Countdown to opening day 2015: days hrs min sec

Enjoy It While It Lasts

The Mets are a mess and it’s my fault. This year I have watched 4 Mets games live (as opposed to watching on DVR or just highlights on various sportscasts). Three of those games are the Mets 3 losses so far on the season. In the fourth game the Mets were losing while I watched […]



Phillies Fan Purposely Vomits on Girl

The feel good moment at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia captured in my previous post is overshadowed by this story from the previous game. Follow the link for details but this is the crux of the story: “I actually heard the individual behind me say, ‘I’m gonna get sick’, then I couldn’t believe what I […]



Have a Foul Ball, Son

I don’t have to like the Phillies but I have to like this guy. David S. Cohen, who writes The Good Phight blog about the Phillies, took his son to yesterday’s Phillies game against the Nationals. After explaining foul balls to the 4 year old here’s what happened: As a dad I appreciate moments like […]



Why Aren’t Mets Commercials This Good?

Real Job

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately. My real job has been keeping me really busy. Big project. Aggressive deadline. Argh!



Minaya And Randolph Relationship

Looks like there may be some tension in Metsville between manger Willie Randolph and general manager Omar Minaya. While serving up food at the Bowery Mission yesterday Randolph was asked about the tams catching situation and Paul Lo Duca in particualr. His response: “I’m only the manager, not and the general manager and this is […]



Countdown Timer Bug Fix

No it wasn’t wishful thinking. A bug was responsible for the opening day countdown timer at the top of the page saying that there was 68 days to opening day when it should have said 168. I have fixed that bug now and the timer is as close to accurate as I can make it. […]
