METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 22, 2012 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
September 25, 2012
For my final visit to Citi in 2012, it was fantastic!! Ran into a couple of A's fans heading to the Bronx to take on the Evil Empire and I gave them some advice: BE CAREFUL. Got off the 7 train and I saw that the New York Lottery was there again and I met Yolanda Vega for the 2nd straight year, Without a doubt, she is a stunningly beautiful woman. WFAN's Joe Beningo has often said that his fantasies DON'T involve sports and since this is a family website I will keep my fantasies about me and Yolanda to myself.
The ballpark had plenty of pre-game stuff from fans walking their dogs to cheerleaders from grade school to the Jets Flight Crew doing their rah-rah stuff. R.A. was great until he got into some trouble in the 9th and Jon Rauch almost blew it but all turned out well as he got the last out. Even the maligned Jason Bay hit a home run right near the Apple. I know 2012 hasn't turned out the way that it should have but I know in my heart and the heart of the millions of loyal Mets fans: Better and brighter days are coming and the New York Mets will return to prominence and glory in the New York baseball (and sports) scene and that crooked, pop a pill and hit a home run outfit in the Bronx will be in the gutter! Let's go Mets!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
