Where is the moment when you need it the most (Carlos looking at a called strike three,Valentin leaving the bases loaded)
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
Tell me your blue sky’s (Endy Chavez’s # 1 catch ever) fade to grey (Celebration)
Tell me your passion’s gone away (Jets football season)
And I don’t need no carryin’ on
You’re standin’ in line just to hit a new low (While waiting to leave, i got hit with two towels)
You’re fakin’ a smile with the coffee to go
Tell me your life’s been way off line (Live and die with the mets)
You’re fallin’ to pieces every time
And I don’t need no carryin’ on
‘Cause you had a bad day, you’re taking one down (Oct 19,2006)
You sing a sad song just to turn it around (Singing the sun will come up tomorrow)
You say you don’t know, you tell me don’t lie
You work on a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day, the camera don’t lie
You’re comin’ back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day… you had a bad day
Well you need a blue sky holiday (St Thomas getaway)
The point is they laugh at what you say (Yankees ****)
And I don’t need no carryin’ on
You had a bad day, you’re takin’ one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know, you tell me don’t lie
You work on a smile and you go for a ride (I tried to smile, but frowned all night)
You had a bad day, the camera don’t lie (I was on the news)
You’re comin’ back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day…(mmm… holiday)
Sometimes the system goes on the blink and the whole thing it turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know that you could be well all that strong
And I’m not wrong… (Yeahh!!) (Mets 6 months away )
So where is the passion when you need it the most
(oh, when you’re down)
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
‘Cause you had a bad day, you’re takin’ one down (Oct 19,2006)
You sing a sad song just to turn it around (The sun will come up tomorrow)
You say you don’t know, you tell me don’t lie (We lost?)
You work on a smile and you go for a ride (wont smile until November)
You had a bad day, you see what you like ( A world series ring)
And how does it feel, one more time, (like someone kicked me in the nuts)
You had a bad day… you had a bad day (We lost ?, Am i dreaming)
You had a bad day 3x (Times 80)
WOW, I never thought my first game 7 of my life would end up this way. Endy made a spectacular catch and we lost as our offense once again was inefffective. I was actually happy because i was interviewed by FOX before the game in the parking lot so ill try and add the video on here.
Wow, i never honestly thought the mets would pull it towards a game 7. J/K I knew it all along lol i bleed the orange and blue just like all the other mets fans and hopefully tomorrow night we can conclude this with a nice win and head towards the world series for the first time since 2000. I really didnt believe tonight with all of the magic at Shea that the season would end on such a down note so heres to everyone who brought out the orange and blue tonight and will once again wear it tomorrow for the hopeful final game of this nlcs with the tilt heading towards the mets advantage. I really don’t know if the mets pitching stacks up with the cards but i can tell you one thing that does stack up even better and that is their heart’s. The mets heart’s have been one unlike any other as the mets are coming from behind, down 2-1, 3-2 and now have a chance to come back and win the series tomorrow night and not even do it in brilliant fashion but the most important thing is that they will do it and we all must still believe.
Last night’;s game was crazy, As soon as Jose (VIVA LA DOMINICANO) came up and blasted a lead off shot into the right center field fence the mets never looked back and i dont even want to get into that half call by the umpire gary darling tonight as he blatantly blew that call along with the other umpires who have been squeezing the mets this series. So heres to you Mr. Darling, a big nice F U from all of the mets fans. But anyways besides my profanity there was a lot of profanity laced at my tv tonight and i will be in attendence thanks to my good friend Mr Cruz, a nice person who gave me 2 seats for the best game (hopefully ever). So he will always have a permanent place in my heart for giving me these seats and i told him i owe him a favor so once again thank you.
