On the eve of the biggest Mets game in a decade, the excitement is difficult to contain. It’s been a season that’s far exceeded the expectations of most (not me obviously because I knew they’d be here). Regardless of expectations, it’s been a special year for the Metsies with a number of story lines to remember. The Dodgers are no rollover-opponent by any means, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like our chances. Anything can happen in the playoffs. It’s 9 against 9 every night. Monday night is going to be absolutely INSANE in Flushing, especially if the Mets can come back from LA with a win or 2. All hands on deck for the next couple days. As for me, I don’t know how I’ll survive. I’ve had no appetite all day, I’m shaky, can’t concentrate, just so ready for 9:45 tomorrow. I can’t even fathom the possibility of doing this for the next month, let alone the next few days, and it hasn’t even began yet. I live and die with every pitch during the day games in May against the pathetic Phillies. I barely even remember what it’s like to have this kind of pressure; and that pressure builds with every pitch, every at bat, every inning. We’re gonna be on the edge of our seats, assholes clenched tight, jittery, sweaty, and emotional.
Do Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke scare me? Yeah, a little bit. Knowing that they’re gonna take the mound for probably 4 games if the series goes the full 5 definitely has me a little apprehensive. But I’m concerned with the GOOD GUYS. I’m concentrating on the men in orange and blue. I have the utmost confidence with Jacob DeGrom on the mound. I’d go to war for David Wright. Matt Harvey was made for this (whether he wants to relish that moment on the big stage is up in the air though). If the good guys do what the good guys can do, then the good guys win. No more drama, it’s all business now. I may have to wear a suit.
Take a moment to tweet at these assholes who I’ve kept tabs on since April. All I want is for them to admit that they’re wrong. If there’s no accountability in this world, then it would be total chaos.
It’s okay to be nervous. I’ve been pacing around my house for the last week. And it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Mets lose in 4 with my first day of work being the next morning. That would be typical Mets, but this isn’t a typical Mets team. THIS IS IT. Don’t get scared now. LGM.
