METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 5, 2012 GAME:Mister X
April 6, 2012
A total of five pitchers to throw a shutout. Welcome to baseball in the 21st century!
April 10, 2012
Unlike the 2011 home opener when it was a cold, raw cloudy 40 degrees; Mets fans were treated to a sunny yet breezy 60 degrees. Had my usual Blue Smoke Kansas City Ribs (They downsized the ribs from '11), etc and the opening day ceremonies were emotional with Gary Carter's widow and 3 children throwing out the first pitch. Johan Santana looked pretty decent pitching 5 scoreless innings and then the bullpen shut down the Braves as David Wright drove in the only run in a HAPPY RECAP to start the Mets 50th anniversary. (FYI, The Mets 50th logo kinda looks like the Warner Bros.) The only downside was that Flushing guy who got voted off American Idol sang "God Bless America"; I was hoping that the Mets would've gotten the talented Pia Toscano to do the gig. Lets face it: Pia is way better looking!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
