my first trip to citifield

August 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

I went to my first ever Mets game at Citifield last night, and it was a good time, especially since the Mets broke a tie in the 8th and beat the Diamondbacks, 6-9. A lot of offense by both teams, including a beauty of a grand slam by Angel Pagan. And, as luck would have […]

My good friend Drew has a modest proposal.  It’s called Sports New Year’s Day. The idea came to me yesterday while trying to think of ways to avoid Valentines Day.

even in my dreams the NL loses

July 16th, 2008 · No Comments

Last night was the MLB All-Star Game, which the AL won 3-4 after 15 innings of battle. However, I only lasted until the 12th.  Well, more accurately, I lasted until the 9th, fell asleep, and woke up in the 12th and turned the TV off.  I proceeded to have at least two dreams about the […]

December 9th, 2007 · No Comments

Since I entered college I’ve been fortunate enough to have all three of my favorite teams (Rangers, Mets, and Giants) be division rivals with Philadelphia teams (Flyers, Phillies, and Eagles), so the teams I like are in town fairly often. While I’ve seen the Mets multiple times in Philadelphia, the Giants come to town only […]

Here in the UK, when referring to athletic completion, it’s not “sports”, but “sport”. Therefore, I will now drone on about sport. Mets – Today is judgment day. It’s the last day of the regular season, and their slide over the past couple of weeks has resulted in a potential four-way tie for the last […]
