*Now* it makes sense.

This just in from the AP Wire:

QUEENS, NEW YORK (AP) — Loss_water_1 Water samples in the area of Willets Point, Queens, have tested positive for the LOSS Virus. City officials say the contamination likely reached a saturation point approximately five days ago–though trace elements of the L Virus may indeed have been present in the water all summer.

Symptoms of LOSS contamination include dejection, lack of focus, mental lapses in crucial situations, and a profound case of what medical professionals are terming "Not Getting It Done."

Management at Shea Stadium–where the infection has been most virulent–informed local officials tonight that steps will be taken immediately to rid the water of its toxins. They have assured us that a combination of good pitching, strong offense, and sharp defensive plays will be deployed right away to fight this dangerous and pervasive epidemic.

Although experts are not able to reach a consensus on the cause of the toxic leak, they assure us that the infection is temporary and–most important of all–reversible.

SNK requested that I return to photoshopping our Mets pitchers as pop cultural icons for luck. So here starts the Lord of the Rings edition.

    HAHA I love it! Let’s hope the LOSS virus is reversible immediately and there are no lingering effects today. I hope I didn’t catch the virus from my trips to Shea this week

    Maybe that’s what I caught when I was there Wednesday. I definitely left with some kind of sickness. I’m headed to today’s game with the vaccine in my pocket.

    Well..this is the first Mets blog that I’ve visited today that isn’t full of all of this, ‘it’s over’ business. YEAH!!

    I hope the photoshopping works!

    Cute entry. And I agree with above commenter – it’s nice to see a fan stick with their team and temper their frustration with some humor when the wheels are falling off.
