It's quite all right with me. I always throw a "3B" party every October, in honor of Bucky, Buckner and Boone! :)

It's always the way. Of all the crazy Met fans I knew back in 1986, my dad is on of the only ones left. Of course, he was a Mets fan back in 1961 when they were Amazingly bad. Uhh, the Mets' first season was '62.

My coffee's never tasted better, the sun's never shone as bright, my wife has never looked more pretty...there is absolutely nothing that can go wrong today! It seems Alex has been true to his word about sticking to baseball and shedding all of the other c**p in his life. He looks like a man with something to prove.

Anyone see the Jim Rice quote regarding Jeter? Classy guy, that Rice. http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/llws09/news/story?id=4414291

Hey, I've got a dog just like that one. His name is "2008 Yankees."

Yeah, I watched that clip with my boy three times last night. Truly incredible catch. RE: broadcasters - Vin Scully wrote the book on how to handle scenarios such as this. If you haven't yet, you owe it to yourself to listen to the last inning of Koufax's perfect game vs. the Cubs. Poetic.

Very nice article, Mark. I'm looking forward to my first trip to the new Stadium next month.

It is a great ballpark. I saw my first MLB game there, vs. the Giants. Glad you had a good time. I went to the Mariners/Padres game last Thursday, hoping to see Junior again, but alas, he didn't play in a 9-3 M's rout of the Friars.

Boy, did everyone's Wheaties get peed in this morning or what??? My prediction, if they get the game in: Cervelli goes 3 for 4, with an HR and a RBI double. Joba's gonna go 8, allow 1 run on five hits. Mo will close. Yanks win 5-1. (or not...)

Hate to say it, but you're dead on regarding Matsui. I love the guy, but he looks like he needs a walker to get up to the plate. His swing looks like c**p.

Has Tex's homer landed yet? God, what a blast! It looked like he hit it up towards the handle too.

"Mark Teixeira's "I just hit on your wife" at-bat face..." BINGO!!! I've been trying to define for myself exactly what he looks like at bat...this is the perfect description! And, if he keeps hitting like he's been, he can hit on MY wife for all I care. No, wait...strike that. :)

Heading for home now to get caught up with Krueg's beer count. Starting your second case, now, are you? :) Enjoy the game, all (both?)

Well, if you want to talk hockey, I agree with you on Les Habs and the Bruins. My Rangers bring new meaning to the word "choke" though. :(
