Baseball season is officially here and for the Mets, today is the their first game of the season! It's chance for the Mets to start fresh with a clean slate…again.
In the past few years the Mets have been the disappointing younger brother of New York baseball. In their defense, east coast baseball in general is no walk in the park. Being sandwiched between heavy hitting teams like the Yankees and Red Socks, can be a bit overwhelming. So if you're out there today and the Mets are having a disastrous game, keep in mind things could be worse. They could be much, much worse.
For instance the Titanic was a three fold disaster! Not only did the sinking of the original Titanic lead to the tragic death of hundreds, but it also led to James Cameron's over indulgent movie based on it. And if that weren't bad enough, audiences had to sit through it again, but this time in headache inducing 3-D. Listening to Celine Dion's music alone makes the Mets look not so bad in comparison.
Is the idea of living through another bad season for the Mets keeping you up at night? Well, then drink a warm glass of milk and think about the sleepless nights the guy reporting on the Hindenburg had. And if anything, at least watching the Mets lose isn't as nightmarish as dying because of something as simple as molasses.
And no bad Mets game could ever come close to being as terrible as Sex in the City: 2 was. This awful sequel alone overshadowed the Mets as the most embarrassing thing ever to come out of New York. So if some Yankee fan is being a jerk to you at the bar, just tell him he's being a total 'Charlotte'. Then again, saying that to a guy in a sports bar may prove to be just as disastrous.
