I sat down last night to write today’s lead-off article and had no idea where I was going to head. Mrs. Mets Police was out which meant no dinner, so I busted out some Lucky Charms (they of the borderline racist logo – I mean at least it sort of makes sense that their guy is a leprechaun as opposed to Mr. Met’s borderline racist cousin or anything Notre Dame does…but I digress..) Lucky Charms and started typing.
Don’t get me wrong. I have tons of stuff to post. But a lot of fluff and (my new favorite term) “jersey porn.” Jersey Porn is uniforms not anything to do with Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
Despite having “stuff” I try to lead the day with words.
Anyway…I popped on to twitter and there was @darthchipper asking me to mock the mainstream media by “confirming” the Shaun Marcum reports. Then it hit me…
Mrs. Mets Police has the Marge Face. I have this one. I make it a lot at my day job in counter-intelligence at MI6. I also am increasingly making it about my favorite baseball team.
Is there anything else to be said about Marcum? Or this team? This Wright-less, Santana-less, Murphy-less, Outfield-less team?
You want more Jim Halpert Face? Last night the #2 story on Mets.com was “Mets developing contingency plans for infield.”
Contingency plans for infield. On a team with no outfield.
And why did I head to Mets.com? I wanted to check in on ticket prices. Opening Day tickets start at just $63. Let me know when Dynamic Pricing works in the consumers’ benefit.
Jim would want you to check out my new eBook Send The Beer Guy. It’s just $3.99 and if you have the technology to read this post then you have the technology to read an ebook. Plus you love me.
