On last night’s over-hyped and under-whelming Super Exclusive Interview With Mets Owner Steve Cohen, investigative reporter Steve Gelbs asked about Black Uniforms and
that time Steve’s company gave the Feds $1.8B out of the goodness of its heart.
“I haven’t talked to the players about it. I want to make sure they would be into that. And maybe we do it on a night every once in a while or something, just to shake it up.”
So let me explain to where we are in the movie. I see some of you running to me, and I’m the old guy ex-action hero in the film saying, “What do you want me to do about it?” I’m done fighting over any of this – I told you, Dom Smith broke me when he went vulgar – and no longer care.
I was like you once …so completely blinded by duty and obligations that I couldn’t see anything past black uniforms. And in the end, what did it get me? An immature Polar Bear dropping Fs into everything and another decade with no championships.
If the new Billionaire that replaced the old Billionaire wants black uniforms hey whatever. If he wants to turn the power over what his brand wears to a bunch of kids who think its fun to say F in the middle of LGM, who am I to say that they shouldn’t.
In a tweet, Pete Alonso once said…
“The black unis are the dopest! No cap. It would be a mentality and attitude. The orange and blue accents are like the city lights in the night sky. So many Mets greats wore the black. My only question is: why not?”
Pete himself is the dopest.
If you guys want to play 4 hour games with 15 relief pitchers while wearing black uniforms and chanting F in the middle of LGM…..who am I to say no. My memories have already been made. You guys go make your own.
My time has passed. I’m happy here in the Nexus thinking about Tom Seaver walking in from Right Field on April 5, 1983 and all the other great memories I have. It was fun.
