Please SNY Never Again

I missed the beginning of the broadcast during which I assume Gary and Ron explained why they handed the mics over to Al Michaels and Bob Costas. At which point I hope they apologized profusely and begged for forgiveness. 

It seemed to be some dopey MLBNetwork promo with Al and Costas switching to the Giants booth after the Mets but it was painful to watch.

Al Michaels doesn’t bug me but Costas is such a friggin TOOL. I always thought he was a tight ass but when I saw him punk out on the rest of his hosts back on the HBO’s Inside the NFL I knew he was an insecure pompous little f*ck.

Him and Collinsworth came in last on their picks for the season and they were supposed to have a punishment. Costas first tried to suggest his own punishments but when they were all more like fun rewards his co-hosts shot him down. 

The ultimate decision was to dress up like KISS and rock out with “mini-KISS” the midgets who dress up as KISS. Collinsworth took his medicine with pride while Costas sat there pouting refusing to participate - insecure little tool that he is.

Great win over the World Champs. 

Pagan finally parked another ball and it could t have come at a better time. The dude has has no power this year. He’s no slugger but I woulda thought he have a couple more pokes by now.

RA Dickey is such a non-baseball player looking guy. I swear if I saw him looking like he did in his post game interview with a change cup in his hand at the Haight I might give him a quarter.

    Great win coupled with a Braves loss. Lets bring games behind in the loss column to 5 for the WC after Saturday.

    I gotta give it to the Mets for hanging in there waiting for the troops to return (Wright, Reyes, possibly Ike, possibly Johan).

    Let’s Go Mets!

    Every time I am forced to watch or listen to the Mets through someone else’s broadcast I am reminded of how truly lucky were are as Mets fans to have the broadcast crews. The team may not produce at the level that we’d like, but other than Vin Scully, there isn’t another broadcast team even close to what the Mets have.

    Amen to that LC. Although personally I wouldn’t mind packing Wayne “Can’t Call A Game To Save My Life” Hagin back on the bus to Colorado. He should be the centerpiece of an ad campaign for plain-wrap Beer — The Most Uninteresting Man In The World…

    It’s amazing to see how this team manages to get a lift from the most unexpected places. What’s next? Willie Harris hits for the cycle?

    Wayne Hagin is horrendous!!!

  5. Original62Fan Says:

    Historically, the Mets have ALWAYS had broadcasters that are professional, personable, knowledgable and articulate (except Kiner, but his player insight in earlier years was great). Turn on any other game and it boredoms-ville is listen.

    Hysterical!Big win for the boys. Let’s take one more this series and end on a sweet 5-2 or dare I say 6-1 road trip.

    Great jobs by Scott Hairston and Nick Evans in the 9th. Excellent starting and relief pitching. I am concerned about the Mets defense looking ragged the past couple of games, since this group just can’t afford to give away runs. But another win is another win and one they had to have considering they will now face Lincecum, Cain, Halladay, Lee and Hamels as the Seven Signs of the Pitching Apocalypse continues.

    LET’S GO METS!
    TAKE THAT BUSHY BEARD BOY!
    BRING ON THE FREAK!

    Can’t wait for tonight’s matchup.

    My son says the same thing about RAD, but I think he’s damn fit for a pitcher especially from the waist down.

    What LC, El Dude, and Original said! I think even “that’s BIG LEAGUE!” would grate on me after a while; our guys are the best. Deffo the best in NY.

    Seriously. Can’t wait for tonight’s matchup.

    What a game! I LOVE this team from the GM down to the bat boy.

    I think we should all give ourselves a little pat on the back, because apparently the baseball gods have listened to our ideas, advice, and complaints over the past few years. This is a real Met team—scrappy, tough, surprising, fun. Gotta love this season.

    Wayne Hagin is UNBEARABLE, but at least Howie is there when he speaks to add a little smarts and interest. Howie is the best! But the MLB guys, forget it! What was that long boring thing about “musing?” Almost as bad as Wayne’s interminable story about Ronald Regan’s dress shirts on July 4th. WHO CARES.

  10. CowCrusher Says:

    Wow, BMF dissing on his fellow SU Alum, Bob “Cutlass” Costas.:-D

    I can deal with Wayne….but not John or Susan over Evil Empireville. Maybe the “Schmooze” should guest star at the mic if Ed is not available? At least Mr. Somers would be insightful about his beloved “New York Metropolitans”.:-)

  11. BlondiesJake Says:

    I’m ready to take over for Hagin!

  12. CowCrusher Says:

    Ok Jake…just make sure you get all the BMF’ers the best seatsB-)

  13. BlondiesJake Says:

    How about a BMF luxury suite?

    As long as we can ban the likes of Lady Gag-Gag!
