METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 22, 2011 GAME:Joe Figliola
May 29, 2011
It's one thing to acknowledge how you defeated another team. It's another when the team you lost to has to get arrogant and rub it in.
Two things bothered me about this game more than Pelfrey losing it on the mound in the 7th inning: The first was Cano's RBI single. The camera got a shot of him smirking and waving to the crowd as if he was a big shot. With the exception of the curtain calls following their home runs, you never saw the '86 Mets genuflect to the crowd after every hit they made. Cano's gesture matches his personality: classless!
The second was A-Rod's remark on how he "showed them." First of all, you clown, you were lucky to catch some lumber that resulted in that 45-foot swinging bunt. Second, why don't you show some class and say something respectful like how the Mets put up a fight in spite of a depleted lineup. Then again, this is A-Rod we're talking about. All his life is Cameron Diaz and swinging a 34-inch, 32-ounce Louisville Syringe.
I give the Mets credit for putting up a fight in spite of difficult circumstances. However, there will be a time when the Yankees will receive a heavy dose of instant karma and the Mets will shine on!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
