We're running out of adjectives!
Crumbling, devastating, choke, disappointing.
As quoted by the AM Daily, 'It began as a nail-biter but ended as a heartbreaker'
My heart swelled on Sunday as the Mets...well you know. But the celebratory commemorative nature that followed the game lifted the spirits of many. It symbolizes that they are a team of past present and future. For that stadium to suck it up and put on a happy face really says a lot about the strength, poise, and respect this team has for the game and the fans.
I got teary-eye on the subway this morning as I saw that goofy orange wig. The story is like a train wreck you just can't take your eyes off of it.
The loss comes to us at a time when New Yorkers need forward thinking more than ever. The two headlines of the NY Post and The Daily News had the Met's loss and the Economic Rescue Plan. Optimism and hope are hard to come by these days but as Americans these two stories not only represent two great foundations of this country [Baseball and Economic Power] but also how the American people are resilient and hope for the future.
We could all just give up and move to a foreign country but we believe that next spring will bring a new roster and our economy will being it's slow upturn once again.
