Mets Yearbook: 1985

Wednesday night at 7:00, SNY airs Mets Yearbook: 1985, the channel’s adaptation of the state-of-the-art ’85 highlight film No Surrender. I hope it’s nearly as spine-tingling in edited form as it was when it filled SportsChannel’s rain delays in 1986, particularly given that the original, from the heart of the MTV era, contained magnificent music video montages, and SNY has consistently avoided using any recognizable songs in recasting these productions (licensing fees cost money). Will Keith Hernandez still be “The Warrior” at first base? Will National League opponents still be warned that when they’re messing with Gary Carter, they’re “Messin’ With The Kid“? Might Buffalo Springfield still be on hand to let us know that “For What It’s Worth” nobody’s worth more than 20-year-old Doctor K?

Either way, Tim McCarver still narrates and the Mets still don’t surrender. Cue the goose bumps.

And right now you can watch the new On The Sportslines, featuring a ten-minute interview with yours truly at the 13:00 mark. Check it out here.
