Food, folks, and fun. Except for the losing part.
Last night was the first in a week flush with Metsies events. For the photo album, click here! A gaggle of intrepid Mets bloggers gathered at The Blind Pig to watch what I was so sure would be an exciting win. Anyway.
The Vote For Mr. Met boys were there to provide Vote For Mr. Met t-shirts. I’ll be wearing mine tonight at the "Mets at the Movies" event at the Ziegfeld. Have you voted yet!? If not, do now at mascothalloffame.com. You’ve got ’til Sept. 1. Vote often. Mr. Met needs you.
Also in attendance last night were Mets Grrl and her TBF, Coop, Matt from Metsblog, Regis from Metsblog and Mets Heads and his (ahem) Yankees fan buddy, and Will from Smear the Q.u.e.e.r (a great blog! And another word I had no idea Mlblogs bleeped out!) and his trash-talking buddy.
Oy, bullpen. Bullllllpen. Bats. Starers at balls that don’t go foul. Come onnnnn. We’re almost at September. Get your game on! On the other hand, congrats to Carlos D, and I’ll hope he keeps up the hotness.
Although we gave Big Mota his props after a successful 1-2-3 9th inning, much of our bloggy group collectively freaked out when Willie left him in to pitch the 10th. Come on, Willie. I love you, but Just Say No to Mota for a 2nd inning! Here’s what Will had to say to watching Mota pitch.
It wasn’t just Mota. As I told Matt, I’m not too worried about the standings. I’m worried about the spirit of a team that can’t put together wins against its biggest division rivals. Spark up the fire, Metsies. We need you to feel like winners going into October.
We need you to find your swagger again.
If you’ll be at the Ziegfeld tonight for Mets at the Movies, look for the gal in her Vote For Mr. Met t-shirt and say hi! I’ll be there with Coop, so drop her a holla too.
I’ll leave you with this pic of Regis and Matt, because Regis thinks they both look "cool." (It’s possible he has yet to learn that I tease gently and with affection.)
