The Mets Were MIA This Weekend. So Were Their Fans.

The New York Mets' in-house Paper of Record  today excused the team's play this weekend by saying that it was tired.

Aw.

Just how tired it could be after a week at home and with a chance to play its first significant games all year is beyond me.  Perhaps they could use some Geritol.

Or perhaps—like Tinkerbell—they just didn't have much oomph because they didn't hear much clapping.

Big, three-game set at home against a hated rival, with a chance to move into a playoff spot and...Mets fans failed to show up.  Attendance was only 31,437; 38,300; and 30,170.

In other words, at least 3,000 seats were always available, and sometimes a full quarter of the Stadium Formerly Known As Shea.

Hey, we understand.  There was a lot going on this weekend.

The U.S. Open, last big week in the Hamptons.  Who stays in town?

Though aren't we always told what blue-collar, lunch-bucket folk Mets fans are?  Hmm, could that possibly be a silly stereotype sold by the sportswriters who love them so?

Never mind.  But the fact is, the Metsies are only 9th in NL attendance this year.  They have only cracked the 40,000 mark 9 times this year—and two of those games were against Guess Who.

By contrast, your New York Yankees cracked 40,000 fans 9 times in APRIL.  They have now done it 53 times, and that's despite a plethora of doubleheaders.

So far this season, the Yankees—first in the AL in fans—are outdrawing the Flushing Flashes by a cool million.  Guess it's not quite the Mets' town yet...

More blog posts like this please! I always encourage shitting on the Mets.

Me, I kinda like the Mets. But they're just always so...Mets.

Thank all the gods in the firmament that we have Happ going tonight rather than that stiff Keuchel. Keuchel has a terrible beard AND he's given up a whole run in his last three starts. Not one run per start. NO! One whole run! In three starts! Who would want a guy like that pitching for them!?



Fuck you Hal ... fuck you to death.


Where for art thou Jennifer? Cannot thou usurp the kingdom?

I have arranged for a guy in wheelchair to meet with Judge at every remaining game.

Four fucking runs and fucking ESPN is STILL showing a Cardinals blowout instead of the Yankee game they promised.

THEY FUCKING SUCK!

TheWinWarblist said...

Well done Beauregard. Well done.

That's a nice looking ride you're sporting there. What is that?




FYH.

TheWinWarblist said...

I'm liking that new chubby first basemen.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

10:42 and the FINALLY put on the Yankee game.

Good thing I saw all that garbage time in a game I don't give two shits about and missed the first 4 runs.

ESPN sucks.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

The home plate ump sucks as bad.

Correct strike calls and no runs scored that inning.

TheWinWarblist said...

See!? That's what I mean!! Who would want a Dallas Keuchel pitching for us when we have a Fucking Happ!?!?



Fuck you, you fucking Hal!!!

TheWinWarblist said...

You go Chubby! You just damm go you delightful gelatinous tub of goo!!!

Be a perfect spot for a Tri-State Ford ad.

Just saying.

Annnnnd Hapless walk the first two hitters of the inning. Because he's a grown up who's afraid to throw strikes?

TheWinWarblist said...

Austin Mike that is a very moving testimonial. Now that your Penis t, is 10 inches longer I have two questions.

1) How fucking small was your member to start with that you are now 10 inches longer?

2) Fuck you Hal.

Okay, so one question really.

Fuck you Hal. You too Dr OLU. Fuck you too.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

Austin Mike,

I like your alias. We all know it is you, Dr. Olu.

The person you are looking for is Stat Baby. He was the only one here that was in search of enlargement. He was quite self-conscious of his (ahem) inadequacies. Due to severe insecurity, he is no longer here. He can be found either at his place of residence -- mommy's basement, or at his place of employment -- The Pizza Pit.

If you increase his member by 10 inches, it may actually end up four inches long. Do whatever you can, but he condition seems to be resistant to standard procedures.

Rufus T. Firefly said...

PS, the umpire tonight SUCKS!!!!!

HoraceClarke66 said...

Yeah, baby!

Why, that was almost a decent game by Crapp! And the Cast of Thousands in the pen brought it home.

But, the REAL highlight of the game was...

HoraceClarke66 said...

FOOOOOOOOORD!

Pure barry! Yaldi!

Really pleased for Mike Ford

Ive been following him since he was drafted and it is great to see he is making the most of his chance in the big leagues

My opinion: You honor the Mets by putting their name (ever) on this blog. Two things that we know for sure are excrement are denizens of Queens -- the President of the United States, and the Mets.

But....

If we're going to piss on anyone, it should be Houston and the Dodgers. They are two mountains remaining (assuming we get past TB in the playdowns).

Also, can you imagine that the Yankee pitching staff yielded only 5 runs in 27 innings against the Dodgers this past weekend? In L.A.?

I looked it up. Dodgers have scored 722 runs in 133 games, according to MLB's team-stat thing -- 5th in baseball but 1st in the NL. Take away these 3, and it's 130 games, 717 runs, or 5.5 avg PER GAME.

I admit -- I didn't see THAT coming. And I'm the freaking optimist here!

HOSS, I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THOSE EYE OPENING ATTENDANCE STATS.

I WILL REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY TO ALL THE MET-LOVER/YANKEE HATERS I AM ASSOCIATED WITH.

THEY KEEP HARPING ON HOW CITIFIELD IS A GIANT "PLAYGROUND", AND HOW THE ATMOSPHERE IS LIKE "NOWHERE ELSE".

I TELL THEM, "YEAH, IT'S CALLED "WINNING BASEBALL...WE ENJOY THAT "ATMOSPHERE" EVERY YEAR AT OUR STADIUM...NOTHING NEW TO US!"
