2009 Mets Mad Libs…for real, print it out…

MadLibs.jpgThere’s nothing we can do. This season has been one major disappointment after another, on and on, until the only alternative to pulling out our hair is to laugh. So let’s take lemons and make lemonade. Or take crazy ridiculous bad luck and make crazyridiculousbadluckade. Print it out, play with friends, and feel free to email me the results at helenacity@gmail.com. If any make me laugh out loud, I’ll publish them!


You know how to play, right? Find a friend, don’t show him or her the Mad Lib, and just ask for responses that fit the italics. Write them in, read, and enjoy. Imagine this broadcast for your New York Mets…What should Gary be saying?


We’ve got to think the 2009 Mets have been cursed by a [noun]. From the moment this

team [verb, past tense] on the field, injuries and [noun, plural] have befallen the Mets

right and left. The latest player on the DL, [2009 Met player], landed there by [verb

 ending in -ing] his groin. Can you believe that? These Mets find ways to injure

themselves like you’d never imagine. Mark our words, we think [2009 Mets Player] will

be the next to go down, by simply [verb ending in -ing]. 


But now to the play on the field. The umpire today seems really [adjective]. How could

he have missed that simple call at first? We have not seen umpiring like this ever. It’s

like they’re using their [body part singular or plural] instead of their eyes. Now we have

[2009 Mets player] stepping up to the plate. Bases loaded with 1 out. And he [verb] into

the double play! Unbelievable. On to the top of the 9th, with the Mets down by

[number].  We’ve got a new pitcher in for the Mets, [2009 relief pitcher]. He’s had an up

and down season, currently with an ERA of [number]. We thought he’d have a better

year, until he [verb, past tense] his last outing and wound up [verb ending in -ing]

three batters. The Mets could have a chance here if they [verb]. They just need to play

tight ball and– Oh no, can you believe it? [2009 Met player] has dropped the ball! That

is just [adjective]. Really, anything that could happen to this [adjective] team has

happened. And yes, yes it looks like [same 2009 Met player as last] has come up lame

on that play. He’s limping and holding his [body part]. I think it’s safe to assume they’ll

call him “day to day” and he’ll miss [number] games. We think someone’s headed for

the Hospital of Special Surgery for a [adjective] MRI. That MRI machine has sure seen

the Mets in some [adjective] positions. Another player down for the NY Mets. Another

error that just might lose this [adjective] game. You just can’t make this stuff up.
