The Marlins season is now officially over. The Marlins had a wonderful year, and despite not making it to the post season, I take pride in the fact that they exceeded everyone’s expectations and were able to come through in the very end. I’m not going to lie, I am slightly disappointed, but I look forward to coming in to my office Monday morning and seeing the looks on the faces of the handful of Mets fans.
I am not one to gloat or be boastful, but it will be a nice feeling to smile in the faces of those that tormented me everyday for 6 months for supporting my team. With each day that passed, I would sit humbly at my desk and pray that my Marlins continue to do well, as the “typical” Mets fan would walk around the office with their heads held high in arrogance. However, that didn’t start until the Mets got rid of their good for nothing manager and replaced him with Jerry Manuel, who did an excellent job as manager, but let’s not forget how poorly the Mets did at the start of the season.
To be fair, I will give the Mets credit for succeeding in possibly one of the greatest turn arounds. They worked very hard to climb back up to the top and while the team may have deserved to make it to the post season, their majority of unruly fans did not deserve that pleasure. I pity the Mets because it is a shame that a team with that much talent can still get booed for the smallest mistake at the drop of a dime. The Marlins may not have the strongest backing of fans, but I would rather have no one supporting me than a pack of wolves. And please understand, I know not all New York Mets fans behave in this way. I am just sick of people like this and this. The obnoxious troll like fans that have claimed to be “so much better” than me have now been silenced. For the genuine and sincere Mets fans, such as MetsManiacinNH, you have my sincere condolences. Better luck next year for your team and mine.

Jose Reyes is recently accused of getting his groove on with someone other than his wife. TheDirty.com alerted the media of the sites exclusive evidence that Met’s SS, Jose Reyes, was having an affair with a semi known pin up model, Bentley Matthews. The New York Daily News tracked her down and shockingly she denies ever being involved with him. Nik Richie, the site’s proprietor, stands by his sources and says that Reyes is in fact doing TheDirty.com with her.
Richie even goes as far to say that Matthews is only one of Reyes’ many “girlfriends”, and is also one of the many “girlfriends” to sleep with other Mets players. GROUPIE ALERT! Richie gets catty and charmingly calls Matthews a “cross eyed Ricki Lake”.
I see where they got the Ricky Lake comparison...
With as many games as I have been to in my 21 years of existence, I have not once attended a tailgate party. I have always dreamed of going to one, as silly as that sounds, but I have never had enough people want to go to a baseball game with me.
About 3 months ago, one of my coworkers informed me that they had purchased 30 tickets to the Mets vs. Marlins game on July 30th. I was definitely in. A month prior to the game, I heard whispers here and there about a tailgate party. I was thrilled. We collected money, organized the entire event, and on Wednesday afternoon we had the tailgate party, followed by the incredibly exciting Marlins game, and then followed by a celebratory tailgate party because of the Marlins win.
I have had the pleasure of experiencing a baseball game from two different points of view. One, as a serious baseball game attendee, and the second view as a girl coming to a game with friends and coworkers to hang out and let loose. It may not sound too different, but a couple of shots of Patron can change a lot of things. I had an amazing time with the people I work with and we plan on having a repeat outing very soon. Now, enough party talk, on to the game!
Rumors may have been swirling around about the possible Manny Ramirez trade(which thank God did not go throuhg), but you would never have guessed there was a worry on any Marlins’ mind with the way they played on Wednesday night, especially in the bottom of the fourth. Jeremy Hermida, Jorge Cantu, Dan Uggla, and Josh Johnson are a few players that shined that evening. You can’t sink the fish!
There would have been more photos, but I couldn’t figure out how to get the camera off of night vision. 😦

I am planning to attend a game this weekend, so please look forward to a better post with better photos! 🙂
While searching the net today at work, desperately looking for something to entertain me during the last half hour of my long and exhausting day, I stumbled upon this story at Home Run Derby which made my mouth drop. Apparently, the unofficial mascot of the Chicago Cubs, not only wanders the streets of Chicago wearing only a jersey and occasionally a Fukodome bandanna on his head, but he is incredibly friendly, sometimes lonesome and obviously desperate. On one lonely night, our poor bear was subject to an unattractive drunk Mets fan and coped a feel on her not so goodies. He was just looking for a little love, people! He isn’t disgusting. Actually, the only disgusting thing was that he chose that woman to molest. I don’t think our friendly Cubbie is a pervert at all. Really, I don’t even think he knew he was groping the woman, and I bet to this day he has no idea, unless he Googles himself and this image miraculously appears. (I wouldn’t be surprised) In all reality, he is just a lost little bear in the big Windy City. So, let’s cut our Cubbie some slack. I did and I didn’t get molested! 🙂
Thanks to the Home Run Derby for this great find. 🙂

After seeing this amazing video today of Mariah Carey throwing the first pitch at a Japanese baseball game yesterday, I can proudly say that she puts Taylor Tankersley to shame. Let’s just say that this was the most impressive display of baseball that I have ever seen. Watch and enjoy as Mrs. Mariah Carey-Cannon wiggles to the mound with two incredibly creepy mascots and throws her magical pitch. Her wind up is simply to die for. Don’t be surprised if you see her name pop up on the Florida Marlins roster as Tankersley’s replacement, or perhaps even Justin Miller’s after last night’s display against the Mets!
