Howdy, y’all. They really do talk like that down here. Coming to you from the press box at Minute Maid Park, where most of the lights are off. Saving money, I guess, to pay Roger’s contract.
I used to work down here when I first got out of college. Got the boots and jeans, but always felt like a damn Yankee. Grabbed lunch on the way to the park. BBQ all weekend. By the time I leave here Monday, if I cut myself I will bleed sauce.
A very important game tonight for your Mets. Tom Glavine is pitching. He doesn’t anticipate anything, but then again, he said there are no guarantees. It’s self-explanatory Glavine’s importance to this year.
On this date in Mets history: In 1975, Tom Seaver shut out Pittsburgh, 3-0, to reach 200 strikeouts for the eighth straight season.
