Always remember that if you follow an ugly person home and even uglier person answers the door ;) BTW, my wife is beautiful. This is a saying I heard!

Mets managed to win a game that deGrom started. He had another great effort last night. And, the Mets have now won 3 in a row! 7 more like that and they are back to .500.

:cry:
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

I had the Nationals-Yankees game on last night and Bryce Harper looked totally lost at the plate. I know he has a lot of HRs and RBIs, but his BA is rapidly approaching the Mendoza Line.

A Phillies fan had to be taken to the ER after being hit in the face with a hot dog shot from the Phanatics hot-dog cannon.

Seriously.

The concept of baseball mascots was originally conceived by Satan. People forget that.

Seriously.


That collective howl you heard wasn't the poor woman screaming in pain. It was all the trial lawyers in the Delaware Valley crying their eyes out over her saying she has no plans to sue.

With that said, I went to a Spurs game in Ssn Antonio a few years ago. We got seats two rows from the top. Anyway, during a break in the action the guy with the t-shirt cannon came onto the court. Not thinking the t-shirts could reach us I went into daydream mode. Next thing you know I felt this THUMP in my lap. The thump, a t-shirt landing right in my lap, caused me to spill my beer all over my jeans and flip flops, causing my feet to get all wet and sticky. At least I got a free t-shirt though. 8-)

Personally I think Mr. Met should be put before the firing squad. You know, the fella who flipped the bird to his own fans?

Otherwise I enjoy mascots. Really, how can anyone hate the Phillie Phanatic or Swoop?

Him, I might give a pass.

It's not the mascots and other non-stop nonsense that transpires during a modern baseball game, per se. It's what it represents, i.e., the severely diminished attention span of the American public, God forbid you should just talk about the game between innings. Without the constant stimulation of blaring music, kiss-cam videos and hot dogs launched at your face by a bazooka, one might slip into a coma. Can't have that.

Reports out that David Wright has resumed "baseball activities". That gives him a leg up on the rest of the team.

Are the Mets going to win another game this year? Good grief.
