Well there is less than two months until Spring Training begins and three months until Opening Day yet the Mets still have yet to unfurl a slogan for the upcoming season.
I figured that I would submit 5 possible slogans to the Mets and see if they liked any of them enough to mount a campaign with.
Here are the 5 in no particular order.
5. ” Crazy Freddie – His Opening Day ticket prices are INSANE !!!”
4. ” 2013 - Come See concerts by the likes Survivor, Loverboy and Peter Limoncello !”
3. “2013 – Outfielders – We don’t need no stinking outfielders !”
2. ” I have a fever – And it needs more Cowgil !”
1 And lastly “ It’s like 1983 again – but with no Hernandez or Seaver !”
Needless to say I have yet to hear back from the Mets yet .
If you feel you have a better slogan – please leave it in the comment section !
And with that said…. HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
Utility infielder from ’64-’65, Bobby Klaus is 75 (1937) .
Reserve outfielder from’ 02-’03, Raul Gonzalez is 39 (1973) .
Starting pitcher from the ’02 season, Jeff D’Amico is 37 (1975).
The New York Mets traded pitcher, Kevin Appier to the Anaheim Angels for first baseman, Mo Vaughn on December 27, 2001. And thus the floodgate of Mo Vaughn joke burst open like Mo at an ” All You Can Eat” Chinese food buffet !
The New York Mets signed free agent reserve shortstop, Rey Sanchez of the Boston Red Sox on December 27, 2002. Unfortunately Sanchez was a better barber than shortstop – and that’s not saying much !
Mo Vaughn got a years supply of Toblerone for Christmas – he polished the last of the chocolaty confection 5 minutes after receiving it !
