I mean, I guess there are things to be thankful for. Like Livan Hernandez pitching a complete game. Gary Sheffield (with this three biggest proponents in attendance AND watching the game together there tonight) hitting a three-run jack that ensured NO instant replay would be needed. And David Wright is still together.
It was funny though. Looking at the lineup, you'd think there was a split-session game somewhere up North. Eh, but it wasn't. But good news for the Mets, they played a team that's perpetually AAAA.
Some notes on the evening:
I will post pics later, but Dykstraw noticed a dude wearing an old Pedro Martinez #45 jersey...with a new #26 etched out in butcher paper and colored blue with orange highlighting for the NEW Martinez on the team.
I still get recognized at the new stadium, no matter how little I attend these days. But unfortunately, someone called me "Co-Op." Nope, not kidding, Dykstraw will back me on it.
It's always a good thing when the bullpen stays in the bullpen.
The Corn on the Cob at Taqueria is the best thing ever. Don't ever go to the Catch of the Day stand. Seriously, don't. That way, there won't be lines like Shake Shack when you figure out that C-O-T-D has better fries than Shake Shack (whoops, I let the cat out of the bag).
Dykstraw advised me not to wait in line at Shake Shack, although I am still dy-ing for a black & white shake. He said, by the time you are done, F-mart will be in the Hall of Fame. Well, he may have been right. But that damn shake will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine.
What else? The Mets won and the Marlins cannot be counted on for shit against anyone BUT the Mets. Let's hope our team gets its shit together for the weekend series, and they continue to flounder (um, no pun intended).
Anyone want to use my Swiffa? With Johan on the mound tomorrow, it's a distinct possibility. SWEEP!
