METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 20, 2006 GAME:
April 21, 2007
The final game of the series with Mindy featured the Carloses (Beltran and Delgado) going deep and El Duque wowing the crowd with his pitching, hitting (he had a single), and baserunning (he stole third).
Amid this easy Mets win, Mindy informed me that she wasn't wearing any deodorant. In the crush of 30,000 people, how the hell am I going to notice? :) Anyway, I replied "Thank you for sharing" and asked if she noticed that I was wearing the same shirt and jeans throughout the entire series (I always try to wear a light colored shirt and Levi's blue jeans whenever I see a game at Shea). I added that although I wore the same outfit three days straight, I did shower and change my underwear after every game. Always remember: A clean Mets fan is a happy Mets fan!
Following the game, Mindy and I were so spent from attending three Mets games, traveling, eating a ton of ballpark food, and the heat that we went back to our separate abodes and passed out. I can't speak for her, but I was so sick of eating ballpark that all I had to eat that Monday was an avocado sandwich.
We were fortunate that we saw the Mets sweep the Rockies. However, the next time Mindy and I see three games again, we're going to space them out a little.
