A Faceplant for All Seasons

It was, for the most part, a weekend to forget for the Mets. Particularly Sunday, when Jon Niese, Elmer Dessens, and Oliver Perez conspired to make a mockery of any Belief in Comebacks. As far as playoff dreams go, I am a die-harder. If fandom were World War II, I’d be one of those guys still hiding in a cave in the South Pacific with grenades 20 years later. But this weekend was the straw that broke this camel’s back. I’ve passed from disgust to acceptance of yet another lost season.

However, there is one thing I will take with me from this otherwise soul crushing series against the Diamondbacks. During Friday night’s comeback win that wasn’t, at the conclusion of the sixth inning, SNY cut from the action on the field to the Shea Bridge in centerfield. Then, as the kids say, hilarity ensued.

If the 2010 Mets give me nothing else–and all signs point to them giving me nothing else–they will have given me this.
