How about them Mets?
Tommy Glavine.

Carlos Beltran.

And my man, the anti-war baseball player of the year, first baseman and political junkie, Carlos Delgado, was looking good.

1. good pitchers duel
I honestly thought Weaver was going to get smoked...but just coughing up 2? If I was Larussa I would take that from Weaver any day...the Cards bats didn't show up, and Glavine shut them down hard...

3. whatta game!
Beltran is the Cards' worst nightmare.

And right now Glavine is our MVP. 13 scoreless innings.

5. I'm kind of looking forward to what Johnny Maine will do.
I think he's underestimated because of his youth. I think he's a good kid, talented too.

6. Mets are a helluva ball club, yup
But what's with this love affair Faux Sprots has for Jose Reyes? They didn't shut up about him during the series with the Dodgers, either.

:shrug:

7. I noticed that too...
a lot of errors for the broadcasters, at the begining of the game, they even got the date wrong...

9. Wagner choking? Again?
What else is new with that fucker.

Mota was a disgrace as well.

This is of the flavor of a season ending collapse.

12. Ya Gotta Believe....
We'll take these guys in six, then the Tiggers in seven.

You've gotta have heart
All you really need is heart
When the odds are sayin' you'll never win
That's when the grin should start
You've gotta have hope
Mustn't sit around and mope
Nothin's half as bad as it may appear
Wait'll next year and hope
When your luck is battin' zero
Get your chin up off the floor
Mister you can be a hero
You can open any door, there's nothin' to it but to do it
You've gotta have heart
Miles 'n miles n' miles of heart
Oh, it's fine to be a genius of course
But keep that old horse
Before the cart
First you've gotta have heart

13. We've got to think about the game!
The game, the game!

We've got to think about the game!
The game, the game!

Booze and broads may be great
Though they're great they'll have to wait
While we think about the game!

There was that waitress back in Kansas City
Built for comfort, dumb but pretty

Yeah? Yeah?

Man, her perfume sure did smell sweet!
Got her up to my hotel suite!

Yeah? Yeah?

She killed a pint of gin more or less
The lights were low and she slips off her dress!

Yeah? Yeah? Yeah? Yeah?

But then I thought about the game!

The game, the game!

Oh, yes, I thought about the game!

The game, the game!

Though I got the lady high
I just left her high and dry
'Cause I thought about the game!

He thought about the game!

There was that Pullman car that I got lost in
On a sleeper out of Boston

Yeah? Yeah?

Compartment doors all look the same there
Walked in one and there's this dame there!

Yeah? Yeah?

Blonde, and stacked, and absolutely bare
And nothin' separatin' us but air!

Yeah? Yeah? Yeah? Yeah?

But then I thought about the game!

The game, the game!

Oh, yes, I thought about the game!

The game, the game!

Though my heart said stay for tea,
All I said was pardon me!
'Cause I though about the game!

He thought about the game!

When a chick gives you the eye, remember

Abstain!

When you're dyin' for some rye, remember

Refrain!

If you're losin' at crap and the clock says it's eleven
Ans suddenly each roll you roll "huh" comes up a seven
And you're in the kind of dive where men are men

Be polite, say goodnight, you should be in bed by ten!

When your mother bakes you cakes, remember

Stay thin!

When you're kissin' till it aches, remember

Don't give in!

Every rule we shall obey to be sure
Cause to win we've gotta stay good and pure
Good and pure! Mmmmmmm

Hey, Rock, remember those twins we took a ride with?
Operatin' side by side with?

Yeah? Yeah?

We're out of gas three miles from Philly
The night is warm, the sky's a dilly

Yeah? Yeah?

So I suggest we sleep beneath a tree

Four minds with a single thought

I look at my girl

I look at mine

Then with one fell swoop

But then they thought about the game!
The game, the game!

Oh, yes, we thought about the game!

The game, the game!

To our women one and all,
We will see you in the fall
But for now we've got to stall
every dame!
And think about the game!
Think about the game!
Think about the, think about the, think about the, think about the,
Think about the game!

:patriot:

11. I'm a Yankee fan...
but I'd love to see a New York team win the world series again.

So, go Mets! :)

15. BEAT THE METS,
BEAT THE METS,
Step right up and beat the Mets!


Please St. Louis defeat the Mets. For the Mets are a New York team and New York teams are bad for baseball. So, I send this solemn prayer up to the Cards to defeat the Mets and keep New York out of the Series.

17. Detroit, Oakland (probably Detriot), either way, the Mets get rocked. hard
The NL was very, very weak this year.

And right now the Mets are 1-1 against a team that just barely finished above 500 in the absolute worst division in baseball...
