LET’S DRINK TO JOSE REYES AT FOLEY’S NY

So what do you do with that REYES 7 you won’t be wearing to Citi Field anymore? Well, you can bring it to Foley’s NY and exchange it for a beer or an appetizer (or champagne if your happy he’s gone) Here is the info :

Foley’s NY Pub & Restaurant (18 W. 33rdSt.) offers New York Mets fans the opportunity to bid adios to former shortstop Jose Reyes, who has signed with the Miami Marlins.   The popular baseball bar will allow customers to exchange their Mets #7 Reyes jerseys for a free beer (to drown their sorrows), champagne (to celebrate his departure) or free appetizer (for fans who do not drink).

 

 “New York baseball is feeling a swirl of emotions as Jose Reyes heads south this winter,  We’re giving Mets fans a chance to drown their sorrows — or celebrate — and bid adios to Jose, one of the best and most popular Mets players ever,” said Shaun Clancy, owner of Foley’s, which features 2,500 autographed balls, bats and other baseball memorabilia.  “By doing this, we can have a little fun and donate to clothing drives for people who are less fortunate.”

WOULD BOBBY VALENTINE COME BACK TO THE METS? HE WON’T RULE IT OUT

Bobby Valentine was at an event at the Japan Society in Manhattan last week and as always with Bobby V, gave some provocative answers during a Q & A session. When asked about a return to manage the Mets BV had this to say:

 Valentine fielded questions about managing the Metsagain (“It’s not as though you don’t go back to the girl that dumped you, but it takes a little while, it takes a little convincing . . .”) and what the Mets need to do to be successful in the 2010 season (“They need to stay healthy, but I like their talent.”)

So Bobby wants to be wooed a bit by the Mets, if that’s the case Freddy Skill Sets should be jumping in limo with Jay Horowitz driving, with flowers, chocolates and champagne, ready to pitch his best woo.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEW YORK METS

 

 

Lift a Rheingold today Mets fans it’s our brithday:

The new National League entry is New York is officially named the “Mets.” Not Metropolitans, just Mets. At a ceremony at the Savoy Hilton, owner Joan Payson swings a bottle of champagne and after three unsuccessful whacks turns the job over to a waiter who uses a bottle opener. The “Mets” was the choice among the 10 finalists: Continentals, Burros, Mets, Skyliners, Skyscrapers, Bees, Rebels, NYBs, Avengers, and Jets. The original list was 644 names from 9,613 suggestions. The Metropolitans nickname had been used by the New York American Association team in the 1880s.

DOUSE ME BABY, I MADE THE 7AM FERRY!

When did winning a playoff series turn into an all night celebration? All these champagne and beer baths after the Division Series is a bit much. Look, I can see the Tampa Bay Rays going nuts after beating the White Sox as losings ones virginity is a cause to celebrate but the Dodgers, Red Sox, and the Phucking Phillies? Com’on you guys know you’re better than that? Yeah, yeah I know you think it’s sour grapes on a Mets fan part as we are still kept behind the velvet rope of post season baseball but it’s not we gotten over it (I think we have?) but with the wild celebrations after a first round win what do you guys do if you win the World Series? Make a snuff film?
