This post is coming at you 2 hours and 37 minutes away from first pitch of a baseball team I've followed since I was young lad in the early 80s. The New York Mets came so close last year and the bad guys won the World Series. I'm not one of those appreciative-of-good-baseball fans. My team lost last year and it was upsetting. Not as upsetting when Carlos Beltran watched that curveball for strike three from Adam Wainwright during Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. No. That was horrible.
