Lets Go Mets!

Playing the San Francisco Giants at home tonight in a one-game Wild Card match-up. I have to admit, I wrote ’em off way back in mid-August, but they came back, they battled back and won when they absolutely needed to, with the help of some key players returning / overcoming injuries, and fought to win home-field advantage. Got my pistachios and some ice tea (yeah, that’s how I party these days), put the girls on notice not to bug me with last-minute ephemera, and will doff the jersey.

Should they win tonight, they’ll go on to play the Cubs in a best-of-five series. The Cubs, boyhood team of my 84-year-old father-in-law who lives down in Hilton Head. That’s tough. The Mets eliminated the Cubbies last year in a championship sweep, and my FIL has been waiting his entire life for a World Series appearance. However, the Cubs are probably the best team in MLB. At least, averaged over the season. Not sure how they played at the end of September; momentum is huge in this sport. Just ask the Mets.

But I’m just a gentleman-farmer fan of the sport. Which means I enjoy it, win or lose. Should be a fun coupla hours, so long as it doesn’t turn into a romp over the home team.
