So, in my last entry, I told you there would be more '86 Mets-related festivities. Right? That's what I told you, right, Paul Lo Duca? Ahh, Joe B.
Now though, it is coming true.
We're giving away (yes, I said GIVING AWAY) a 1986 Mets World Series DVD set (which you can read about in the above-linked last entry) to the first person to get the answer to these Mets trivia questions to me via email (zookman12[at]yahoo[dot]com).
I decided they would be questions about the last two years of Mets-related misery.
It's going to be:
2003: Figure A) I was doing my job, just throwing pitches, when somehow a very important Met check-swung at a pitch and tore his groin. I struck out 13 in 6 2/3 innings of work that day. I look like some sort of bird-type mutant creature.
2004: Figure B) I was doing my job, just running the bases, when the second baseman gets in my way. So I break his leg with a possibly dirty slide. I didn't think it was that bad. Danny Garcia had to come in.
2004: Figure C) My last pitch of the game became a home run to a Mets rookie in a game in very late September. It went right over Sammy Sosa's head. Figures.
EDIT:We Have a Winner!
Walter from Washington was the first to respond with A) Jason Schmidt, B) J.D. Closser and C) Kent Mercker.
Thanks to all who entered.
