This Mets team is something special.
I have so many great memories of both working in Shea and attending games as a fan. One day, perhaps, I'll write more about that.
It is when things are good, like this season, that the voice is at its worst as it talks to me constantly.

I've tried doing daily poems and fancy blog posts and anything I thought would draw attention. However, the internet is a very large ocean and nobody is going to notice me pouring cans of surgery sweet blue and orange soda into it.
In my five years working at Major League Baseball teams, there were plenty of highs and there were plenty of lows. There were more wins than losses, but more heartbreaks than jubilation.
I view baseball Opening Day as the same as Christmas morning. It is one of my favorite times of the year.
