Apple

Okay, I know this is totally frivolous and silly, but it’s the kind of thing that makes me smile.

The Mets, as any baseball fan knows, are in the middle of a nightmare season of injuries and ineptitude.  They managed to tread water for a little while, but the free fall has begun, and they’re just painful to watch.  They hadn’t hit a home run in eight games, but today Brian Schneider and Fernando Tatis went back to back.

Apparently the home run apple in centerfield needs 45 seconds to “recharge”, so it didn’t go up after the Tatis home run.  First the fans booed the apple’s no-show, then started chanting, “Apple, apple.”  The apple finally went up at the end of the inning, and the fans gave it a standing ovation.

The team sucks, but the fans rule.

    I remember the Mets from the days when they were the “loveable losers”, and we could watch them when the Phillies weren’t on TV. They used to be known more for the creative banners their fans brought to the park than they were for good baseball.

    They weren’t losers for very long – certainly nowhere near as long as the Phillies were. They’ve had their ups and downs, and will probably be up again, someday. They’ve always had great fans, though.
