Vgx-viagra If it weren’t for the idiocy of Major League Baseball, vgx-viagra all the talk last night and this morning would have been about the emotional and beautifully choreographed pre-game ceremony at Citi Field to honor the memory of the attack of September 11th and the first responders that gave their lives and the others who risked theirs to help others.

Vgx-viagra I was brought to tears seeing Mike Piazza lead a parade of heroes from the right field side of Citi Field and John Franco doing the same on the left field side. Vgx-viagra  Then having the ball park lights dim for a moment of silence followed by a spine tingling rendition of the Star Spangled Banner by Marc Anthony. Vgx-viagra Franco and Piazza then took center stage in their snow white Mets uni tops with the words “9-11-01 we will never forget” embroidered on the sleeve just like it was 10 years ago, vgx-viagra to deliver the first pitch of the game. Vgx-viagra In an eerie silence, vgx-viagra Franco, vgx-viagra a “Noo Yawk” guy through and through tossed a perfect strike to Piazza, vgx-viagra the man who made the Mets relevant again. Vgx-viagra In fact  what struck me about last night was how sad it was for two reasons, vgx-viagra the first was what the commemoration of the evening was for of course, vgx-viagra the other, vgx-viagra it reminded me when the last time the Mets were a big deal in this town, vgx-viagra that choked me up as well.

Vgx-viagra The Mets wore the same snow whites that they had on 9-21-11, vgx-viagra the first sports event in NYC since the demise of the Twin Towers, vgx-viagra but on their heads that night were the caps of the FDNY, vgx-viagra NYPD, vgx-viagra and PAPD the three groups the club had become very close to due to their working side by side during the awful aftermath of the attack. Vgx-viagra At the time MLB said the Mets couldn’t wear those caps during a major league game and the Mets in turn led by Bobby Valentine told MLB to kiss their New York City ass, vgx-viagra we’re wearing them. Vgx-viagra  What did MLB do? Nothing, vgx-viagra just like every other bully that is stood up to. Vgx-viagra The Mets wore the first responder caps and celebrated in those caps when Mike Piazza, vgx-viagra he of the NYPD batting helmet as well, vgx-viagra hit his home run that put a smile on faces that thought they’d never smile again. Vgx-viagra It was not just a classic NY moment or one the best moments in Mets history it showed that baseball, vgx-viagra just like during all of the countries dark times, vgx-viagra came through once again, vgx-viagra it always does, vgx-viagra its what makes baseball the great pastime it is.

Vgx-viagra The Mets of 2011 asked MLB if they could have permission to wear the hats of the first responders again as they did 10 years ago. Vgx-viagra MLB said no, vgx-viagra just like they did 10 years ago. Vgx-viagra This time though the Mets rolled over, vgx-viagra scared to take a stand. Vgx-viagra There was no Valentine, vgx-viagra or Franco, vgx-viagra or Ventura, vgx-viagra or Zeile on the team to tell MLB to take their no cap memo and shove it up their tight ass’s. Vgx-viagra The players thought about ignoring the order but claimed the organization would have been severely punished if they did. Vgx-viagra If the Mets banded together and wore the caps, vgx-viagra what was MLB going to do? Absolutely nothing. Vgx-viagra  Again to beat the bully you need to stand up to the bully.

