â€œI want to publicly apologize to Willie Randolph, and the Mets, for my radio comments. Throughout my career, and in many cases to my detriment, I have been open and honest with the media and at times discretion may have been a better choice. I continue to be an avid fan of Willie and the Mets, and have confidence that this team will be successful.
â€œThank you to all my fans who understand my tendency to wear my heart on my sleeve and let my enthusiasm get the best of me at times. I am honored by your support.â€
Changing it up for at leats one post, something on the light side.
So this video was posted on YouTube about 11 months ago and some if not most of you have probably seen it. It’s still worth posting now though. Easily one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
My only gripe is that Mr. Met is wearing a black jersey and a 2-tone cap.
The Mets Police and I were discussing uniforms (possibly the only time most men will discuss fashion) and I mentioned how in 1992 at Tom Seaver’s induction ceremony I saw a family of 4 all wearing different versions of his uniform – the father had a classic Mets jersey, the mother a Cincinatti one, the son a Chicago White Sox 41, and the daughter a Seaver Red Sox shirt – truly a dedicated family.
Mentioning Seaver on the Red Sox in 1986, we realized that the only times the Mets have been in the World Series, Seaver has been present:
- In 1969 he was their ace
- In 1973 he was their ace
- In 1986 he was in the Boston bullpen
- In 2000 he was a roving instructor and broadcaster. (There was also a Tom Seaver bobblehead promotion in July)
Seaver has not had a role with the team since 2005 and is now concentrating on his vinyard in Napa Valley (first bottles are due out sometime this year).
Can the Mets get to the World Series without Tom Terrific somewhere nearby?
