Posadenfreude Friday

Ah, the rites of the Friday afternoon before the first Friday night of the first Subway Series game of the year…

Is that tonight?

I’d forgotten all about it.

Seems they used to make a bigger deal out of it.

Whatever, I don’t care.

It’s just another game.

It’s gotten old.

This doesn’t matter more than any other series.

It isn’t what it used to be.

I just as soon have more games against the National League.

Still, I don’t want us to lose.

I mean I never want us to lose, but it would really suck tonight.

And I sure as hell don’t want them to win.

I really fucking don’t want us to lose.

And I really fucking don’t want them to win.

Ohmigod, I so fucking don’t want us to lose to them.

I so fucking want us to beat them.

I can’t stand them.

I really can’t stand them.

I can’t stand any of them.

I hope they lose every game…ever.

But especially tonight.

And Saturday.

And Sunday.

When is 7 o’clock gonna get here?

I am SO psyched for this!

Let’s fucking win these!


Even though, y’know, it’s just another game.

    Man do I hate that other team. From the leadoff man to the 9th (whoever is stuck in this spot in the lineup gets appeased with $13 million). From the train that has the chutzpah to travel to their mausoleum to the announcer who turns my stomach whenever he utters a syllable. If they lost 161 games in a year, I would curse out the ‘loser’ that lost to those jerks. I hate them. Now who are they playing this weekend?

    Well said!

    Only members of the Communist Party want to ban Subway Series’ games.
    Let’s Go Mets! One game at a time…

    I’ll take underdogs over divas, anyday. And I have, for 41 years. Let’s go Mets!!

    if I show this to my “other team” friends, they’ll think it was written by me. I hate that other team also, and I live in the Bronx! I’d rather see more games with the National League than that other team. I soooooo want us to win also. I hate it when we lose, especially to THEM.

    Let’s Go Mets! (please)

    I hate them, and their fans cast no reflection in mirrors. But the thing I hate most about these games are the ones played in our park, and half the people there are rooting for them. I even have trouble watching those games on TV. I just completed my “why didn’t you buy a ticket package?” survey, and one of the reasons I cited was that they keep including tickets to games against them in these packages. I don’t want to be in my own park with 20,000 Satan worshipers.

    But beating them makes it worth it, Murph’s HR just made it 2-1 a little while ago, so it could be a nice night.

    Gotta like what they showed tonight. Youth, life, didn’t fold when the pressure was on. The Empire looked old, sluggish, waiting on the 3 run HR’s that didn’t come. Sure, it’s only one game, but still. Let’s win at least one more and get out of that toilet at 500.
