Yesterday I wrote about how I am NOT excited for Opening Day (road version) and found more people agreed with me than not (Facebook discussion). One commenter asked why my posts have been so negative recently.
This is a normal reaction to the site (established 2008). When things are going well I come across as negative. I get it. Most of my posts are about how things could be better. Totally fair.
Then what happens is the Mets find themselves in 4th place and the fanbase starts talking about boycotts. I then hand in the same kind of comment and get told I am a shill/sellout etc. (Did you know that one time I got half a steak sandwich and a bottle of water FREE at a VIP Mets event!). That always amuses me.
Anyway, do I do “negative” posts. Sure. Win a World Series and maybe I will write something nice.
SLACKISH REACTION: I know I’m out here on an iceberg now but I will believe Pete Alonso is on the team when Pete Alonso is actually on the team.
I can’t take this seriously (via Newsday):
“We send our people to Nathan’s hot dog school,” he said. “As crazy as it sounds, Nathan’s has a school for how you cook their hot dogs . . . There’s actually a science to it.”
We have ten years to solve climate change. The hot dogs will be fine.
Now that Robert Mueller has free time I’d like him to investigate relationships between sports agencies and big city franchises, because I suspect his findings would be interesting.
Was nice to sleep in this morning. This post is extra lazy.
Meanwhile we can get all dramatic about this:
