METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 21, 2011 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
May 2, 2011
First things first, I sat in section 129 courtesy of the New York Daily News contest on a clear, cold and windy "November" evening. Terry Collins gets ejected. (I was hoping he would kick dirt like Earl Weaver used to.) Jason Bay came back from his DL stint to start at LF. David Wright went yard, so did Mike Nickeas for his first MLB dinger. (I love it when I see a Mets player hit his first HR.) And Ike Davis...
Me and my buddy Billy sat next to a guy wearing a West Virginia University cap and I said to him that the weather was much suited for the annual WVU-Pitt "Backyard Brawl" football game than for the summer game and he agreed 100%.
On the way to the 7 train, there were a few morons from the Bronx praising Satan aka the Yankees and I shot back with the usual "YANKEES STINK" but I didn't say STINK and I added some very funny and very not-so-PC comments about Jeter and A-Bum as well.
By the way, Whenever I'm asked why I root for the Mets, I give them these 2 answers: I've been a Mets fan since I started watching baseball in the mid 1970's and my late mother who was very religious told me to NEVER, EVER WORSHIP SATAN....CASE CLOSED!!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
