Foam Finger Figueroa Fun

Sunday: What a great day at Shea!

Do I have any James Bond fans in the house? Imagine Shriley Bassey…as a Mets fan.

Foam Finger
It’s the team, the team with the pretty win.
See, they still win.
Such a home finger
You say where are the cheers at Shea?
But not today.

Anyone who doesn’t love Nelson Figueroa is dead inside. The feel-good story of the season came through for us again, prompting the music powers-that-be at Shea to let us know we were “Gettin’ Figgy with it.”

Picture 022-1.jpgAnd how ’bout that Ryan Church?? Ever see a ball in the outfield that Carlos Beltran can’t catch? Ryan did! Man, that 7th inning Beltran-slides-Church-strides catch had the stands roaring in appreciation. Church jogged back to the dugout alongside Beltran to thunderous applause.

Picture 025-1.jpgBut the story of the day you’ll hear most about, of course, was Carlos Delgado’s 2-home run extravaganza. After the first one, Mets buddy Rob next to me said “I can see his smile all the way from here.” Matty’s doing a great job of covering “CurtainCallgate,” which unfortunately seems to be eclipsing the coverage that Hey, we won the rubber game against a crucial rival. Against John Smoltz, whose ERA was under 1 at the beginning of the game. We scored in multiple innings to keep the lead throughout the whole game.

It was pretty baseball. I missed pretty baseball.

Picture 031-1.jpgAnd as for my own two cents, if Delgado’s going to explain that he didn’t do a curtain call because he respects the game too much to show boat, I’m fine with that.

I will so be rocking my friggin’ foam finger in the future, folks.

I’m kinda jealous of the foam finger… I may need to make a quick stop at the Mets shop next time I’m at Shea :-)

I’m so over the Delgado discussion. Everybody needs to build a bridge and get over it.

Got my Mets purse today! So excited… it’s just big enough for my (small) wallet and my camera –perfect! Thanks again for your shopping suggestions!

That thing is huge! Of course I’m out of town for Foam Finger Day, sheesh :p
