Damn Mets

The Mets just lost 11-10 to the Phillies, to get swept in a four game series. They were behind 5-0 and tied it up, and then behind 8-5 and took a 10-8 lead, but couldn’t hold on. I was having flashbacks to Game 6 of the 1999 NLCS the whole time, and actually expecting it to end on a bases loaded walk, not a walkoff single. They’re now only 2 games up in the division, and have a series against the Braves, who they can’t beat, coming up. Not good.

Perhaps the best game I’ve ever seen. Going down 10-8 was demoralizing, but watching them come back to win against the Rat made it more than worth it!

One of the most improbably sweeps you could imagine. 30-footer ties it before Howard’s walk off and the runner’s interference to win it… all that before today’s crazy game.

I was at the bar for the entire game.

Too much fun. WAGS!
