Jason Bay is a good player, and is said to be a good guy. I’m glad we (yes, I’m one of those fans who refers to their team as “we”) signed him, not least because it will, at least temporarily, quiet the annoying ‘fans’ who accuse the Mets of being cheap, despite having one of the highest payrolls in the game. But, wow, that’s a big contract.
As a general rule, I am rarely critical of the Mets. However, when they sign a steroid-abusing egotist, as they did today, all bets are off. Ugh.
~Shea Stadium is officially gone. I went by there Monday to see what was left and to see the progress of NewShea, and upon seeing that just a bit of the right field stands remained, I actually got a little choked up. Unfortunately, I hadn’t yet gotten my camera, and I didn’t realize that I wouldn’t have another chance to capture the remains of the Shea.
~Now I have my camera.
~This sounds like a great charity.
You know, I wish that the Dodgers and Giants would reject him already. “25 million isn’t enough? Okay. Guess you’ll have to find something else to do from April through October, then. I hear embroidery is fun.”
I’m not sure it would have an impact on him, though. Worse, it would mean that the Manny-to-Mets speculation/pleading would never end. (Million Manny March?!)
~What does the Super Bowl mean to me? That it’s almost time for spring training! (Although I do have to admit that I’m entertained by my neighbor’s intermittent cries of “It’s a miracle!” and the like. :D)
~So, ABC deems Wipeout Bowl 1: Cheerleaders vs. Couch Potatoes worthy of airtime, but not the last three episodes of Pushing Daisies?
~For some reason, I am unable to post a blogroll, so I’ll mention my new favorite website (mentalfloss.com) here. Trivia quizzes and fascinating facts? How did I not know about this before a couple of months ago?!
And with that, I am going to go eat vegetable lasagna.
