wine by the color

Sunday, August 20, 2006

At this morning's softball game, one of the hot topics was last night's tribute to the '86 Mets at Shea, which was terrific, despite the absence of Davey Johnson, Ray Knight, Roger McDowell and Lee Mazzilli, all of whom should have figured out a way to be there. Dwight Gooden being a no-show can be forgiven, in light of his current incarceration.

So I was chatting with one of the guys over our shared Mets-fan status, and he asked if I have been a Mets fan for a long time. I jokingly responded, "I have probably been a Mets fan longer than you've been alive."

He then hit me with: "Well, I was born in 1986..."

That hurt.

For god's sake, some of us could DRIVE in 1986.
