After a long hard lonely devastating month with out a visit to my new home Citi Field, I finally returned home. I am more than delighted to announce that the Mets are now on a 4 game winning streak!!!! Thanks Big Pappa Pelf!!! I LOVE YOU!

This game was just a gem and I'm soo glad to have been there. It had everything. Near homerun thrills. Guys colliding, and falling backwards (for reasons I still do not comprehend) and my favorite; balls bouncing around like they were in a pin ball machine!!!! Mets win 4-0!!!!

As for the Sox... what happened!??!?! The whole game I'm watching the out of town scoreboard following the Sox score and praying for a Yankee loss which i got!!! Now as i'm leaving Citi, the Fenway score is 7-3 in the 8th. More than excited at the prospect of getting home to see Fenway highlights on ESPN, i find that instead it is 7-7 in the 11th inning. WHAT??? The Sox eventually went on to lose 9-8 devastating!


Perhaps this is why one shouldn't procrastinate. Last night I had a brilliant idea for a post and now it has since left my mind.

For starters I'd love to see an end to everyone else's winning streaks. The Mets have gotten their acts together and gone on to win the last 3 games, of course this has done little to help the 4th place Mets as the Phillies, Marlins and Braves have all been winning their games as well. I think its safe to say the NL east is nearly unstoppable for the time being.
The frustration continues as a Red Sox fan. My boys have been playing superbly, unfortunately they too can't catch a break with the god forsaken Yankees hitting win streak after win streak. Let's see what happens this weekend when the 2 rivals meet.
This blogger made a wager with an old friend that if her beloved Sox are victorious after this weekend he is to buy me a New Red Sox jersey, if the opposite occurs i am to wear a Yankee jersey at Fenway on August 10th. Something that for the sake of not combusting into flames before the fans kill I hope does NOT happen.



"The Citi Field streaker, his naked ambition finally fulfilled, emerged fully clothed and completely unapologetic Wednesday after a night behind bars.
Craig Coakley, a Mets cap on his head, flashed two thumbs up after posting $1,000 bail for his midgame romp with only a stuffed monkey around his waist.
"It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience," said Coakley, 29, of Whitestone, Queens. "Let's go, Mets!"
Coakley declined to discuss his Tuesday night slide into second base.
His sister said Coakley had planned the fifth-inning foray for eight years. His boss at a Floral Park plumbing company said the streaker proclaimed his plans before leaving work.
"He said, 'I'm probably not going to be in tomorrow,'" recalled John Musella of Tri-County Plumbing. "And I said, 'You're out of your mind.'"
Coakley has one regret from his escapade: a sore backside. "I was sleeping on it all night," he said.
An order of protection barred Coakley from returning to Citi Field pending a June 11 court date. He could face up to a year in jail and a fine of $5,000."

The funny thing is that I'm from Floral Park and know John Musella it seems these, days my town can't stay out of the news.

Alright all ready!!!!

So all these injuries, were cute when they started. Don't right comical back in may actually. I'm a sprained finger to the backup short stop? So now here we are in the second half of the season, and in less than a week since the All Star break, which was supposed to return to us at least 2 out of our 5 big names on the DL, instead Manuel is finding himself scrambling after Gary Sheffield has hurt his hammie, and now Neive seemingly hurt a leg muscle running to first in just the 2nd inning of his tour of duty on the mound. At this point it's safe to say that Castillo, Wright and Murphy have ticking time bombs, only a matter of time before we find the ENTIRE team needing a backup.

Count on my fellow METS fans to BOO the Home Run Apple for not rising after Fernando Tatis' HR. APPLE APPLE APPLE... Apparently it takes 45 seconds for it to recharge and rise between appearances

So as the fans continue chanting "We want Apple!" It brings me back to the days when the first blue prints of Citi Field were released, and we could no readily identify where the apple would be or if there even would be one (http://www.savetheapple.com/).

It's amazing to see how much that Apple means to us. Only in NY would an apple get a standing ovation! The Mets home run apple arrived at Shea Stadium in 1980. The original apple was about 9 ft wide and weighed over 500 pounds". The original apple also came accompanied by a top hat bearing the words "Home Run" the hat was representative of the 1980 season slogan "The magic is back". As seen today, it has come to the point that Mets fans prefer to see their beloved apple rise in center field rather than pay attention to the batter rounding the bases or curtain calling at the dugout.

Sorry RSN

Sorry RSN for failing to really comment on the status of my beloved Red Sox. However with recent headlines all covering the sudden death of the King of Pop, and the Mets taking me on such an emotional roller coaster as well as preparations to a week long vacation, I have found it very difficult to keep track of my out of town team. I'm just glad that the Red Sox have made it easy for me by staying on top of things. I'm the kind of fan that pays extra attention to their team when times are tough, I know they got the bandwagon for when things are going well.

I would like to take this moment to congratulate Left fielder Jason Bay on becoming a US citizen today. Canadian born Bay was sworn in today at Faneuil Hall in Boston. In an interview he stated that he is proud of his dual citizenship and that although he is now an American "it doesn't mean I cease being Canadian. I'll always be Canadian."

Still hanging on...

As most of us in Mets Mundo know, this has not been an easy week for the orange and blue. After getting swept at home by our cross town big brothers and then losing 2 more to the Brewers, many were ready to count the Mets out. I must admit even I was on the verge of giving up. That's when I came up with the brilliant idea to get a rally going, last year when the Mets all shaved their heads, they went red hot and got some big W's on the board. So since I can't personally go out and shave David Wright's head, I did the next best thing. I took my lil dog Mookie to the groomer yesterday and got him the shortest cut possible, and low and behold the Met have rallied to win their last 2 games.

After and intensely difficult week, the Mets are currently 1 game back in second place due to a tie for first between Florida and Philadelphia. So to all of those talking trash, the Mets are not too shabby! So here's wishing all of you a great 4th of July weekend, especially those of you traveling down to Philly for the series. Who knows after this weekend the Mets can be 2 games up on the Phillies!!! Wouldn't that be great, now that would really deserve fireworks, here's hoping Hernandez, Nieve and Santana can all get the job done, oh and hopefully K-Rod doesn't need TOO much rest after throwing 46 pitches over 2 innings today.
