"...step right up and beat the Mets!
Bring the kiddies, bring the wife
Guaranteed your share of tsuris for life,
Because the opposition's whacking that ball
Hitting those home runs over the wall
East side, west side, everybody's coming down
Because they can't get tickets to the Yanks in town..."

Mets fan on and off since 1967. :)

East side, west side, everybody's coming down
Because they can't get tickets to the Yanks in town..."

LOL! We've mangled those lyrics for years in my family - never thought of that one!

Welcome to Red Sox baseball pre-autumn-of-2004.

Or maybe it's just the curse of Brooks-bino.

AGG! Bite your tongue, JD. For the Brooks-curse reference, not the Red Sox one, to which I'm clinging.

I don't know. Brooksie knows people.

Ed Kranepool says to say hello. Jerry Martin did block the throw to first base in '69. The Mets did trade Nolan Ryan for Jim Fregosi. Was Ron really so Darling?

Oy. Added you to the blogroll. well you've yourself a ball club, The Mets of New York town. . . .


I finally left the Mets last year and spent the last year in a shelter for escaped Mets fans in an undisclosed location, but on Sunday night Mets Baseball found me, and boy, did it look hot, armed with two dozen roses, a beautiful diamond bracelet, Pedro's long, curly locks and Carlos' formidable biceps -- and I succumbed to its charms again, to the point where I engaged in a hot night of watching the WPIX "New Mets" promo program -- staying up too late just two days before having to drive 535 miles to North Carolina.

Then Mets Baseball beat the crap out of me again yesterday with this 7/6 loss, so it's back to the shelter I go. I think I'll keep going to those group sessions to find out why I keep believing Mets Baseball when it tells me it loves me and that this time it'll be different.

Jill we need a support group. Steve Summers, an announcer on WFAN (the flagship station of Mets baseball), who runs rehabs for fans after bad losses.

Heretik: mmmm ... Ed Kranepool. Thanks for the add to your blogroll.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
