On the first day of full team workouts Jeffy Boy Wilpon handed out Met orange t-shirts with the Underdog logo on the front. If you’re too young to know Underdog was nothing short of one of the greatest childhood cartoons ever. It was a dog in an oversized superhero suit.
Now you can argue whether or not its appropiate for an owner of professional team in the largest market in the world labling his team underdogs but to me Jeffy Boy swung and missed on these shirts. Instead of putting the easily recognizable Underdog himself on the short Jeffy opted for just the cartoon “U” that appears across Underdogs chest.
BMF has been a lifelong Underdog fan and even after reading the headline I had trouble figuring out what the Hell that weird looking “U” was. So instead of making great looking, easily identifiable shirts Jeffy decided to go with an obsure reference to the loveable character.
Jeffy Boys genius strikes again. Good lord I pray the Willons lose ownership before this tool get complete control.
David Wright also worked out in a Michigan football jersey as a result of “settling a bet with Fred Wilpon”
Hmmm i wonder what that bet could have been…
Perhaps Wright wagered he’d never finish 2011 as a Met
Wright wagered that Reyes would indeed be back.
Wright gambled the Willons would in slash payroll to Padre levels only to lose when the Wilpons went Oakland A’s.
Wright bet that less than 98% of Met fans hated the Wilpons
Wright rolled the dice declaring that someone somewhere in the world would have something nice to say about Jeffy Boy
Wright thought the Mets wouldn’t finish the season as a laughing stock 5 consecutive years.
