Mets Blog was talking about the possibility of a song called “Keepin It Gangsta” being used as a theme song for the ’09ers.
While I enjoy the whole gangsta thing and kinda hope Jerry stabs someone for not running out a grounder, one of my suggested New Traditions For A New Mets Stadium is that they take the field to Meet the Mets. Not some new cheesy version (like the 80’s remix that WFAN likes) – the real traditional one from the old old days.
People like nostalgia right – or does that only apply to obsessing over a baseball team that split town over 50 years ago?
(and bring back the Curly Shuffle!!!)
Wow I don’t even know what to say about this one. Sully Baseball sent me a link with a great post about 1987’s “Think Big” campaign that…
a) I apparently blocked out over either horror or post WS euphoria
b) proves the Strawberry Mets did do a lot of drugs
c) makes me wish I had a time machine because 1987 needs some Mets Police.
I can’t describe what you’re about to see unless you visit Sully…trust me it’s worth it…
…but here’s a teaser of what Sully wrote.
The actor playing the scientist I guess was told to over compensate for Mookie Wilson, Gary Carter and Roger McDowell’s lack of acting ability. Eddie Deezen would tell this guy to “Bring it back.”
– Why is there a computer on the on deck circle?
– That whole opening scene was a build up for an air guitar sequence? And why air guitaring with baseball bats?
– I bet they shot about 30 minutes of improvisation with dancing and air guitaring with baseball bats. That poor poor editor.
