METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 30, 1966 GAME:Mike from da Bronx
September 18, 2006
I went to this doubleheader in my sophomore year of high school with my friends Jack & Karl. We were sitting in the Mezzanine Reserve section off first base and I don’t remember a thing about either ball game, except for the fan sitting next to me. Every time Tony Taylor of the Phillies got up or caught a ball, this fan (probably in his mid-twenties) shouted over and over again “Tony Tony Two By Four, Can’t Fit Through The Bathroom Door, Makes A Puddle On The Floor, Licks It Up And Does Some More. You Stink Phillies” The three of us made a pact to switch seats every three innings to share this embarrassment. I did the first three innings, then Jack switched with me. After Jack did his three innings, Karl refused to switch seats --- and Jack was stuck with the chanting fan for the rest of the first game and all of the second. Somehow I don’t think Jack ever forgave us but the three of us can still recite that chant after forty years.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
