Who were the Mets playing? The worst team in the NL by far.
Zoe had to visit the folks’ house in Brooklyn and had to miss the game. Rob was out with his friend John.
9:15 PM (Rob’s phone–which is never off–goes straight to voicemail. Zoe leaves a message.): "Your phone went straight to voicemail, so I know you’re checking the score. And you’re seeing that we’re losing. And that we’ve gotten 1 run off 7 hits. *Heaving sigh*"
9:30 PM (Zoe is on the Q train, going over the bridge, when she receives this text): "Now we are losing 7 to 1"
10:00–ish PM. (Zoe texts to Rob): "11-1. 11-1! ARGH!"
And that’s the Motorola Razr Cell Phone coverage of the July 3rd Mets Pirates game. Oh, I’m sorry. Did I say game? I meant DEBACLE.
(But good job Maine, at least for a while there!)
(Too bad we seem to have been playing in New Hampshire!)
(Also? Go away, A-Rod.)
(And Scott Kazmir? You can stop being so excellent. You’re just rubbing it in now.)
