#ThrowbackThursday Let’s Go Mets!

Baseball players are superstitious and I guess so are baseball fans. Last two times I wore my Mets sweatshirt they won, so I’m wearing it again for the decisive Game 5. If there is karma, they should win because that Utley play was horrible and affected the outcome of the game. So here’s me from this morning with my lucky sweatshirt.

And for good measure, a real Throwback Thursday. This is a picture of my daughter and I at Shea Stadium for a 2007 division playoff game against the Cardinals. Actually, it was a rained out game and we sat in the stadium, getting wet, until they decided not to play. We had a fun time and returned a day or so later only to watch our beloved Mets lose to the Cardinals. Hoping today’s outcome is way different.

#ManCandyMonday Buster Posey

Buster Posey is adorable. Such a cutie and a great ball player. He’s also the reason there is now a rule dictating how you can hit a catcher at the plate. In 2011, he was seriously injured in a collision at home plate.

Which brings up Saturday’s Utley tackle of Ruben Tejada of the Mets. I can’t call it a slide, because it wasn’t. Now you know I’m a Mets fan, but over and above that, I’m a baseball fan. I’ve watched lots of games. I played catcher on a softball team for a long time. That slide was uncalled for and injured a player. It also changed the course of the game and Utley’s suspension won’t change that now. He should have been called out and the game should have progressed with two out in that inning.

I always liked Utley, but that hit changed my impression of him FOREVER. If someone would do that to another ball player to win a game, in my humble opinion, he’s not a nice guy.

But Buster Posey is a nice guy and again, adorable. I love his face in this commercial for Esurance.
