How does it feel, Met fans?

You spend the whole season rooting like crazy. You get hot at the end, raising hope to a fever. You make the one-game playoff.

And then you run into an ace pitcher, and you don't even score a run.

Hurts, don't it?

The didn't just run into an ace pitcher, they ran into a man featured on the Sixth Day of Moonvent.

Clearly Bumgarner is buzzing with the extra energy that comes from such an honor.

He owes me.

It sucks when your closer comes in and turns out to be an opener.

Citi's behind home plate leather seats are so much better than the Mall of America's.

OK. I will pay some YUGE homage to the phenomenon that you created with Moon Big Papi - nice freaking job. You will go down in the annals of this blog and many other Northeastern sports-chatter sets as a truly made man. You deserve the kudos and accolades. While you lost on 9/29 - as your extended diary stated .... (I'm looking forward to reading the book or watching the docu-drama) you won the hearts and minds of us everyday fans regardless of our team's allegiance.

With that said and as a lifelong Giant fan .... I want to point out that your hyperbole on being "owed" is not only ridiculous in the face of Bummy's post-season records - but is about as self-serving a statement as I have ever read on this blog. And "Jerk" - I can call you Jerk can't I? My visits to this blog date back to the yearly votes on AHOY - decades ago now .....

A couple months back - I had commented on how the Yankees were treating A-ROD ... (as a PNWer I also hold dear to my heart his amazing years as Mariner regardless of his narcissism). So I had skin in that game this summer - and can't apologize for piling on how the front office dealt with him.

You accused me of trolling the blog to create disruption and cause havoc - calling me a bothersome driver in the way - changing speeds - as you drove around. Well here is some advice - from the bothersome driver getting to close to you in I-95 lanes: Lose the over the top braggadocio that suits someone like Trump ... cuz Jerk to your credit - "we know Trump and you are no Donald Trump". Not yet anyway.

Your come back might start with "Rose City - there you go again ...." (probably to be continued)