But David needs to get back on track on tonight as he is not doing that well but i expect him to show up tomorrow and pound the ball to all fields and i dont worry about what can happen with the mets tomorrow. I hope Oliver Perez pitches well for a few innings as i know the mets will pull all out the stops to try and win the game and head to the world series. GOD-All i am asking is one last win lol well this win and then 4 more but for now please grant me my one wish. I am very involved with charity work and all im asking is for a little charity to make the mets win one more game and let me see this team in the world series please, im begging you. But lets all pray tonight that the mets give us one more thing to cheer about as we can all pray for a victory and i can pray to watch the world series this year from shea stadium so God please accept my apologies for all of the sinning and cursing during this season and please give me that victory tomorrow. I have been a very good child growing up (Besides stealing all of the candy from my parents) I am grown up (Not really) But i really dont want to have to write about the mets invading the Yankees golf tourneyment so please let me keep on wrighting about the best team known in NY and of course im talking about the orange and blue and the team that rocks oh so wright, Jeez okay im done praying but please everyone get ready for tomorrow night by showing the orange and blue as will i like usual.
So ill leave everyone with this, I hope i can come back blogging tomorrow night at 4 am after the game all drunk and happy and can blog about a championship, If they lose ill be in jail after smacking or driving my car into anything red.
Okay so the mets lost tonight game 5 and are down 3 games to 2. Its not over yet and just remember that we swept the Card’s at home and can do it again. I know its tough with our backs against the wall but we will do it and you gotta believe. I am not in a good mood after tonight’s game but we have to believe and bleed the orange and blue.
Wow the mets needed to win that game last night and they really did slap the Cardinals around like they should have the previous 3 games. Does everyone like the heading of the post? Yeah i was going nuts last night when our two Puerto Rican Boys were slapping the Card’s pitching around like a bunch of girls. Wait you can also add in our other Puerto Rican friend Jose Valentin who doubled down the left field line and if further proving my point to when the series comes back to shea to make me order the super stasch look to counter attack that guy who wears the red little soul patch and thinks hes a big guy. Do you know who should wear a red one as well? Alex Rodriguez, Maybe it will help his dreadful postseason hitting,Maybe we should fit him for a pink one because it would match his frosted hair and fit him well..Speaking of the yankees i will get to the Yankees Golf Classic shortly but for now i must speak about D WRIGHT!!! I know he only got 1 hit yesterday but it was surely a big one when he mashed a home run to left and gave the mets a brief 2-1 lead but the lead later on in the game was not so brief with our boys slamming home run’s, double’s, single’s and just doign what we wanted all series so far.
Led by Carlos (VIVA LA PUERTO RICO) Delgago and Carlos (VIVA LA PUERTO RICO) Beltran, the mets offense was in high gear. Maybe its better that our offense wake up tonight so we can fit Jeff (Im so afraid to pitch against this team after last night) Weaver for that nice Orange and Blue dress. He can also cook our friends (the mets) some food so we can have a nice meal after the game when we head back to shea stadium for game 6. I was very excited yesterday to see our team win a big well monster game last night, we were down and out after losing the previous two games but the Cards are not beating the best team in baseball 3 straight games at home, not now not never. I was screaming VIVA LA PUERTOOO RICO all night long as i needed this win as yesterday was a great day to be a NY fan as the Jets won (Who when i was at the game was chanting DAVID WRIGHT and some people joined in with a few people also chanting ***** at the end and then i told them what times the yankee game on? and they kept quiet) and the mets won which made me 40 times more happy than the jets game. Now onto the leaderboard which will be short because the preorder world series seats now and i need some time to myself.
1st Annual Yankee Golf Classic Leaderboard
Well the third round and final round was a good one but got suspended by rain and now will look forward to a resumed round 3 but here was the action so far. Alex Rodriguez just plummeted down the into the woods and kept missing shot after shot towards the green and is now a + 9 for the tourney (During the 3rd round, George Steinbrenner tryed to trade Alex for Mr Met but Mr Met declined happily) Derek Jeter climbed up the leaderboard to -9 as he had a good half 3rd round. Randy Johnson still cannot find his clubs and is now + 49 as he just simply cannot find the green with any of his attempts he also tore a tee of the hinges and threw it and cursed wildly. Mike Mussina also had a good showing as he moved to -7 during this rain shortned round. Other competitors who did well were ching bing dang who somehow hit his way into the top 5 and is now at -3,Johnny Damon who has been not playing well hit the ball good today and moved into 7th with -1. Bernie Williams also made a good showing by putting well and moved into 6th with -2. But the story of the tourneyment is MR.MET, Mr Met came down flying in his newest favirote plane, the Wright Flight. David was not in attendence as he actually has meaningful baseball to take care of but Mr Met rode the Wright Flight to Augusta and took time out of his scheduled shlackings to the Card’s mascot. Mr.Met walked up to the first 6 holes and dramactically while wearing the team, the time the MASCOT t shirt, drilled 4 hole in one’s and two eagles to go to -30 in the tourneyment and even though he can’t talk he pulled a sign out which calls out Tiger Wood’s to play him. Mr Met before leaving the golf course, Shot the t shirt cannon gun at 8 players of the yankees and even one went all the way into the woods and hit a needle more into Giambi’s arm and he came out all angry and beat up a caddy, What a team this yankee team is kind of reminds me of the team when we had Shane Spencer and Karim Garcia beating up a pizza delivery boy, good times. Okay now the leaderboard looks like this. Remember your voted will generate who wins the tourney and it looks like Mr Met is a runaway so far.
