I was listening to today's Mets/Reds game while cleaning out the garage. The Mets won 9-7.

The boys also finally broke out of the home run slump. After 82 homer-less innings, Brian Schneider and Tatis hit back-to-back HR's off ex-Met David Weathers.

The crowd went wild, but the Home Run Apple remained still after Fernando's blast. The crowd started chanting "We want Apple" but to no avail. Howie Rose said it was the first time he could ever recall the crowd cheering for the Apple. Finally at the end of the inning, the Apple popped up.

Good fans today.

For those of you who dont know....
1) According to published reports, it takes 2&1/2 minutes for the "Apple" to be ready for the next use. Thus the Mets have been told to take their time in hitting back-to-back homeruns.
2) There is a parking dispute with the lot closest to LGA at the Worlds Fair Marina. Since the Met/Yank weekend, the marina wants a kick-back from the Mets to allow car to park there. The Mets wont pay so the lots off limits. Yesterday,12 of us were to meet there for a BBQ. I arrived with my friend at 9:15 am to set up and found it strange no one was there to take my $18. Then my cell phone started ringing. The rest of the group arrived and said they cant get it. My friend, who's a cop, went over and the group was allowed in with a police escort...Day Saved!!!
3) Upon leaving the lot to go to the game, I asked NYPD if I can park there Saturday for Paul McCartney's Concert. He said Yes and told me All Parking for the concert will be $30.
You been forewarned.....
