Mets/World Series game watch info

October 27, 2015

If you don’t already know by now, Racine Plumbing in Chicago is the place to be for Mets World Series games. Many thanks to Eddie for all his efforts in helping to arrange this. You will notice one difference for Game 4 due to a conflict with Notre Dame Football: World Series Schedule* Game 1: Tuesday 10/27/2015 […]


Mets Game Watches 2012

April 9, 2012

I’m trying something new this season by picking one Sunday a month for a game watch. This way, people can have it on the calendar now and if you can make it, great. If not, no big deal either. I think trying to plan ahead of time might get more turn out than a last […]


Mets Home Opener…in Chicago!

April 14, 2009

While we didn’t have the hoopla of a new stadium to watch the game in, we did have a bar in Cubs-land that hung a Mets pennant. Thank you Finley Dunne’s: A nice group of Chicago Mets Fans gathered at Finley Dunne’s for the game. We watched in their back room with a few HD […]


Heat of the Moment Rant

July 22, 2008

So the Mets lost tonight. They shouldn’t have though. Johan pitched a great game and the rest of the team supported him. He just can’t get a break from the bullpen, who I blame for this one. Not Jerry Manuel, or even Billy Wagner, who I’m sure is going to get grilled about not being […]


Mets vs. Yanks Game Watch

May 13, 2008

Hey Chicago Mets fans and others stopping by… I’m planning a Mets game watch for Friday, May 16 at Finley Dunne’s. It’s the first Subway Series game of the season and our million dollar man Santana is set to start the game. Come on out!


Mets Game-Watch Friday April 4

April 2, 2008

For anyone who’s reading this and not on my email list, I’m organizing a Mets game-watch this Friday at Finley Dunne’s – 3458 N. Lincoln Avenue, just off the Addison Brown Line stop. The Mets will face the Braves at 6:30pm, local time. Come on out and cheer our boys and boo the Braves!


8 Days…

March 21, 2008

…Till the Mets play in Memphis, however, it’s 6 days till we leave and hit the road to get there. So as I catch today’s afternoon game against the Nationals on SNY, the first thought that came to me was when I saw Paul Lo Duca in his strange new uniform.  He’s making his first […]


A Night in Pictures

September 7, 2007

Tonight Nik and I had a game-time decision – to get the MLB Extra Innings package at a pro-rated price. It turned out to be a wise decision because a) we’ll save some money by staying in and eating our own food and drinking our drinks and b) most importantly, it was the first Mets […]


Wild Night at Shea

August 24, 2007

After waiting out two waves of torrential downpours in our neighborhood, a few of us headed to Finley Dunne’s to meet some other Mets fans and catch the rest of the Mets/Padres game. It was 6-1 Padres when we got there…Tom Glavine started and ended with a no decision. In the top of the 6th, […]


I Missed history

August 6, 2007

I don’t remember which came first, buying the Lollapalooza 3-day pass or the MLB schedules being released. But it was unfortunate for me that the Mets/Cubs series in Chicago coincided with Lollapalooza which was being headlined by Pearl Jam. Luckily though, Friday’s game was an afternoon game so I was able to see Ben Harper, […]
