I don't mean to steal the thunder of the prior post, which is pretty funny so read it. But I've been meaning to mention this for a while and I don't want to forget again. If you are not from the New York area but enjoy following New York sports, I strongly suggest you go to www.wfan.com. WFAN is the local New York sports radio station and its got a lot of quality programming. Best of all, you can stream it for free from the website. I especially recommend you listen to Mike and the Mad Dog from 1 to 6:30 on weekdays.
One observation before I go: Last year, around September, October, when the Giants weren't doing so good, a lot of Giants fans would call up WFAN and whine about how Eli Manning had no fire, how he wasn't a leader, how he could never lead the team to a Super Bowl and how the Giants needed to get a new quarterback. Eli won the Super Bowl. Now everyone is calling to whine about how Willie Randolph has no fire and how he has to be fired so the Mets can finally start playing well. It just seems like a replay of the Giants drama. Mets fans, please shut up. It's May, we're not even at the all star break and you act like this team can't go on with Willie at the helm. Willie, except for last September, has been successful as the Mets manager. The worst is if the Mets turn it around, as the Giants did, I'll have to listen to the same jackasses call up and praise Randolph like they eventually did Manning. New York fans are smart, they know their teams, but my God are they emotional. They need to chill out and let the season be a little further under way before they start talking managerial changes. Just look at this last weekend. The Mets win two games and it goes from Willie won't last the weekend to his job is safe. It's a long season Mets fans, shut up for now.