Mr-Met- 30, Mike Mussina -3, Derek Jeter -7, Chin bing dang -2, Johnny Demon -1, Bernie Williams -1, A-rod +9, Randy Johnson +49.
BLEED THE ORANGE AND BLUE FOR THE METS TONIGHT AND SHOW YOUR PRIDE.
Well i never thought i would say this but the season as of right now seems to be hanging by threads. Willie mismanaged game 2 by leaving Mota in too long even while when Willie went to visit Mota on the mound and Mota was not focused by dazing at the ground (Willie should have pulled him then) but i guess its all for naught now as the Mets face a game 4, a very big game 4 with a throw in pitcher from the trade with Pirates for Nady. The mets will seem to try and pull out all the stops tonight and i mean all of them because this is the biggest game of the season so far. I have lived and will die with this team and i bleed blue and orange so we really need to come out firing and that means by firing on all cylinders. David Wright who has 0 hits in this series needs to step it up and i think thats the first time i said that all year. Other people who need to step up are Jose Valentin, Shawn Green, Oh yeah and the guy who only hit 8 home run’s two postseasons ago Carlos Beltran. Beltran who really is struggling now i know he got a hit yesterday and i know he hit the game winning home run in game 1 of the series, But i know everyone didnt forget that monster postseason he had two years ago in his contract year. If he didnt have that monster home run barrage for Houston, He would have gotten at least 15 million dollars less on his contract so Carlos please step up and win this game along with David and even Cliffy, Cliffy come back now lol we need your power bat in the lineup,I know your hobbling but so was i at one point and i came back to my softball team granted i dont have the same god given ability as Floyd but its the season in real baseball that matters now and we need all are guns tonight and we need to let off all the bullets in the chamber. This is the game which can quite possibly change the whole series so after pre-ordering my world series tickets, Please mets bring us back and show why i spend so much money every year on jerseys, tickets, beer.
David,I know i sound like a backstabber but you need to drive the ball like you did as evidenced by your 311 average and 116 rbi’s. I will not resort to calling you A-rod just yet but you are all of our hero’s the whole team and like i said i live and die by the orange and blue. Please oh Please slap around that rookie pitcher tonight and show them where you guys are representing.You know what? I hate Scott Spiezo and i hate that stupid little red soul patch all those fans are wearing. Maybe when and if we get back to Shea for a game 6 we should all sport the Super Stasch look of Jose Valentin to counter attack the Cards approach but guys please bring the series back to Shea.
GET OUT AND BLEED THE ORANGE AND BLUE TODAY TO SHOW SUPPORT!
First off lets all give Corey Lidle a moment of silence for what occured yesterday. He was truly a person of the game and even though he played for a lot of teams, He still made a lot of people around baseball recall glad memories of him pitching and playing jokes so i just wanted to say thank you Cory for being a part of the MLB fraternity and i want to wish his family a speedy recovery and hope everything can go smooth with everything. I really dont know what to say about the process but i know he had a 6 year old child and i can think in my head how hard that must be on the family and i pray and keep him in my wishes all week,month, year. So Cory, God speed.
