Where's The Love?

You know those shirts that say "I *heart* New York"? Well, I've never worn one of those and I probably never will. Most Midwesterners are tired of hearing about East Coast sports, since it takes up 90% of the airwaves. I guess the reasoning behind this is that the games end earlier, so sportswriters can actually watch them and turn their columns in at a decent time. Whatever the reason, I get tired of it. But not this time. Nope, I can talk about the Mets all the day long.
On September 12th, the Mets had a seven game lead on the Phillies. It was wrapped up; done. Now, they find themselves one back from the lead, and 1.5 games back from the Wild Card. They've lost five straight, including losing eleven of their last fifteen, all complete with a sweep at the hand of the Phillies during that stretch. Mmmm, playoff baseball, can you smell it? Though I'd like to go on, there's not much else to say, so I'll let the readers of do it for me:

game over…going to go kill myself now…goodbye boys

I am just glad my 6 month old triplets are too young to comprehend what has happened to the Mets. Though, they were all wearing their Mets baby-gear and crying hysterically today. It was eerie.

Done. See you in March.

what a joke of a team. what a joke of an organization.

is this really happening?

the players will be over it by monday morning. you’ll feel it all winter. they could careless about you. so don’t care about them

Actually, now that I think about it, I *heart* New York.
