Long time readers to Mets Police will recognize me and may have noticed that I haven’t been around much the last few months.Â Truth of the matter is I took a leave of absence from the force for a while because – and it pains me to say this – my wife and I moved out of Queens and down to the Philadelphia area.
Yes, I am now living behind enemy lines in Phillies country.
I’m surrounded by Phillie red – almost makes me miss the black drop shadow (Sorry Shannon).
But thankfully this is the 21st century and even though I may be trapped like a POW, with all the tools and information available I prefer to think of myself as a Col. Hogan down here (too old a reference for some?).Â So every now and then I’ll try and pass along observations from behind the Red Curtain.
Now where’s my Red Cross care package?

does that make charlie manuel col. klink?
I was thinking about that – then maybe Ruben Amaro is Gen. Hofstetter?
And then who’s sgt. Schultz
OK – that reference wasn’t too old for the readers. And Sgt. Schultz could be Carlos Ruiz (the catcher – he lets everyone ‘escape’.)
Welcome to hell. I work in bucks county (the suburbs due north of philadelphia) and have to deal with these miserable fans everyday at work. What makes matters worse is all other NY/NJ transplants are usually yankee fans. So you got two groups of obnoxious fans in one geographic region. Finding another mets fan around here like finding a buried treasure. At least I have this blog.
