Before I delve into last night’s antics, check out my first MLB.com byline. And what a fun assignment, too!
Yes, the whole thing would have been better had we won. But still, a good time was had by all.
The Back Page has a helluva lot of TVs. Also, waitresses showing off their boobies. Guess which one I took a picture of? Also in attendance were the Hawaiian Tropics girls, in tiny tops and bitty skirts, handing out pinup pictures of sexy ladies. Which is fine, but SNY? I watch you too. Can’t we get one shirtless guy thrown in the mix?! THAT I would have taken a picture of.
Right off the bat, I noticed two…well…Mets Grrl called them "hoochy" girls wearing Mets/SNY t-shirts, tied around their waists to show some midriff. I had a new mission: I wanted a Mets/SNY shirt. But could a non-hoochy girl get one? I found the t-shirt source and asked: Can I have a t-shirt? He responded: Yes, if you can answer a baseball question.
Mets Grrl immediately had my back: I bet you didn’t ask the hoochy girls a question! SNY Guy responded: No, they’re our models.
But I wasn’t worried. "Ask the question," I said confidently. So SNY Guy did: "Name one SNY announcer." I made a face and and reeled off five names. I got a t-shirt. Mets Grrl said I was given a "pink cap" question. She was right.
Even though the game had few thrilling moments, the crowd managed to get several "Let’s Go Mets" chants going on, with the help of–yes, that’s right–Cowbell Man. You won’t have to listen hard in the videos to hear him! I enjoy Cowbell Man. I think he’s a great fan-booster. But truly, homeslice loves a TV camera.
Meanwhile, as the Mets were stranding guys on base right and left, Coop, Mets Grrl, and I shared camera and phone pics of our gorgeous cats. I know. Trust me, I know. But if your little one looked like this, tell me you wouldn’t share.
What else made me smile last night? I asked for my cocktail in a Mets glass. Look at me all moon-faced and grinny. I could say I was a good girl and resisted the temptation, but I would be lying. I will drink everything from this glass. Even wine.
