Out of the Blue

Most elaborate April Fool's gag of yesterday goes to the New York Mets, who spent the afternoon trying to fool us that they are a contender. Nice try guys, but as the old saying goes, fool me 51 times, shame on you. Fool me 52 times... Okay, I exaggerate, but as I've noted before, this is their best trick, as with all of 22 winning seasons in the books, the Metsies have the best opening day record in baseball history at 34-18 (even more remarkably, they are 34-10 after losing their first eight openers), and they have won 20 of their last 22 home openers. The lesson here? I'm going to enjoy them being in first place while it lasts.

Wow, that's about one of the saddest, most pathetic things I've ever heard. Thank's again for illustrating why I have zero faith in our species surviving too much longer. If the government doesn't start licensing reproduction it's pretty much over in that case.

Clearly you must be some form of advanced hominid who doesn't enjoy violence. Kudos to you Homo Superior.

Seriously, licensing reproduction over hockey fights? Nice overreaction there buttercup.

Sigh, you missed the point entirely as I knew you would. And again, you've just proven yet another point.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
