This is going to be my last word on the Mets allowing two unqualified "personalities" to take over the radio booth for an entire game against second place Philadelphia. I've already adequately detailed why this bush-league promotional stunt bothered me so much, but I thought the way this day ended on WFAN summed up perfectly what was wrong with it in the first place.
I remembered that they were going to have a call-in show on WFAN after the game with by Jeff Wilpon and Dave Howard, hosted by Ed Coleman. I wondered what the fan reaction would be, and how many would find themselves as annoyed by this stunt as I was. I wanted to hear what the callers had to say.
I listened to the last hour of the show, and they were talking to various radio and television guys and other friends of the duo. Ed Coleman kept saying they would "try to take a few calls from the fans" -- it was just that so many much more important people, like that shameless money-grubbing traitorous whore Bill Parcells, had to weigh in on the festivities.
What I came to realize was that they had indeed come up with the perfect end for this whole day. They took the game away from the fans in a desperate attempt to suck up to the bloated egos of Mike and the Mad Dog. No one really stopped to consider how the fans felt about it, and in the end, no one cared what they had to say.
