Some Snow Day Cards
February 9th, 2013 by slangon

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but at the moment I’m sitting under roughly a foot of snow. That’s a slightly annoying amount, but after the way everyone around here and in the media was freaking out over the last few days, it seems like a coating. Anyway, what better way to […]

God Speed, Good Sir.
December 18th, 2012 by slangon

It’s a bittersweet day in Metsdom. On one hand, I once again have to bid farewell to my favorite Met just after he finished an amazing season. On the other hand, gaping holes in the team are being filled. On the third hand, now that R.A. and Jose are both on the Blue Jays, I […]

Making The Season Worth Watching
September 28th, 2012 by slangon

It’s become painfully clear that 2012 is a lost season for my beloved New York Metropolitans. I don’t think I’m making any kind of groundbreaking statement by saying that. What has taken a little bit of the sting out of that is the fact that there are a couple of feel good stories going on […]

I Guess We’ve All Got To Go Sometime
September 23rd, 2012 by slangon

To the Mets game, that is, which is where I’m off to today. I’ve got kind of mixed feeling on the matter, too. I don’t think I need to remind you what a colossal disappointment the 2012 Mets season has been (we have the media and Yankee’s fans for that), so I’m sure you can […]

Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 2012
July 12th, 2012 by slangon

So far, halfway through the 2012 season, I don’t think that anyone in their right minds could possible complain at where the Mets find themselves. After everyone expecting the Mets to be the rug of the N.L. East, and after a horribly dismal Spring Training, the team finds themselves with a 46-40 record and are […]

Damn I Hate West Coast Swings
June 29th, 2012 by slangon

Games that start after 10 o’clock? Games that end around 1 in the morning? Ugh. Fortunately, the Mets were able to hang on by their toenails last night against the Dodgers and win it 3-2. Of course since it was a close one, I wasn’t able to go to sleep until that last out was […]

All Hail Dickey
June 14th, 2012 by slangon

Last night, R.A. Dickey pitched a gem of a game for the Mets. He threw a complete game, struck out 12, walked none, only gave up one unearned run and only allowed one hit. In the process, he became the first pitcher in the Majors to hit double digit wins and he set a new […]

Godspeed, Mr. Dickey
January 6th, 2012 by slangon

In case you haven’t heard, today marks the day that Mets knuckleballer and all around super cool guy R.A. Dickey starts his ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Aside from climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro being a cool thing to do, he is doing it to raise money and awareness for┬áBombay Teen Challenge, a charity which helps […]
