Stop Being Willfully Stupid – Yahoo article about Mets and Trevor Bauer

I see a headline from Yahoo (how’s that Mets site coming guys?) about how Trevor Bauer’s agent is going to let Bauer know that Mets fans are interested in him.

  1.  Like that has anything to do with anything
  2. Bauer has been openly flirting with teams and their fanbases on twitter – including the Yankees….as he should.  The Yankees will likely pay him more, plus they aren’t losers (although they haven’t sniffed a World Series since the Aughts so they are starting to be losers.)

So what’s the idea here…..the phone rings….”Hey Trevor, it’s me, Ari Gold…look the Mets fans really ant you so I’m gonna get a deal done, ok bye.”

Stupid stupid stupid.  As Khan says….

Speaking of Star Trek – I would like to congratulate them.  They have gotten me all the way to the point that a new season of Discovery came out and I didn’t watch, I didn’t try to watch, I didn’t read a recap, I didn’t watch a Youtube video about it.  I just don’t care.

Which is kind of how I feel about the Mets now that Dom Smith has embraced the spreading virus of vulgarity.

 

New documentary covers time Mets were losers in 2000 World Series

Featuring New Interviews With Roger Clemens, Mike Piazza, Joe Torre And Bobby Valentine Reminiscing On One Of The Greatest Weeks In New York Sports History

LOS ANGELES – For one week in October 2000, baseball was the only topic on the minds of New Yorkers. The Yankees and the Mets squared off in the World Series for the first time and only time in history.

“When New York Was One: The Yankees, The Mets & The 2000 Subway Series,” a new documentary from FOX Sports Films in association with Major League Baseball, looks nostalgically at the legendary matchup between these two teams. The film remembers this epic series through the lens of New York’s citizens – one year before the 9/11 tragedy – and highlights a community forever-changed in the 20 years since, all the way to its unique present-day climate.

Directed by Emmy®-Award winner Aaron Cohen and produced by Patent Seven and Post Haste Creative, the film will debut on Thursday, October 15 following game 4 of the NLCS on FS1.

“The 2000 Subway Series was a great moment for New Yorkers and fans everywhere,” said Charlie Dixon, Executive Vice President of Content at FOX Sports. “This is a baseball documentary that doubles as an homage to the city and a moment in time, and it reminds us that sports can connect communities, even through fierce rivalry.”

Featuring new interviews filmed this summer with Yankees manager Joe Torre, Mets manager Bobby Valentine and key players from the series including Andy Pettitte, David Cone, Bernie Williams, Al Leiter, Edgardo Alfonzo and Todd Zeile, “When New York Was One” captures the emotion and drama that could be felt across every corner of Queens and the Bronx that week. Roger Clemens and Mike Piazza discuss their deep-seated rivalry and the bat throwing incident in game two of the series, their first face-off after Piazza was hit by a pitch Clemens threw earlier in the 2000 season.

“People like to say that sports is a distraction from real life, when many times it’s actually a reflection of what’s going on around us,” said Nick Trotta, Senior Director of Global Media, Programming and Licensing at MLB. “The story of the 2000 World Series and the events following it shows the power of baseball to define our relationships with each other and our teams, and ultimately unites us under the banner of the game.”

F the @Mets

This broke me. I am so disappointed by everything this team does. Dom has embraced the poison of vulgarity brought to the organization by Pete Alonso

I don’t even care to fight any more. I’ll just not watch. I’ve been fine not attending games, I will be fine cutting back on wasting time on all this.

I’m done rooting for Dom. I enjoyed being his biggest supporter this season but if he’s down with the F then I am out.

Let’s go Mets. Let’s don’t go Mets. I really just don’t care any more. Do whatever you losers want.

LOL Mets Chess Set

Hey guess what this is?

It’s a chess set?

Um….which one is the horse?   Which one is the castle?  Why do all the pieces look the same Mets?

Look you chess nerds, I know they are called Knights and Rooks.  GO WITH THE BIT

I giggled about this for ten minutes but turns out it’s not that kind of chess set even though it’s called CHESS SET.

Apparently you millennials are doing some sort of post-cornhole parking lot weirdness in your t-shirts.

Showcase your love for the New York Mets by adding this Kubb Viking Chess Set to your collection. The crisp graphics will add an awesome touch to your fan cave and ensure everyone notices your fandom. This stunning game is a perfect excuse for gathering your friends together for an epic New York Mets party.

  • Outdoor game often described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes
  • Includes: (10) 6” x 2.75” Kubb blocks, (6) 1.5” x 12” Kubb tossing dowels, (1) 12” x 3.5” king Kubb, and (4) corner pegs

I am still confused.  Help me Wikipedia.

Kubb (pronounced [kɵbː] …..and I hope that phonetic really cleared this up for you…….in Swedish or [kubː] in Gutnish) is a lawn game where the objective is to knock over wooden blocks (kubbs) by throwing wooden batons (kastpinnar) at them. Kubb can be described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes. Play takes place on a small rectangular playing field, known as a “pitch”. “Kubbs” are placed at both ends of the pitch, and the “king”, a larger wooden block, is placed in the middle of the pitch. Some rules vary from country to country and from region to region, but the ultimate objective of the game is to knock over the “kubbs” on the opposing side of the pitch, and then to knock over the “king”, before the opponent does. Games can last from five minutes up to three days. The game can be played on a variety of surfaces such as grass, sand, concrete, snow, or even ice.

The alleged Viking origin of the game has led some players and kubb fans to nickname the game “Viking chess”.

You guys enjoy that.  I’ll be home half-asleep in my outdoor recliner.

But now that we have learned all about Viking Chess, what’s chess about this?

THREE DAYS?  Even baseball is like wow your games are too long.

Off-season filler?  Off-season filler.
