Viagra doses Boy, viagra doses did we ever need that? In what has become one of the worst season’s on and off the field in the history of the NY Mets, viagra doses last night had to prove to the Skill Sets that, viagra doses yes we have a history and an outstanding one at that.

Viagra doses I was 11 years old (same as Gary Cohen) when the Mets became World Champions. Viagra doses You see all the negativism and anger from this current Mets fans base? Well now picture the complete opposite of that and you have the feel for what it was like around here in 1969.

Viagra doses Think of this for the first time in the history of newspapers the NY Daily News ran a COLOR front page just for the Mets. Viagra doses The news also sold buttons with GO METS on them and every Sunday had portraits of Mets players as inserts in the paper. Viagra doses Channel 9 the TV home of the Mets showed just about every game and all the games were on radio (WJRZ 970 AM) and Lindsey Nelson, viagra doses Bob Murphy and Ralph Kiner were the guys we brought into our homes for every game.

Viagra doses The Mets were not just the talk of NY but of the whole country they were truly America’s team. Viagra doses This was an organization that was looked at as loveable losers until the Quiet Man took over and put an end to that kind of thinking. Viagra doses It was Gil Hodges who set the tone for the club. Viagra doses As Mets fans we all know of the love and devotion that Tom Seaver had for Hodges, viagra doses not an appearance goes by when The Franchise doesn’t invoke the name of Hodges his stories. Viagra doses But the most told story about Hodges and his team always is about him taking out Cleon Jones during a game against the Astros on July 30 1969 for lack of hustle.

Viagra doses During his time on the SNY broadcast, viagra doses Jones told that the only Hodges and he knew what really happened that day. Viagra doses Jones went on to say how Hodges didn’t yell or scream or get in his face he just told Jones that we can’t play like this if were going to win  and Jones realized right there that is wasn’t business as usual for the Mets. Viagra doses Hodges meant what he said in spring training that the loser mentality stops here and now and Jones knew after getting lifted from that game that the team was destined to win.

Viagra doses Some observation from last night’s ceremony:

Viagra doses I love how Eddie Yost came out and was still giving signs, viagra doses and leave it to Howie Rose to remember that Lindsey Nelson would always say “and Eddie Yost, viagra doses the sign man is coaching at third base…….”

Viagra doses Wayne Garret and Gary Gentry must have found the fountain of youth, viagra doses both guys look like they could still play.

Viagra doses You know you’re an old time Mets fan, viagra doses when you not only can recognize Duffy Dyer but your happy as hell to see him.

Viagra doses Here is the legacy of Yogi Berra, viagra doses he is the only man other than the Pope who could get a standing ovation in both Highlander Stadium and $iti Field.

Viagra doses I loved how the music of 1969 was intertwined with the introduction of the players but I wish SNY would have left the cameras on the players instead of showing videos of them in their playing day. Viagra doses It’s called capture the moment fellas’

Viagra doses The biggest ovations of the night were for Bob Murphy’s widow and for Ralph Kiner and rightfully so.

Viagra doses I don’t I have ever seen Jerry Grote look so happy as he did last night. Viagra doses I wish he was with the Mets in some capacity as that is what the organization misses an Grote like mentality. Viagra doses I still can see him throwing back a ball to the pitcher at about 95 mph when he was pissed off at him for either crossing him up or not hitting his spot and non of the pitchers ever challenging him.

Viagra doses I’m glad Gary Cohen mentioned Ken Boswell not being there and not being acknowledged on the field. Viagra doses It seems Boswell had a falling out with the organization an declined the invitation to come. Viagra doses This is where the Skill Sets are absolutely clue less. Viagra doses With their track history, viagra doses the Skill Sets are probably at fault here and should have made amends with Boswell to get him last nights ceremony. Viagra doses Boswell too should not be so cranky as to snub this reunion as I’m sure he feels hurt that the Mets treated him wrong (join the club Kenny) but he may regret it for a long time not being at $iti Field last night.

Viagra doses As it was in the beginning, viagra doses is now and ever shall be, viagra doses Tom Seaver is THE FRANCHISE!!!!

Viagra doses There may be no more underrated sports performer in this town than Jerry Koosman. Viagra doses The chant back then was “We can’t loose with Seaver and Kooz”
