Baseball

Reading over this blog, and getting feedback from a few friends, I realize that it appears I am unhappy with Kranepool. Quite the opposite, I love Kranepool! I love baseball, and blogs, more than most people love anything, AND I’m a kvetcher, so of course I’m going to nitpick.
My Dad has an Ed Kranepool autographed baseball, and he’s the Mets all-time hits leader.

Mets Win! Mets Win!

Last night I dreamt me and some friends were in Paris for opening day, Mets vs. Expos. The Mets, somehow, won 12 games on this day and clinched the division.

There’s not much to read into this dream, I was in foreign territory for two of my three “opening days,” Yankees Stadium for Baseball’s opening day, and in an expat bar in Paris for opening day at Fenway park. The Expos are gone, of course, but they made many visits to Shea about opening day, and hailing from Montreal they were also kind of “the French team.” I don’t know how the Mets managed to get 12 games up in one day in my dream, or how that became “clinching the division,” but I was happy about it. (My third opening day was really only opening day for me, Pedro’s first start at Shea.)
