There's No Winner in This One

October 26, 2009

I’m talking about the 2009 World Series of course. Sure, literally there’ll be a winner, but for myself and most Mets fans, there isn’t. Either way we’re screwed. If the Yankees win, we’ll hear about it day in and day out. Luckily I won’t have the New York papers reminding me of it daily, but […]

Chicago Mets Fan Went Home for a Weekend

June 29, 2008

Nik and I decided in late March to try for Pearl Jam tickets. We saw that they were playing in Hartford on a Friday night and the Mets were home at the same time, so we decided to make a weekend of it: see the concert, friends and family and a Mets game. The concert […]

Little Blue Pills

June 10, 2008

Who knew Roger Clemens took Viagra!? According to a report in the NY Daily News, the fat piece of poop was known to have some Viagra stashed away in his locker. In light of his recent sex-capades, and steroid denials, is this a shock? I guess not, but it still kind of is. Apparently, “off-label […]

Three Games, Two Days

April 23, 2008
Tags: , ,

I don’t think I’ve ever summed up two Mets games as bluntly as I’m about to: They lost them both. They arrived to town very early Monday, middle of the night early, and went on to lose two games to the Cubbies. To Ted Lilly, none the less! The only saving grace was to look […]

Horrible Idea!

March 10, 2008

I am a Mets fan first and foremost! I am now a transplanted Connecticuter (?), New Yorker and Mets fan living in Chicago. I have embraced the history of Wrigley Field and the resurging Blackhawks, but I still miss a few things about NYC… However, an outdoor ice hockey game at Yankee Stadium? Are you […]

Covering the Bases

February 20, 2008

Just a few thoughts I’ve been meaning to post and I’m finally getting to it: Cubbies tickets go on sale Friday. As I previously wrote, the Mets are here for two games on April 21st and April 22nd. Can we say what boring timing? I would’ve loved a warm summer weekend again. Some friends at […]

What Others Are Saying on Mitchell Report…

December 14, 2007

A few comments I found from around the world of other Mets related websites: Blastings! Thrilledge: “Baseball should just clear everyone who has done steroids in the past and institute a new policy or something. We’re not really interested in the names, as we suspect that many and various MLB players used steroids or HGH […]

Mitchell Report Released

December 13, 2007

Senator George Mitchell’s report to Major League Baseball has been presented. It seems the two main sources of information are former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski and Brian McNamee, Roger Clemens’ personal trainer and a former Yankees’ employee who has also worked with Andy Pettitte. While myself and others believe there are a […]

This and That

October 30, 2007

Came across a nice article at NHL.com about the career paths Chris Drury and Tom Glavine took. Both guys are from the New England area and both played baseball and hockey while growing up. And they both played them well. To summarize: Glavine got drafted by the Atlanta Braves and the LA Kings. Drury’s fate […]
