— Days Without Shea —

Shea Stadium and Citi Field and Honen_080608.JPGThe Mets won today to take the series from the Padres. Nice job boys.

I was in Loge13 last night as previously mentioned. Not such a nice job boys.

As Don Hahn Solo said, if you had told me before the game that Pedro would pitch 6 1/3 innings and give up just two earned runs, I would have penciled in a Win for us.

Meanwhile before last night's game, rookie Eddie Kunz was in Shea Stadium for the first time. As part of his hazing, Kunz came out of the Mets dugout and walked out to the bullpen wearing a giant pink Barbie backpack. Kunz was good natured about it, waving to the fans and even stopping to sign autographs.

I tried to film the Kunz walk from Loge13.
Sadly it didn't come out too clearly but here is the clip anyway. if nothing else, it's a nice sampling of the sights, the sounds, even the smells of a hot August night at Shea. There are only a handful of these nights left...