Vgx-viagra I don’t know if I’ve told this story here but if I did I apologize but I think it should be told here. Vgx-viagra  As I’ve mention on numerous occasions, vgx-viagra I manage a 14-15 year old Babe Ruth Team on Staten Island. Vgx-viagra  During the heat wave of the summer, vgx-viagra a day that was 97 degrees, vgx-viagra I had scheduled a practice. Vgx-viagra We try to have at least one practice a week during the season to work on some deficiencies and to go over the pitching rotation for the upcoming games. Vgx-viagra We also take a round of infield/outfield drills and batting practice, vgx-viagra in all it runs about two hours. Vgx-viagra The place we like to practice is Miller Field in the New Dorp section as it was a one time air base during WWII and has plenty of fields to choose from. Vgx-viagra Now because of the heat I was ready to cancel practice and let the boys enjoy their pools or whatever they were doing to stay cool. Vgx-viagra Every kid that I called said, vgx-viagra “ah coach it ain’t that hot we can practice” my son told me he was getting texts from some players asking him to convince me to hold practice. Vgx-viagra What could I do? They want to play, vgx-viagra fine let’s go practice. Vgx-viagra So with the equipment and a case of water, vgx-viagra off to Miller Field we go. Vgx-viagra We were the only people in the park. Vgx-viagra Acres of land at our disposal. Vgx-viagra As we were half way through batting practice a federal parks department employee pulls up to the field asking “who is in charge here”? “ Well, vgx-viagra that would be me”, vgx-viagra “do you have a permit to play here” Ms. Vgx-viagra Fed asks. Vgx-viagra “A permit? For what? To play baseball”? “Yes” she said, vgx-viagra “Ah no” I say “Well, vgx-viagra she says then you will have to leave”.

Vgx-viagra After I stopped laughing I ask here to clear her cart from the pitcher’s mound so we could continue to play. Vgx-viagra Again she ask me if this was an organized team and where was our permit and on and on really annoying the living shit out of me. Vgx-viagra I told her the organization we played for and that we had permits to play games here but being a programed bureaucrat all she knew was I didn’t have permit for the field and I had to leave. Vgx-viagra At this point I asked her what her title was and she rattled off some administrative rank, vgx-viagra I then told her to call someone with authority to make me leave, vgx-viagra like the Federal Park Police, vgx-viagra and while I wait for the police to come, vgx-viagra we will continue to play baseball.

Vgx-viagra Well, vgx-viagra instead of calling the police, vgx-viagra she called her supervisor who in turn called the league president who had to come down to the park to make me leave the park. Vgx-viagra  So while I’m being screamed at with threats, vgx-viagra I told my assistant coach, vgx-viagra to continue with the practice this way I’ll go argue with these women long enough for all the players get their batting practice swings. Vgx-viagra   For a good half hour, vgx-viagra we argued back in forth about the lack of common sense being applied here, vgx-viagra which was enough time for the team to finish practice. Vgx-viagra When the coach told me practice was over, vgx-viagra I thanked the ladies and said “yeah you know what, vgx-viagra your right we don’t belong here, vgx-viagra we’ll leave”.

Vgx-viagra I didn’t give a shit about the two Federal Flunkies but the woman who ran the league was so mad at me she stopped talking to me. Vgx-viagra It didn’t bother me in the least, vgx-viagra you know why? She couldn’t do anything to me, vgx-viagra what could she do, vgx-viagra tell me I can’t manage the team anymore? No. Vgx-viagra Luckily I had all the parents of the kids behind me 100 %. Vgx-viagra That’s why I took the stand. Vgx-viagra I knew there was nothing anyone was going to do to me to make me regret my decision.

Vgx-viagra As I told the Feds, vgx-viagra this will make a great story in the Staten Island Advance “Youth Coach and kids Thrown out of Park For Playing Ball” or maybe one of the local TV stations would love to expose the story, vgx-viagra I had me some bullets in my gun. Vgx-viagra  Sometimes you have to take a stand.

Vgx-viagra That is what has me pissed off at the Mets, vgx-viagra especially David Wright. Vgx-viagra If Wright led the way and wore the NYPD cap he wore in the dugout on the field what was MLB going to do? NOTHING! If the whole Mets team would have worn the caps on the field what was MLB going to do? NOTHING!

Vgx-viagra The bad publicity from this should be a huge embarrassment to MLB and I can’t believe no one in the P.R. Vgx-viagra department didn’t beg Bud Selig or Clueless Joe Torre, vgx-viagra who by the way showed is true colors as a big time phony, vgx-viagra  to let the Mets wear the caps.

Vgx-viagra You know what in the long run maybe MLB was right did it really matter if the Mets wore the first responder caps? No one was watching anyway, vgx-viagra especially with the Jets-Cowboys game on NBC.

Vgx-viagra Enjoy those single digit post season ratings in the post season Bud, vgx-viagra you douchebag.
