CAT SCRATCH FEVER CIRCA 1969

Today marks the 39th anniversary of the Black Cat incident at Shea Stadium. While Ron Santo waited on deck for the Chicago Cubs, (I hated Santo’s guts when I was a kid as he did that stupid clicking of his heels when the Cubs won) The black cat went past Santo and into the Cubs dugout and looked Leo Durocher in the eye and let him know the Cubbies were doomed. The Mets won the game and the next game to go into first place and the rest as they say is history. If the Mets were creative they would have someone with a Black Cat take down the Shea Goodbye Countdown number tonight.

  1. I remember that Black Cat, quite well, and the Event of 9/10, when after defeating the Expos, Mets took over 1st Place in the NL East, marching to a World Series, winning it all.
