Out of the Blue

Today is opening day for the New York Mets. Sorry, I can't even get excited enough to put an exclamation point there, the hard work the team has been doing to remain mediocre seems to be paying off. As a fan, I actually can't suppress the optimism of opening day, but it's next to impossible to rationalize that. One preview of the season I saw opined the team's best case scenario this season was not losing 90 games. If they manage that, I wonder if there will be a parade.

There's a contest here at work, and first prize is a ticket to see the Yankees. Second prize is a ticket to the Mets. Third prize is two tickets to the Mets. Booby prize is a Mets season ticket.

It's pretty sad - the Mets were pretty great 10 years ago but these days the team isn't taken seriously even here in NYC.
