TODAY IN METS:
My buddy Slanch has a really sportsy blog, which I enjoy but don't entirely "get" all the time. I was jealous that I could not also write sports posts. But tonight we were all watching the Mets together and this amazing thing happened:
Shot: Pitcher Duaner Sanchez winds up. He is wearing a dusty hat.
Keith Hernandez: That hat has seen some wars!
Gary Cohen: Peloponnesian?
Take a moment.
In the moment of banter around a dusty hat Gary Cohen brought up which war?
I am astounded.
And David Wright got a sweet hit in the top of the 9th that tied the game!
I fucking love baseball.
