season's Over

So, it's 2pm and at work and I'm thinking about Santana's debut. I get on the super secured computer at work and check out the score risking a reprimand from my superiors for checking out yahoo sports instead of work related stuff.

I see Cardinals 3 Mets 0... and it's only the first inning. WTF!!

I have one word ... trade Santana! okay, okay, it's too early to commit suicide. But it was

surprising to see Juan Gonzales hit a HR off Santana. Leave it to the f_ _ _ _ _ _ Cardinals to find freaks like Gonzales. I mean, the guy is like 58 years old, right? Right??? ..okay, so is El Duque. I just hope Gonzales fizzles so he doesn't come to haunt us late in the season.

Now, for some funky ass met hair!

Baseball Heaven

Last weekend my wife and I decided to go to Cooperstown, NY. It was to be our early Valentine getaway. She wanted to look for Chocolate shops, Antiques and Wool (she's into spinning wool). I just wanted to visit the HOF and the baseball shops. I bought the last Mets watch at the HOF and the last John Franco Cancelled Postcard at a pretty cool shop that has been in cooperstown for forty years, run by the same sweet lady. We braved the elements and we were happy we did. The snow and high winds and the white out conditions couldn't stop us from having a great weekend. It was probably as cool as my honeymoon. Except this time we had our kids with us. Which was in itself a learning experience for my 5 yr old girl.

When I stepped into the HOF I had a feeling that I was stepping into baseball heaven. It was the most calming yet exciting feeling. I could almost see a glow of light surrounding the HOF. It was truly amazin'.

Seeing the plaques of the inductees was my favorite part. I was afraid that someone was going to tell me that my time was up. I wanted to look at every single one. But the one I was really looking for, all along, was Tom Seaver's. A person who meant so much the the Mets organization. Someone who carried himself as a blue collar guy. In my eyes, this guy was everything my father said to be like. A solid individual all around.
Seaver will be the person I'll telling my son about when he grows up. His principles and hard work are exemplary.

Here's more on Tom Seaver, courtesy of wikipedia:

Seaver was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on January 7, 1992. He received the highest-ever percentage of votes with 425 of 430 ballots (98.84%), surpassing Ty Cobb's 98.23%, and falling just five votes short of an unanimous selection. Seaver is the only player enshrined in the Hall of Fame with a Mets cap on his plaque.
Seaver was inducted into the New York Mets Hall of Fame in 1992, the Marine Corps Sports Hall of Fame in 2003 and the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in 2006.
In 1999, Seaver ranked 16th on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, the only player to have spent a majority of his career with the Mets to make the list. That year, he was also a nominee for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. Baseball purists often compare him to Christy Mathewson for his combination of raw power, pinpoint control, intelligence, and, perhaps most of all, an intense scrutiny of his own performance, as well as that of his opponents. An excellent hitting pitcher, Seaver hit 12 home runs during his career.
Hank Aaron stated that Seaver was the toughest pitcher he ever faced. Ironically, Seaver approached Aaron before his first All-Star Game in 1967 and asked Aaron for his autograph. Seaver felt the need to introduce himself to Aaron, as he was certain "Hammerin' Hank" would not know who he was. Aaron replied to Seaver, "Kid, I know who you are, and before your career is over, I guarantee you everyone in this stadium will, too."
In an ESPN poll among his peers, Bob Gibson, Juan Marichal, Jim Palmer, Nolan Ryan, Steve Carlton, Bert Blyleven, and Don Sutton all agreed Seaver was "the best" of their generation of pitchers.
On September 28, 2006, Seaver was chosen as the "Hometown Hero" for the Mets franchise by ESPN. I can't wait until we get back to Cooperstown. The small town happens to be only 2 hours from my home, so it will be easy for us to go back. And if you ever stop in Cooperstown. On your way back make left on RT 7 west (off Rt28) and stay on it for about 10 mins and you will see Brooks BBQ. It's only the best BBQ on earth. It will be the perfect ending to a perfect trip! :-)

I miss Imus

Am I the only one that thinks the WFAN morning shows blows chunks? I mean, can't we have Chris Carlin or the Schmooze on the AM...? I mean, give me Boomer by himself. I'll take that for godsakes. This Carton guy thinks he's funny and he's not. He tries too hard and he thinks he knows everyone in the world of sports. WTF was Chernoff thinking about? I mean, I know it was a tall order to replace Imus but geez.. This guy simply sucks and is abnoxious to boot....all he talks about is where he's been who he knows and blah blah blah... FUCK!!!!! it ruins my morning commute. I'll rather listen to the annoying ESPN idiots!
I swear Boomer is gonna bitch slap him one of these days.

The party never stops

So is not only square head Clemens that has been enjoying the B12 shots. Now, as it turns out, it's also the wife? Excuse me, but WTF!!!!!!!!!!!

Are these people nuts? Whatever happened to injecting yourself with good old fashion guacamole cream and preparation H for the wrinkles? Why HGH?

I bet McNamee has needles and videotapes of Rogers kids eating HGH with their cereal.

Hmmmm Only time will tell. In the mean time, let's just enjoy the show.
