Seasons of Mets

One hundred sixty two games, figure three hours per game on average…

Twenty nine thousand
And six hundred minutes
Is about what we cover
In the course of a year
Twenty nine thousand
And six hundred minutes
Eventually wind up
Blogged by Faith and Fear

The rallies, the replays
The walkoffs, the West Coast start times
With Howie, with Gary
With overpriced beer
Those twenty nine thousand
And six hundred minutes
We write them all up
We write them right here

Twenty nine thousand
And six hundred minutes
Trying to track
Every strike, every ball
Twenty nine thousand
And six hundred minutes
How many deep flies
Are caught at the wall?

In rookies who show
And veterans who’ve left
In promising pitching
In offense bereft

It’s time now
I head out
To that place that’s next to Shea
Then contemplate
How it always ends
On a Closing Day
