About time I stole something from Mike Harrington's "Inside Pitch" baseball blog at the Buffalo News, especially after he gave me such a nice plug today.
Mike posted a video to the tune of the 1960's song, "Meet the Mets." It's a classic sports theme song, catchy and memorable at least to people who follow the team. I had the original 45 rpm single when I was about 8 or 9 or so and living in New Jersey. I cleverly left it and all my other 45's behind when I came home from freshman year of college. D'oh!
By the way, my friend Glenn says he thought the song was called "Beat the Mets."
The sick part is, I still know all the words.
