Home STEEP, Home

Another year and another Opening Day at home for the Mets.

It was more of an opening of a can of worms.

Didn't get to see much of the game, (though I snuck a few at-bats here and there during the work hours).  Dickey is a good pitcher, but he imploded.  It's hard to throw the knuck in overcast, damp, dank weather.

The thing that stood out to me was the attendance.  I had to pinch myself and ask if we were at the Marlin's ball park.

Check this link and in the sixth inning, there seemed to be more Republicans at Berkeley University than Mets fans in the stands.

Turn the page - there's tomorrow at 7.

For the record: It's actually easier to throw the knuckler in "in overcast, damp, dank weather," as there is more for the ball to meet resistance against in flight.

Dickey, himself, said it was a broken fingernail. THAT would do it.
