Mets Are Grand in Finale

June 28, 2012

Wednesday’s Mets game is why I, and I’m sure many others, have stayed loyal to the Mets. Each game is a new one and you never know what to expect. I was being questioned if I was going to go to the final game of this Mets-Cubs series. Of course I was! It was never […]

Tired, Sloppy Play Leads to Loss

June 26, 2012

It seems that over the last few years whenever the Mets come to Chicago to play the Cubs, they always struggle. Monday’s opener in the series was no different. The team arrived to Chicago at 4am following their Sunday night game in New York against the Yankees. I’m sure the Mets were dealing with the […]

Mets-Cubs Pre-game Meetups

June 24, 2012

Monday is the day. The day the Mets open a three-game series at Wrigley Field and I will be at each game. Like years past, I encourage Mets fans to gather before the games. The locations I’m thinking: Monday – Murphy’s BleachersĀ at the corner of Sheffield and Waveland Tuesday – Dark Horse Tap and Grille […]

Mets vs. Cubs + The Cold = A Loss

May 27, 2011

Game 3 of the Mets/Cubs series was by the far the coldest. I even had to break out long underwear. TMI? Once again, Nik and I were supposed to be in the 400’s but we sat in some empty seats on the 200 level and had a great view of everything, even R.A. Dickey tripping […]

Mets Win Rain-Shortened Game

May 27, 2011

The second game of the Mets/Cubs series was only better than game one because the Mets won. The weather was colder, our seats were under cover (section 223ish), but then the rain came and the game was called in the bottom of the 7th giving the Mets a 7-4 win. Dillon Gee had a rough […]

Mets Lose Wrigley Opener

May 25, 2011

My day started off really well with employee appreciate week at work and an air hockey table temporarily brought in. From work I went and met up with some other Mets fans at Merkle’s before the game. The sun was still out, but I knew it was going to get cold. I just didn’t expect […]

2011 Baseball Schedules are Out!

September 15, 2010

There are many jokes to be made about how long this Mets season has been over. But I’ll leave those for other people to make. I want to look ahead to the games and series that I’m looking forward to most in 2011. In order of date: April 8 – The Mets home opener vs. […]

My Weekend at Wrigley Field for Mets/Cubs

September 6, 2010

No matter how good or bad the Mets might be playing, I always look forward to their games against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. It’s the one time of year that I don’t have to travel out of town to see them play. This year is a little different in that both teams are playing […]

That's a Wrap!

October 5, 2009

I wish I could be more creative with this title, but I got nothing. Kinda like the Mets when they got swept by the Nats! Anway, I’m not gonna dwell. The Mets ended the season at home on a winning note and that’s all we could have asked for…for the last two seasons! For me, […]

Mets vs. Cubs – Games 2 & 3

August 30, 2009

Saturday started out with pre-game festivities at Merkle’s. There were a bunch of Mets fans that came into the bar and it was great. Definitely met some nice people, both from here and from out of town. The game itself, was just another one to forget about. I did have great seats for both games, […]
