Look, I can’t complain that Mets Intern Five doesn’t send me the press releases and then blow one off because I’m not into it. If my friends the Mets want me to tell you about some sneakers and a concert then I am gonna do it. A featured image would have been helpful, but hey I can use anything, like this stock footage image of what a Busta Rhymes concert COULD look like….

Besides Mets, you know I love you on twitter. I saw you announce this at 6:15 this morning. I had it in the Morning Laziness. You think the beat reporters had this story before you emailed it to them? No. I am your true friend.
