Of all the scattered, eclectic memorabilia I own, this sweatshirt takes the cake- here’s to commemorating the most infamous championship that never was.

Here is an uncut sheet of decals I designed for Stinckers. Cut decals were sold in vending machines all over the country (well, you can probably guess which cities).

I have yet to read or see Game of Thrones, but I imagine it’s similar to how R.A. Dickey names his bats:

“His bats have no stickers. He writes his number, 43, in black ink in the middle, with a name curled around it.

One bat is called Orcrist the Goblin Cleaver and the other is Hrunting. Dickey, an avid reader, said that Orcrist came from “The Hobbit.” Hrunting — the H is silent, Dickey said — came from the epic poem “Beowulf”; it is the sword Beowulf uses to slay Grendel’s mother.”

So, MLB Network, when are you going to start production on your baseball meets fantasy epic?

You want to know what’s great about baseball? Waking up and knowing this fool isn’t on your team anymore.

Ahh there’s really nothing better than a 1986 Mets photo. Here’s a special one for our very own Mookie Wilson, who turns 55 today, and is responsible for a great deal of happiness in my life and in the lives of Mets fans everywhere. Happy birthday, Mookie!

More Mets centric information on this fine Monday morning. Did you know that of all the 30 MLB parks, Citi Field is the only one that doesn’t have yellow foul poles?

For the first time since Len Dykstra was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for Juan Effing Samuel on June 18th, 1989, I’ve got a favorite baseball player.

I got a wonderful email from Peter Mullaney today in which he shared an amazing personal project of a man who happened to love the Mets. A man named Jamie Livingston set out to take a polaroid every day of his life from 1979 through October 1997, when he passed away. Captured in these thousands of photos are several trips to Shea Stadium, and even photographs of games on tv. The need to chronicle everything possible is one I feel is very closely related to baseball, so I find this archive to be fascinating on multiple levels. Read more about the Polaroid archive here and here, and be sure to dig through the archive.

I thought it would be a fun exercise to recreate some of the most memorable moments in sports in scorecard form (please correct any errors in my scorekeeping form). If you’ve got some moments you would like to see relived through the scorekeeping grid, shoot me an email and I’ll do them up, or even better, sketch them out and submit them yourself!

So, this one is pretty obvious… What famous World Series moment is this?

Citi Field is the ballpark of the New York Mets, opening in 2009. The park is very spacious and is considered a pitcher’s park. There are many eateries and sources of entertainment within the ballpark. PNC Park in Pittsburgh is cited as the biggest influence on the feel of the ballpark.
