Best Double Play Combination Ever

Bernie-Casey Sheets

Bernie and Casey posed here in tribute to their favorite┬á1997 Mets, Edgardo Alfonzo at third and Rey Ordo├▒ez at short, replicating the Great Wall of Flushing that made the left side of our infield so impenetrable that year. Likewise, very little got by these cat-like, uh…cats. In the background you’ll see the pillow cases our kitties licensed when America was gripped by Bernie and Casey Fever in the 1990s. They had a whole line of merchandise.Well, they should have.

    Just needed to tell you that we lost our oldest girl (17 1/2) last week….and heard that she had lunch with Bernie….

    So sorry to hear that, Metlady. That's a good run, though, 17-1/2 years. That's Craig Biggio, Tony Gwynn…that's Ed Kranepool territory.
    Bernie was known for having his lunch and a swath of Casey's or Hozzie's, too. Your kitty had to have been pretty special if he didn't elbow his way into her plate. Sounds very bewitching.

    Thanks for the electronic hug….
    She was quite the little minx….Bernie would have been smitten.
    And you're right…it was a good run.
