5. Come on.
5. Come on.
I never ever want the Mets to change their current set, and the home swoosh Mets jersey sucked, but these have aged well.
I’ve always been a big fan of Shea Stadium’s exterior “confetti” panels. Also a big fan of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. But never noticed until now how the panels looked like Mondrian’s 1917 painting ‘Composition in Colour B’! (h/t Mary Ellen Coghlan) (cc: @metspolice) pic.twitter.com/kPL7BpJsg3

SLACKISH REACTION: One of the reasons I started the Morning Laziness a few years back was to force myself to write every day. Some days there is plenty to talk about, some days not much, but I could always fluff it out with some Larry David like rant about how the people at the bagel store don’t know how to order.
This morning, I got nothing. I am kind of sleepy, too sleepy to even walk upstairs to make coffee. I used to use the Donuts Chain Run as a jump-start to my day. Drive into town, see a few people, get some caffeine into my system, but I stopped that a few weeks back as it just isn’t worth the risk.
Oh, you want to talk about the Mets. Um, OK, SNY is asking Gary Cohen about David Wright for some reason. We’re down to that. Some folks are in day three of debating whether or not the black uniforms suck Let me end that – they suck.
Vulgar Pete Alonso keeps almost getting it right but then adding an F to his otherwise nice sentiments, so I increasingly have zero interest in him. By the way, did you know he hit zero home runs this spring? Zero. That’s weird.
And that’s that. This was actually more words than I thought I had in me. I hope you and your family are safe and enjoying the various Coronavirus Filler on the blog, including Best Mets By Number or whatever I called it – today we are up to #5, who do you suppose it will be?
My choice is Jed Lowrie. Partly because of the joke, and mainly because my blog ignores the antics of the man who wore 4 in the late 80s
