Let the day beginLet the horror startLet the fury swellLet the skies all cryLet the day begin !!Let The Day Begin - SamhainWell at least part of this nightmare is over but we all know the pain is gonna fester for the next five months due to The Yankee fans self righteous back patting, partying and smugness while they rub it in our collective faces . for the next five months we will endure chants of " 27 World Championships!!' and " LET GO YANKEES!!" while we angrily bite our tongues - but we are Met Fans - its our lot in lifeSo congratulations to the Yankees and their fans. And I hope Omar, Jeff and Fred were watching every game of this World Series and I hope they are forced to watch the ticker tape parade down the Canyon Of Heroes. I hope they feel the pain that us Mets Fans feel. But I should know better !!                                                                                                                                                               yankees_strike_back.jpg  Okay here comes the Infamy !!!Happy Birthday to a pitcher from the awful mid '60's teams -Jim Bethke (1946)Backup first baseman for the '74-'75 team -Brock Pemberton is 56 (1953)Late season call up for the '83 team - Mike Bishop is 51 (1958)Reliever for the '05 team -José Santiago is 35 (1974) .New York Mets released reliever , Randy Jones on November 5, 1982.
