A sequel to Thursday’s very Mets-heavy episode, this one is very Star Wars heavy, but I did want to post it here since there are some fans of the podcast, and some fans of both the Mets and Star Wars. If you don’t like this one, scroll down and play episode 10 which was all-Mets.

First of all, I hate Sunday night baseball. I hate it especially when I have to be up at 2:30 am on Monday morning for work with a two hour drive ahead of me to Long Island for work. I really wanted to sleep last night but I got sucked into the game. It was great hearing a juiced up crowd cheering for the Mets. A sellout for a Sunday night in August? Who knew. I have been giving my cousin Shannon(@metspolice) a whole bunch of crap lately about not attending any games, especially after the fact that for many years he said CitiField didn’t feel like the Mets home. I was at the game Saturday and the place was crazy. It feels like home. It did Rock Like Shea. It does Sunday night it came through the tv the same way. This is what we have wanted for a long time. Will it continue, I hope so. I am enjoying this. After the boring baseball for the last few years it seems like we might be finally at the precipice of the team playing well for a while. Am I getting ahead of myself? Maybe. That crowd was nuts after the three homers in the third. You could feel the buzz coming through the tv. It was great. I can’t wait to get back to citifield when the Mets come back home.
You guys enjoying this as much as I am? If you are awesome! Let’s go Mets!!!
