Buy Cheap Purchase Uk Viagra

Recreational viagra use What a great touch last night by SNY to show Gary Carter’s first game as a Met ( a game I attended), recreational viagra use opening day 1985. Recreational viagra use That game brought back a flood of memories about the era in Mets history and Carter’s legacy as a NY Met.

Recreational viagra use I was at Madison Square Garden on the night of December 10th , recreational viagra use 1984 watching the NY Rangers play the LA Kings, recreational viagra use  between periods I strolled down to the concourse to grab a beer (my drinking days) and call Sports Phone  (once upon a time this great new service came out called SportsPhone known by its great jingle  “get all the sports scores in-stan-leeee dial 976-1313) to get some out of town NHL and NBA scores (this was also my gambling days, recreational viagra use oh and along with the beer in my hand and the phone receiver to my ear there was a cigarette dangling from the corner of my mouth, recreational viagra use yes I’d indulged in all sorts of vice back in the day, recreational viagra use that why I loved the 1970’s and 80’s) came a voice on the other end of the line telling me that the New York Mets have acquired Gary Carter from the Montreal Expos for Hubie Brooks, recreational viagra use Mike Fitzgerald, recreational viagra use Herm Winningham and Floyd Youmans. Recreational viagra use HOLLLLLLYYYYY SHIT!

Recreational viagra use As I made my way back up to Section 432, recreational viagra use it seemed all the other degenerates checking scores and their bets, recreational viagra use heard the Mets news as well as the Garden was buzzing. Recreational viagra use There was great debate amongst myself and my friends over this deal. Recreational viagra use At the time it looked like Frank Cashen gave up a King’s ransom for Carter. Recreational viagra use Brooks was coming off a nice season with 16HR and 73 RBI, recreational viagra use Fitzgerald, recreational viagra use Wininngham and Youmans were top prospects in what was at the time a fruitful Mets farm system, recreational viagra use but hey we got Gary Carter, recreational viagra use add him to Keith Hernandez and the two kids, recreational viagra use Gooden and Strawberry and god damn, recreational viagra use the Mets are going to kick some serious ass in 1984, recreational viagra use and they did, recreational viagra use going from 68-94 in 1983 to 90-72 in 1984 finishing 6 ½ games back of the division champion Chicago Cubs (somewhere in my basement is my florescent yellow CUBS BUSTERS t-shirt that had the bear cub in a circle with a red line through it, recreational viagra use yeah baby THE MAGIC WAS BACK AT SHEA)

Recreational viagra use So many on the field memories, recreational viagra use pop into my head when thinking of Gary Carter but so do many off the field ones as well.

Recreational viagra use I got married in 1986 (same year I dropped two bad habits, recreational viagra use gambling and smoking, recreational viagra use drinking would come ten years later) the last of four kids to leave the nice secure nest my parent had made for us. Recreational viagra use Most weeknights, recreational viagra use I’d come from work have dinner with my parents (dinner always on the table when I got home, recreational viagra use told you it tough leaving my happy habitat) and afterwards, recreational viagra use head to the living room with my dad to watch Mets baseball.  My mother, recreational viagra use a woman surrounded by sons, recreational viagra use nephews and cousins who were sports fanatics, recreational viagra use a woman who washed more uniforms than any clubhouse person, recreational viagra use never cared for sports, recreational viagra use that is until I move out of the house. Recreational viagra use The sight of my old man sitting with no one to talk about the games with, recreational viagra use she decided it was time to take up watching sports particularly Mets baseball. Recreational viagra use  Not only did she start watching Mets games, recreational viagra use she now wanted to go to Mets games, recreational viagra use WHAT? “Ma, recreational viagra use you want to go to Shea”  “Oh yes, recreational viagra use I want to go see Gary Carter” So we took her to see “her guy” Gary Carter.

Recreational viagra use I thought about that all the way on my commute home last night, recreational viagra use then I listened to all the tributes for Carter and I really felt overwhelmed, recreational viagra use Gary Carter was much more than a baseball player, recreational viagra use he was as inspirational as anyone who has ever hit this city. Recreational viagra use To hear Keith Hernandez weep when talking about Carter was heartbreaking. Recreational viagra use Listening to Ron Darling speak of Carter you could tell he held him in such high regard. Recreational viagra use Then I heard Doc Gooden, recreational viagra use who told the story of how Carter would come to the Smithers Institute where he was residing to combat his drug and alcohol addiction, recreational viagra use on Sunday’s after home games to make sure Gooden was okay. Recreational viagra use Strawberry may have given Carter the best compliment anyone can give to another human being when he said that Carter “lived his life the way I wish I could have”.

Recreational viagra use Carter was at times mocked for his goody-goody ways, recreational viagra use which some felt were phony but as they got to know him they found out his love of family, recreational viagra use baseball and God was genuine. Recreational viagra use I found it stunning that those four players who played hard and partied even harder in their youth and would ridicule Carter for his clean living ways back then, recreational viagra use now in their middle age wish they could have had the life that Gary Carter had. Recreational viagra use Don’t you wish we all could be remembered that way?
