Sorry Karl - This time there ARE words - EMOTIONAL and ECSTASY

Editor's Note: This post was written by MetsFanSZ. Please direct any comments or feedback to him. - Mike S. Met fans of our age, mine, Mike's, NostraDennis, and probably Gary Cohen, have many words that go with the occasion of the first REAL no-hitter in Mets history. We remember Karl...

SHEA MEMORIES: My Greatest Glorious Moment at Shea

Editor's Note: I'd like to welcome contributing writer MetsFanSZ back to the blog. Please direct any comments or feedback to him. - Mike S. Going to baseball games at Shea Stadium growing up, I saw many foul balls fly into the stands. We all saw fans with baseball gloves, bare...

Merely the Painfully Obvious

It's not helpful to be absurdly impatient. Baseball is a long season, and being two games under .500 in May is really meaningless. It's easy to call for the heads of Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya. Met fans, though, aren't so stupid. We merely notice the painfully obvious. Like re-signing...

Turn Up the Music

Is there any irony in the fact that we've been bemoaning our injuries this year, and the difficulty of making moves given the economic Madoff mess that affected the Mets. We're still chaffing over the last two years, and the disgraceful defense and fundamental baseball played by the, what should...

This Too Shall Pass

Thank heavens I'm only relegated to listening to the Washington National announcers for one more half inning. These two, Bob Carpenter and Rob Dibble, are such unabashed homers, it's pathetic. They are so completely unprofessional, I'm embarrassed to listen to them. Awful doesn't come close -- it's appropriate that they...

All-Star Reflections

There's a lot wrong with the world. Unemployment is rampant, up to 10% in my home state. Foreclosures are way up--people are losing their homes. Sitting outside a supermarket a few days, I listened to a man talking on a cell phone to his friend, talking about how he's lost...

Watching the Train Wreck in Slow Motion

There's no doubt that I should not be unemployed. The effect on our household income is serious. Even more serious, though, is that I'm watching more Mets games on television. This too is having a devastating effect on my psyche. This team, with their mortifying collapses the last two years,...

Thrown Out of Shea

Editor's Note: This is MetsFanSZ's first contribution to this site. - M.S. The demise of Shea Stadium this week evoked memories of Mets fans everywhere of great times at "our dump." Most likely centered around the miracle of 1969, perhaps Swoboda's fantasy diving catch or Cleon's genuflection on Davey Johnson's...
