What I Learned From Shea Day: A Pictorial
Dave Magadan enjoys baseball. It's going to be a fine day, indeed.
The Mets grounds crew is probably the best in the league. That should be worth a half-run right there.
We had AWESOME seats. Strange that the box number was Larry Sucks. Oh well, best not to look too deep into these things.
Jose Reyes may just be the best player in the history of MLB.
Carlos Delgado still stinks. Those runs didn't get driven in and the game didn't get blown open, as I was hoping pre-taking this picture. Then I realized Delgado's terrible.
Ken Dynamo enjoys showing up late to baseball games with a BAC WELL over the legal limit.
Billy Wagner likes to run, when he doesn't have to. Apparently Pete Rose did this too, but nobody seems to think Wagner is somehow a super-human workhorse. Also- Wagner didn't bet on baseball, which is truly one of the few actions that a single individual can do to take down the sport completely.
The G train exists. I found that out at this exact moment. Previously I thought it was like the Yeti or Loch Ness monster. Apparently it goes between Brooklyn and Queens, which also exist beyond the Brooklyn Brewery and Shea Stadium, respectively.
Queens is quite nice. Crazytalk, I know. But LOOK. It's gorgeous!
MLB teams think it's a good idea to walk Julio Franco.
I had an interesting night on Thursday, details of which were being relayed back to me as late as Saturday. Apparently I'm still able to go back to the bar where my knees took on this form!
Dave Magadan enjoys his in-between-game-post-shower-beer.
Ken Dynamo is in fact a cyborg sent back in time to save Willie Randolph from using up all of his position players in a colossally dumb move by pinch running for Lo Duca with a pitcher and then using Marlon Anderson to pinch hit, rather than Ramon "Shrek" Castro. Then inserting Castro into that spot, thus using Anderson for only one AB.
If Mike Pelfrey throws a pitch, and nobody's around to hit it, is it still a meatball?
Carlos Delgado still sucks in Game 2!
This guy REALLY enjoys his cell-phone golf.
Almost as much as Dynamo enjoys his ice cream. Damn you lactase-producing-humanoids!
I gained 6 lbs during this day. That's not a joke. I think I can see myself sprouting a double-chin in this picture.
Magadan and Dynamo are incredulous that Willie has lost all of his pinch hitters in a 1-run ballgame in the bottom of the 9th and Tom "Mr. 299" Glavine must now pinch hit.
When Dave Magadan is sad the angels cry.
Things Ken Dynamo doesn't like: Willie Randolph, Paul LoDuca, having to urinate on the 7 train.
Shea Day 2K7. The End.
