"The Setup To Paradise By The Centrefield Wall"
Some condescending a-ho of a Yankees Fan, walked over to my place @ the bar & mentioned that things don't look good "For YOUR TEAM, Do They";
I merely smiled & stated that it's "merely a game";
Then, an Irishman from across the Atlantic Pond, boasted proudly that he is a "Mets" Fan & questioned my Red Sox Cap;
Let's put it this way; He's the kind of guy who needs to be held by his ankles from a ramp, leaving Upper Level @ Shea Stadium, by various guys who remember Cleon Jones, Ron Hunt, Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman & J C Martin, as well as Jerry Grote; That would be from those of us who remember Borden's Coupons, Doubleheaders & $1.30 Seats, of which I'm a member of that fraternity; It might scare him into what Old-Time Mets Fandom, is really all about; Much of Red Sox Nation-NY is from that early group;
Which is WHY that 3 Run Banger into the Fenway Centrefield Bleachers was as refreshing as an Ice Cold 'Gansett or Ice Cold Rheingold or as Fine Wine to be savored;
Thanks, Papi, For The Memories!
