I didn’t get to watch any of the Mets game last night. That has nothing to do with my recent “Mets games are boring” take, I actually taped the game and plan to watch the beginning tonight. Sometimes even the Mets Police have to work.
Anyway, I refer you to the best of the blogs (non-uniform division) for some quality reading about last night’s game.
I was starting to circle around the TeeVee, when Junior said, “Hey do you wanna watch the movie?”
I almost reflexively said no, then thought about how I’d spent most nights this week wishing these horrible 4 hour baseball games would end. I thought about my guilt of skipping a Pennant Race game, but decided to go for the movie.
We watched Civil War (much like the Mets, a bit of a mess and the best part is a kid from Queens) and then I checked in on the score. I caught the part where the game was going from 10-0 to 10-4 or whatever it was that allowed you guys to pretend they were going to come back.
I’m so glad I didn’t waste my time on that.
Then off to some video games (the wonderful mindlessness of No Man’s Sky). I see the Mets “almost came back” to lose 10-8.
Today the Mets take a 7th row behind all kinds of things like Outdoor Actvities and even the NFL if I get 5 minutes. Tomorrow, the debate is more interesting.
The Mets’ product might be 4th best in the NL, and it might be the best they can do right now, but it’s just a TV show and there are better things to do with my limited time right now. I can’t spend four hours watching Ty Kelly play baseball.
