Any Pitchers In That Pipeline?

Tim Heiman, sports director of WRPI radio at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, just returned home from a road trip the likes of which has been unseen by Mets fans since Benny Agbayani was rising and shining in Tokyo [1]. Tim covered the Engineers’ away game (very away game) at Alaska-Fairbanks — a 1-1 tie — yet found the time to grace the 49th state with a little 37 14 41 42.

Yup, that’s the Faith and Fear shirt in Alaska, and that is indeed the Alaska Pipeline overhead. We’re really impressed by Tim’s display of the numbers so far north, but we are a little concerned that he’s outside in Alaska with no coat on. Tim says it was 20 degrees there this past weekend, making it slightly chillier than the Meadowlands on Sunday [2].

No word from Tim regarding any prospects [3] on the Goldpanners like the one the Mets eventually scooped up [4] in the 1960s. Then again, we guess that Fairbanks team is a little out of season [5] right now.

Wherever you go in this world, do be sure to go there in FAFIF style [6].
