Map The less said about last night’s game the better. Map However it is a testimony to Gary Gohen, map Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling that I kept the game on just to hear what the trio had to say. Map When they took phone calls and a caller asked “why is it the first baseman is left out when the ball is thrown around the horn” and Gary and Ron tried to find a good answer for that, map Hernandez gave a classic Keith Hernandez answer saying he didn’t know but he was glad he didn’t to be bothered being involved in the ritual when he played. Map It’s Keith world and we are all lucky to be living in it.

Map For all the bitching and moaning I do about the team and its management, map there are certain events that make me smile and appreciate being a Mets fan. Map Two things I read this morning showed me what being a Met and being a Mets fan is all about:

Map On this date in 1963 a rookie pitcher for the Mets by the name of Grover Powell, map beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 in his first major league start. Map In Powell’s next start he went up against the Pittsburgh Pirates and was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of future Mets 1969 hero, map Donn Clendenon. Map Powell never won another game in the big leagues again. But he did find fame and fortune as a childrens television performer.

Map Dave Singer of NY Sportsdog wrote a post today on why the Mets should honor the 30th anniversary of the 1979 team. Map This is why Mets fans are the greatest and funniest people on earth.

Map The Mets were 63-99 that year under the ownership of Madame` Lorinda de Roulet and the managerial leadership of one Joseph Torre . Map If you think this season is bad, map I got news for you kids, map if didn‘t live through that 1979 season you don’t know what suffering is. Map No one and  I mean no one went to Mets games in 1979 except for a bunch of 20 something’s who received plenty of free tickets and would go to games just hang out and drink beer and smoke a little herb (back then you sat in the Upper Deck with a bottle of booze and some smoke and just laughed your ass off, map awwwwwwww good times kids, map good times) It was back in ’79 when I nearly got my ass kicked by Crazy Horse (Tim Foli) as we walked down to seats behind the Mets dugout to break balls. Map Foli was on deck to pinch hit and I guess he got tired of me telling him how much he sucked, map that he came up to the rail screaming at me to shut the fuck up or he’d kick my ass, map in which I laughed at him some more and told him “if you feel froggy then leap asshole”, map pissing him off even more. Map As the rent-a-cops came running toward us to see what the commotion was, map my buddies and I thought that would be a good time to make a run for the exit and head back to Brooklyn.  

Map  

Map Funny thing was right after that incident, map Foli was dealt to the Pirates for Frankie Taveras. Map

Map Only 23 days until the New York Rangers go to camp. Map Unlike the Mets, map the Rangers are stocked with young talented players and The Prospect Park gives you the low down on the Baby Blushirts.
