Hey Mets Fans!

Helpful Advice from the Mayo Clinic:

Clearing the airway of a pregnant woman or obese person:

  • Position your hands a little bit higher than with a normal Heimlich maneuver, at the base of the breastbone, just above the joining of the lowest ribs.
  • Proceed as with the Heimlich maneuver, pressing hard into the chest, with a quick thrust.
  • Repeat until the food or other blockage [ed: Such as a pennant] is dislodged or the person becomes unconscious.

Man, these last two games have been about as fun (once you get past the starting pitching!) as any that we've had all year.

(Reading the similarly situated ravings of Red Sox fans is almost as much fun!)

  • Bonus Mets Taunting: Mel Rojas! Timo Perez in the World Series! Kenny Rogers! Armando Benitez! Billy Taylor! Bobby Alomar! Bill Pulsipher! Did I mention Kenny Rogers?


    • Boy you're right--it's fun watching those Mets fans lose it. How do you spend that kind of money and still be starting Brian Lawrence and have that bullpen. A cautionary tale about how we spend our own money going forward. And the worst thing for the Mets is that their window of opportunity is closing--Alou, El Duque, Glavine, Wagner--they're all geezers. Pretty soon it's going to be Wright, Reyes, and rebuilding.

    • Not that I want to blow my own trumpet, but a few weeks back I called for Wily Mo to move to clean up...how many runs have we scored since that move was made? Just imagine if they'd played him there from the beginning. With the way the Mets are playing, we could have made a play off run!

    • Did you see Chad shake off a few signs with the last batter - and then flash a killer grin before the final pitch?

    • Went to last night's game. I asked my friend on the way in, "Do you think Mets fans can be as obnoxious as usual given that they are completely choking the division and just lost 2 straight to us?" The answer was a resounding "yes." They were so cocky, obnoxious, and arrogant. I really thought there was going to be a fight in Sections 442/443 near the end of the game. Some Mets fan completely lost it and was challenging the Nats fans to "meet him in the parking lot." What a class team with a class fan base.

    • I have enjoyed watching the Nats thump the Mets over the last week and a half. Four wins out of five games is incredible.

      I have found Mets fans generally to be respectful and knowledgeable of the game. Because we are in DC, practically everyone who lives here can claim to be from somewhere else. There are a lot of New Yorkers here. I'd rather see them cheer for the Mets than the Yankees.

      Mets fans have got nothing on Philly fans who were chanting "DC sucks at the end of Saturday's game at RFK. They were met with half-hearted boos instead of a louder roar of "LETS GO NATS". This would of drowned them out if more than 100 decided to make some noise for the home team.
