Some Video Distractions

Take a trip around you tube to distract yourself from this awful world series.

Phillie Phanatic Dresses Down David Wright



Highlights: None.

Game Six 1986, NLCS Mets vs. Astros, End of the 16th inning



Highlights: Kevin Bass swinging over Orosco's breaking ball, absolutely atrocious Astro uniforms, Tim McCarver playing with his hair, Len Dykstra in his more articulate days swigging champagne.

Gary Carter pretends to read



Highlights: Gary's acting, socks.

Post Season NY fan infestation



Highlights: This one's made the rounds already, but if you missed it. Yankee fan ticket scalper in the bedroom:"but if you're buying..."

And just for the hell of it:

    This Philly business is really getting me down. These Tampa Bay guys are playing like.....well, METS, for crying out loud. Phillie phanatic is my favorite mascot. Does that get me banned from something? I cannot believe that a town as rough and tough as NYC could sport a mascot like Mr. Baseball Head.

    how can you hate on Mr Met? especially when you favor a giant booger? Mr Met is the only "classic" thing we have, besides the orange and blue colors we stole.

    I still hold out for a Ray of hope. In 1911 they had rainouts of the series for 6 days. This clearly shows the baseball gods do not want Filly to win.

    Mr. Met doesn't do anything. He is pathetic. He is like a Disney character. I liked Homer better than Mr. Met. Couldn't we dress some loon up in a Homer suit? Have him do some shtick. Don;t you think the Phillies look at Mr. Met and feel superior to us? Now a Homer, frothing at the mouth, might just change that opinion.

    I LOVE Mr Met. He is sort of Chaplinesque, I think.

    I had not seen the infestation video - totally great. Thanks for posting it.

    Sorry to have been incommunicado. I am in Ohio working for BHO. Is anything happening in Metland? I have avoided the sports pages like the plague.

    Ugh, those sports pages are mighty hard to look at. But the Philme's phlapping lips are just going to make the poetic retribution that much sweeter. Someday.
