Let’s Go Mets!

If I had one lucid moment as I thrashed about on my deathbed, chances are excellent that I’d ask if the Mets had won that day.   I am a 100% over-the-top, passionate, obsessive, dedicated baseball fan. It’s in my genes and in my blood, and I make no apologies. 

Today is, hands down, one of my absolute favorite days of the year. Spring training has ended, and the season begins in earnest today!  I’ve got a spring in my step and a song in my heart, and as long as I’m sprouting clichés, how about some more that describe how I feel on the first day of the 2010 NY Mets’ season?  Off the top of my head:

Hope springs eternal;

Every team starts off the year 0-0;

Baseball isn’t played on paper--it’s played between the lines;

Games are played one at a time; and

A chain only as strong as its weakest link.  OK, maybe that one’s a little scary for Mets’ fans.

I am not alone; I am part of millions of equally besotted fans waiting for the games to start and magic to happen.  Heck, even G-d was a baseball fan; she’s the one that first mentioned “In the big inning…”

I love your enthusiasm! Plus you threw in a gender joke and a pun while you were at it. Not a bad way to start a Monday.
