« Theo Lays his Hancock on Contract | Main | Tito Turning Japanese, Welcome Dave Magadan, Goodbye Nelson de la Rosa »

October 20, 2006



I am depressed and most likely going to partake in mass consumption of alcholic beverages tonight. All are welcome to join me as I break out my Philadelphia Eagles hat for the first time this year.

How the Mets...a far superior team than any other NL team all manhandled by the shitty Cards pitching amazes and astounds me. Every naysayer wrote the Mets off for dead when they lost essentially their entire post season starting rotation. I said over and over again that the Mets win and lose with their bats and bullpen. Their bats (with the excpetion of 2 games) were horrendous and their bullpen lost 2 pivitol games (game 2 and game 7).

I tip my cap to Maine and Perez who nobody in the country (except Mets fans) could believe in and wrote the games off as Mets losses. I wish I could congratualate the Cards, but honestly I don't think I can. They shouldn't have been in that position to beat the Mets to begin with. But I guess it all comes back to the old sports cliche...they wanted it more.

Had the Mets showed up and hit like they were supposed to hit...meh...whatever....bitterness and another World Series in a long string that I could care less about. Who wants to get drunk?

Sorry man, I was pulling hard for your boys. My buddy Kris turned to me and was like, "I can't believe you're rooting so hard for the Mets?!?"

And told him how you supported the Sox and I and how it'd just be horrible karma if I rooted against your boys.

You have a good team, and a good GM. I see no reason why the Mets shouldn't have the opportunity to make it to the big dance for many years to come.

Go D-Nabb :-)

Chuck, you made some great points. You too Derek. If I were a Mets fan I also would be bothered by the same exact things. But a seven games series? Unpredictable as always. We'll see how the Tigers munch on dem Redbirds. Cats and birds...natural enemies in real life. And oh yes, I too was rooting for a Mets-Tigers World Series. Now united we stand, for the felines of Dee-troit. Enjoy!

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