Now onto to the Yankee Leaderboard updated live from Augusta. In the 2ncd hole, A-Rod pulled a triple bogey and is now at minus 5. George Steinbrenner on his golden golf cart watching near by asks Arod, Can you do anything clutch? (A-rod proceeded to then miss 4 five foot puts which puts him at minus 2 on the tourneyment. (George Steinbrenner then drives away and gets ready to look for Giambi,Sheffield who are still M.I.A in the woods ). Now onto the 17th hole where Mike Mussina is ahead of the leaderboard with a minus 9, Is still seeming to stroke the ball better than most yankees did in he alds is now getting pumped by doing a Tiger Woods fist pump and exciting the 9 people who actually showed up and watched this debacle of a toureyment of losers (The other 2.1 million Yankee fans have called the suicide hotline and are no where to be found as well). The Captain is now closing in on the lead as he moved up to -6 with a strong second round showing. At the bottom of the leaderboard is Randy Johnson with a plus 20 as he just keeps breaking golf clubs after hitting the ball towards the trees. Oh my god, We have a new player in the tourneyment, Its MR MET! Oh jeez here he comes with his orange and blue golf clubs, Its like he loves to crash partys or events this guy, No one will say anything because hes 7 feet tall. But Mr Met is here just to try and win a Yankee sponsered event just to try and pull another title back to the better side of town. Heres Mr Met, Who will play with a handicap of 10 starts off his first hole attempt with a 475 foot drive and then gets a putt in and now onto his second hole as he is 2 under already with that massive drive. Hole 2- Mr Met crushed one towards the hole and its a hole in one. Mr Met is already at minus 6 and realizes that the game is about to start at shea and he runs off in his met mobile and heads back to shea all the way from Augusta. (God Hes dedicated). Okay so heres the leaderboard. Mussina is -9, Jeter -6,Mr Met -6, Arod- 2, Rivera -1, Cairo -1,B.Williams -1, J Damon E, Abreu E, R Johnson +20, Giambi-DNF,Sheffield -DNF. I will have a more updated leaderboard soon but i have changed the poll to who is your choice to win the golf tourneyment so please vote early and often as i will adjust the leaderboards to your votes.
Now onto to the mets Game tonight, SOME ONE PLEASE GET THAT BLUE AND ORANGE DRESS READY FOR Jeff Weaver…..GO METS AND START THIS OFF WRIGHT!!!

Jeff Weaver and the Cards…VS The Team, The Time, The NL EAST Champions Mets…Wait Not the Yankees…..They are Golfing……
Well Its time for game one of the NL Championship and the beating in which will ensue. Jeff Weaver pitches for the cards and in his last start vs the mets, In which Delgado blasted his 400th home run, a grand slam mind you in a game i was at when the Cards took a 7-0 lead behind pujols 2 home run’s. But this time it will be different and i am not talking about the final score. The Mets will be on a carosel of rounding the bases and the Cardinals will need to look to that bullpen often and early i nthis series as i predict the mets will win in 5 games. And please Jeff Weaver, after tomorrow someone get him a blue and orange dress to wear and do we all know why he will have a blue and orange dress to wear? Because hes going to become the Mets *****. Yes i said it, I usually dont use cursing and lewdness other than when talking about Arod and the yankees but for this reason and this reason alone i will resort to it. Jeff Weaver will get hammered (Hopefuly) and the mets will cruise to a victory because i really would love nothing else but to see the mets take a 1-0 series lead after tomorrow.
David Wright has been mashing lately. Well David Wright has been mashing all season long and it will continue tomorrow against Weaver and those Red Guys. So heres my prediction for tomorrow. Mets 19- Cardinals -2. Negative two how you ask? Well simple, they will be getting beat so bad, It will feel like Negative 2. Lets all hope tomorrow we can all be blogging about how good that victory will taste. And please all you fake yankee fans who say, O well i am going for the mets. We dont want that. I hate your team and root against them every year but it seems this year you guys will be wearing out your golf clubs while my team wears out the opposing teams pitchers so please dont root for the mets.
Also, I just wanted to give the updated leaderboards for the first annual yankee classic being held on one of the local golfcourses. Alex Rodriguez is a strong -10 after the second round followed closely by Mike Mussina who is a -8. Derek Jeter isnt too far behind with a -4 and someone hasnt found Jason Giambi or Gary Sheffiled because they have been in the woods juicing up in the offseason.
