Fun Facts from Over the Pond!

Did you know that the best team in England is the London Mets???

It's true!  "Mets" being an abbreviation here for "Metaphors"!

Oh, all right, it's an abbreviation for "Meteors."

But...Bonus Fun Fact!

The London Mets could beat the New York Mets!

It's true!

Today, the Mets blew their fifth straight game in which they had a multi-run lead!  No team has done that in the major leagues since...the 2011 New York Mets!

Other teams in England that could beat the Mets:

Tottenham Hot Spur
The Arsenal Gunners
Wolverhampton
Leeds United
Man City
Man U
Man U Too Buddy

Yes, they are all soccer teams!  But they could still...beat the Mets!

What? No cricket news?

Blimey! You're insufferable, I tell you!

Our fellow convict colony, the Ozzies appear to be in first place, but don't trust those Indians after they got out from the Raj.

It appears that the world cup is limited overs matches.

Wouldn't want your best bowler throwing out his arm.

Britain's finest 'hard' news daily is following all the action. Absolutely titillating. Some of the other sections more so.

A splendid publication worthy of in-depth perusal. Also info on bookies and call girls. They cover other sports besides cricket. And have frequent topless photos that may or may not be photoshopped.

Meet the Mets
Beat the Mets
Step right up and cleat the Mets
Because the Mets are really missing the ball
Hitting a wall
Coming up small
East Side
West Side
They're a bunch of clowns
And that's your New York Mets!

I always thought it was;

Meet the Mets
Greet the Mets
Step right up defeat the the Mets

Bring your kiddies
Bring your wife
They will have the laugh of their life

Because the Mets are always missing the ball
knocking them-selves into the wall...

East Side
West Side
They're the biggest jokes in town.
So come and meet the New York Mets
They're New York's clowns.

(I suppose the words are somewhere on the web but this is what I remember.)
