Viagra 50 mg What a great touch last night by SNY to show Gary Carter’s first game as a Met ( a game I attended), viagra 50 mg opening day 1985. Viagra 50 mg That game brought back a flood of memories about the era in Mets history and Carter’s legacy as a NY Met.

Viagra 50 mg I was at Madison Square Garden on the night of December 10th , viagra 50 mg 1984 watching the NY Rangers play the LA Kings, viagra 50 mg  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, viagra 50 mg 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, viagra 50 mg yes I’d indulged in all sorts of vice back in the day, viagra 50 mg 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, viagra 50 mg Mike Fitzgerald, viagra 50 mg Herm Winningham and Floyd Youmans. Viagra 50 mg HOLLLLLLYYYYY SHIT!

Viagra 50 mg As I made my way back up to Section 432, viagra 50 mg it seemed all the other degenerates checking scores and their bets, viagra 50 mg heard the Mets news as well as the Garden was buzzing. Viagra 50 mg There was great debate amongst myself and my friends over this deal. Viagra 50 mg At the time it looked like Frank Cashen gave up a King’s ransom for Carter. Viagra 50 mg Brooks was coming off a nice season with 16HR and 73 RBI, viagra 50 mg Fitzgerald, viagra 50 mg Wininngham and Youmans were top prospects in what was at the time a fruitful Mets farm system, viagra 50 mg but hey we got Gary Carter, viagra 50 mg add him to Keith Hernandez and the two kids, viagra 50 mg Gooden and Strawberry and god damn, viagra 50 mg the Mets are going to kick some serious ass in 1984, viagra 50 mg and they did, viagra 50 mg 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, viagra 50 mg yeah baby THE MAGIC WAS BACK AT SHEA)

Viagra 50 mg So many on the field memories, viagra 50 mg pop into my head when thinking of Gary Carter but so do many off the field ones as well.

Viagra 50 mg I got married in 1986 (same year I dropped two bad habits, viagra 50 mg gambling and smoking, viagra 50 mg drinking would come ten years later) the last of four kids to leave the nice secure nest my parent had made for us. Viagra 50 mg Most weeknights, viagra 50 mg I’d come from work have dinner with my parents (dinner always on the table when I got home, viagra 50 mg told you it tough leaving my happy habitat) and afterwards, viagra 50 mg head to the living room with my dad to watch Mets baseball.  My mother, viagra 50 mg a woman surrounded by sons, viagra 50 mg nephews and cousins who were sports fanatics, viagra 50 mg a woman who washed more uniforms than any clubhouse person, viagra 50 mg never cared for sports, viagra 50 mg that is until I move out of the house. Viagra 50 mg The sight of my old man sitting with no one to talk about the games with, viagra 50 mg she decided it was time to take up watching sports particularly Mets baseball. Viagra 50 mg  Not only did she start watching Mets games, viagra 50 mg she now wanted to go to Mets games, viagra 50 mg WHAT? “Ma, viagra 50 mg you want to go to Shea”  “Oh yes, viagra 50 mg I want to go see Gary Carter” So we took her to see “her guy” Gary Carter.

Viagra 50 mg I thought about that all the way on my commute home last night, viagra 50 mg then I listened to all the tributes for Carter and I really felt overwhelmed, viagra 50 mg Gary Carter was much more than a baseball player, viagra 50 mg he was as inspirational as anyone who has ever hit this city. Viagra 50 mg To hear Keith Hernandez weep when talking about Carter was heartbreaking. Viagra 50 mg Listening to Ron Darling speak of Carter you could tell he held him in such high regard. Viagra 50 mg Then I heard Doc Gooden, viagra 50 mg who told the story of how Carter would come to the Smithers Institute where he was residing to combat his drug and alcohol addiction, viagra 50 mg on Sunday’s after home games to make sure Gooden was okay. Viagra 50 mg 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”.

Viagra 50 mg Carter was at times mocked for his goody-goody ways, viagra 50 mg which some felt were phony but as they got to know him they found out his love of family, viagra 50 mg baseball and God was genuine. Viagra 50 mg 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, viagra 50 mg now in their middle age wish they could have had the life that Gary Carter had. Viagra 50 mg Don’t you wish we all could be remembered that way?
