Baseball Rules


Meet Mr. Met, the dopiest mascot ever.

Even though my history with the Mets means that I can never love them, or even like them, this is still a prettty good bit of baseball writing. And I do so love baseball.

You're right. That is so lame. If Mets ever want to be taken seriously, they should look to the current world champ for some inspiration:)

Shea Stadium? Worst. Stadium. Ever. You need look no further than its address: Flushing, New York.

Well I am sorry, but Mr. Met is not *nearly* so studly as the Frederick Keyote. I lost my heart to the Keyote a few years back when we started taking the boys to Keys games here. It's still one of the best deals around - they have a great fireworks show after the game most nights and you can see it from my deck out back.

Still haven't managed to get my picture taken with him, but I am working on it this season.

I will have to get all dolled up next game and try my luck down on the field.

That's the very first I have ever heard of "Wally The Green Monster."
Pathetic.

Did you ever wonder where these knuckleheads learn to do their schtick?
Here.

OT: Kudos to Kimi! Great drive.

You can't be faulted for not knowing about him, he's been in hiding for most of his life...yours, too.
Now for today's trivia question Mr. Red Sox Encyclopedia, who is his namesake? Here's a hint: He was a pitcher. No cheating:)

Damn. Try this link instead.

I give up! The link opens correctly in the preview pane. Oh well, more messages for you to read:)

Who is "Wally's" namesake?
Wally Backman? (Heh).

portia said...

Heh. Noooooo.
Two more guesses spd-meister, and then you have to kiss my Yankee- loving toes. You better pray you know another Wally:)

spd rdr said...

Wally Cleaver?

portia said...

Nail polish or buff?

spd rdr said...

Wally Masterson.
Yeah I cheated.
Kiss your own toes, Yankee.

portia said...

Heh. Thanks for the suggestion but someone else has first dibs:)
Cheers
