Sweet! It’s the history of Mr. Met thanks to SNY.
“whats wrong with the mets”
That search term greeted me in my stats today. I laughed hilariously. Because I don’t know. Nobody does. The team went from good to terrible. Lucas Duda was sent to the minors and Jason Bay patrols left field because he’s paid a lot of money. It’s all comically bad all of a sudden. So fellow Mets fan that found my page thanks to that search term I salute you. We can watch the rest of the season knowing we’re not alone in our misery!
In other techie news, I read about the new Mac Mountain Lion release. It looks interesting. As a PC user I’m not familiar with Macs, but I do love the iOS experience. For simplicity’s sake, I might move to a Mac eventually. Yes, I finally just want technology to get out of my way for the mundane tasks.
One last thing, thanks to the Zite app, I got to check out this awesome inflatable water park on Red Ferret Journal. I can’t imagine how someone might modify that for a college football tailgate.
New York Mets 1969 Pennant by Mitchell & Ness
I bought this a few days ago from the MLB.com Shop. It has a pretty cool retro look to it, and I didn’t want anything too busy or loud for a baby’s room. Upon closer inspection when I mounted it, I realized that there was a flaw with the logo. This pennant does not portray the 1969 New York Mets logo accurately. Anybody care to guess why?
I thought this was really interesting regarding my Mets and their home field dimensions - Citi Field Home Runs Old Dimensions vs. New Dimensions Through 49 HRs
Forbes named Mr. Met the Number 1 most popular mascot because he’s a “Veteran, kid-friendly mascot (that) has taken on a greater role during the Mets’ troubled years.”
I have to admit that I’m a bit sore about the Mets throwing Mr. Met under the bus during the 1970s and 1980s. I missed out Mr. Met in my childhood because of some manager’s decision to bail on a kid friendly mascot. However, I am thankful that Lois Kaufmann finally stirred up enough support to bring him back in the 1990s. My future children thank her!
