Wait, thunderstorms are in the forecast here in New York...

There's an old joke.  Uh, two elderly women are at a Catskills mountain resort, and one of 'em says: "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible."  The other one says, "Yeah, I know, and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life.  Full of loneliness and misery and suffering  and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly.

--Alvy Singer.

Keep your head up, Willie.  The worst is over.  And we still love ya.

Alvy Singer, 2008 NY Mets Bench Coach:

A baseball club, I think, is like a shark. You know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.

There are times during discussions here (and elsewhere) when I've wished I could produce Marshall McLuhan from behind a billboard.

Willie is a class act and therefore doesn't fit in with the Mets organization.

0 On last night's Seinfeld, Jerry takes his date (who has the same dress on as when they met) into a restaurant and tells her "The food here is terrible, but they have the best busboys in the city." : )
Did anyone catch the end of that Rice-LSU game? Man, I would love to go to Omaha one of these summers. There always seems to be jaw dropping happenings afoot. (No offense)

3 Firing Willie after he had already traveled to the west coast and after a win (so there's no possible argument that a loss to the Angels was the "last straw") was a really shitty move. I'd be surprised if the Mets don't just mail in the rest of 2008.
