Yeesh! I’m still recovering from the craziness that was last night’s slate of baseball games. But since there are better recaps than mine, I will just stick to one main point and a few little ancillary pointettes. Since 2007 I have had to live with the ignominy of being a Mets fan. The Mets if you remember (I sure do!) is the franchise of the historic late season collapse of 2007 which subjected the franchise and the fan base amazing amounts of ridicule. However, thanks to the Braves and the Red Sox even bigger and even more pathetic collapse, which culminated yesterday, Mets fans and the franchise are off the hook. I would like to thank everyone who made this possible especially the entire Red Sox and Braves organizations. Thank you for having a worse collapse than my poor, poor Mets. The lackluster baseball I have seen both those teams play this last month has made my memories of ’07 Mets seem like the ’27 Yankees. It’s even sweeter since the Red Sox spent around 5 gazillion dollars last offseason and still managed to blow a 9 game lead. Also special thanks to Jonathan Papelbon. Thanks for blowing the game. If anyone deserves the shame that you feel right now it’s you. Papsmear you are truly one of the biggest douches in baseball.
Most of all, however, I’d also like to thank Evan Longoria (my man crush beeteedubs) for the walk-off homer that completed the Red Sox failure.
Oh yah and the icing on the cake is that Reyes won the batting title yesterday for the first time in franchise history. Fuck the haters, most players do what Reyes did so stop comparing everyone to fucking Derek Jeter and Teddy Ballgame.
PS to all my friends who are Sox fans: Sorry you are just going to have to suck it up and deal with all the shit talking. I’ve heard and taken a bunch of shit from all of you over the Mets. Now it’s your turn.
PPS to Frank McCourt: Thanks for being an even shittier owner than the Wilpon’s.