Tonight at the Ranger game David Wright, Paul Loduca, Chris Woodward,Tom Glavine were all in attendance. Thanks to my two brothers who were there and actually booing them when shown on the tv. See they are Yankee and Red Sox fans so they should be appearing in one of those Tommy Lasorda commercials soon with hiding in a cabinet or something like that.
The David Watch is updated and sponsered by Nike Golf Clubs, the golf club choice of the New York Yankees.
David will go 2-4 tomorrow and feast on Jeff Weavers suspect pitching.
Mets 2-0 and Game Three Annnnd THHHHHHHHAAAAAA YANKKKKKKKKKKEEEES LOOOOOOOSSSSSEEEEEEEE…..THHHHHHHEEEE YANKKKKEEES LLLLOOOOSSSEEE
200 Million Dollar plus payroll gets you what? A BIG FAT LOSSS IN THE PLAYOOFFFFFFFFS….This is such a great feeling to be in NY in which most if not all of them predicted the Yanks would bring home their 27th world title and the mets would be knocked out early….Hmmm how sweet fate is as this is turning into a great weekend for Mets fans and just watching and hearing the yankee fans cry all around the streets. Here is a real conversation in which 2 yankee fans had on the street, Hey Joey- Did you see that Yankee game yesterday? Yeah Bobby i saw it, I cant believe we are losing to the Tigers. Bobby- What about that bum Arod? He sure does stink. Joey- Ya know what put me in that situation ill hit better than arod.
GOTTTTA LOVE THE YANKEE FANS NOW A DAYS. As i speak, 2000 17 yr olds are ripping their Yankee decals off their cars and replacing it with the number 26 as to reference of their championships. I find it quite funny to hear all of them complain so much about how much Torre should be fired and they should dismantle the team. You guys are not real fans for all of you yankee fans who complain. You live and die with your team and even though we lost 2 major parts of the rotation, You still have to believe thats why we are still around and you guys will be packing your golf bags. Remember Arod and Derek, dont forget the 9 irons.
I know many yankee fans used to read my blog and say how much of a better team you have. I just find it quite funny that you guys just got slapped around well almost as worse as arod gets slapped around by his little boyfriend Derek Jeter in bed. Maybe thats the real reason why you guys cant beat the tigers, I understand that but dont say Torre should be fired. He won 4 world titles and even mets fans admit that he is a good manager. I really am very excited right now. I have dreamt about the yankee fans all crying and the mets hopefully bringing the title back to the good side of ny would be a amazing feeling. We should come up with some new Arod nicknames now. i heard 1-8 rod, I heard Pay-Rod, Double play rod, E-rod, Touching Derek’s- Rod, But i didnt here this one around, Elimated-Rod because that is what the yankees will be and i dont want to hear any of you fans for the rest of the year so go back into hiding with your car covered yankee decals and your Giambi Jerseys and your Yankee hats and go into the closet and get out your badwagoning mets hats. Its okay, well frankly its not, we dont want any frontrunners .
Now onto the real team of NY, You know the one that is stillaround, The new york mets. Yeah we play tonight at 8 with a chance to sweep so get ready mets fans to wake up early tomorrow and grab a NY Post or Daily News just to read about hopefully the mets advancement into the NLCS and the Yankees Disadvancement( Is that a proper word) Into the 36 hole course in ny in which Derek i heard has a sweet putting game. The mets send Steve Traschel against Greg Maddux. Hopefully the train can stay on the trax today (Like that dont you) and the mets can finish off the Nomar-Less Dodgers. Now keep in mind that David Wright is hitting a cool 458 in his career at Dodger stadium. So look for David and the mets to feast on that RHP and bring home the sweep and with some added rest and waiting for the Cardinals.
But as for now, i will go get ready for the real team of NY and please dont tell me that i shouldnt predict the Yankees game being over yet, Because its been over since Game 2, Someone find the Yankees Offense for me as it is missing in action for the past 2 games. And also someone go find A-Rod’s golden golf clubs to get ready.
