Wow it’s April 15th again?
Quick recap for the newbies – the blog started because I wanted to teach myself about what was then called New Media and I decided to write about my two favorite things, the Mets and The Police.
Well, lol it became a Mets blog.
Anyway, on April 15 2008 the Mets (and all other teams) took the field wearing #42 jerseys with No Names On The Back (NNOB in uni-parlance.)
Now, as a person with good taste you know that baseball uniforms look better with NNOB – BUT if you ever needed a name on the back, maybe the day when everyone has the same number would be a good day.
Along the way, made some friends, some people followed, some unfollowed, I’ve been called a shill, and I’ve been called negative (I’m actually always the same, it’s the fanbase that goes from GREATEST TEAM EVER to BOYCOTTS AND BILLBOARDS).
Two stadiums, a few managers, an All Star Game, a World Series, Murph, the Dark Knight, David Wright, dragged my kid to a million games, Banner Day, hit a game with Dave Howard, helped (I think) convince the Mets to get rid of the stupid black uniforms….and probably a whole lot of other posts.
I’ve gone from being in my 30s to running out of 40s. Big thanks to @mediagoon for his participation for many years. Thank YOU for reading and getting the jokes.
The mission continues to be that I blog until the Mets win the World Series while dressed nicely, then a post or two about the parade and then adios. (Maybe I will go fix Star Trek or something.) I thought I was out in 2015 but the Mets keep dragging me in.
Thanks for being part of this silliness.
