I took the day off today. No, not because I am depressed about the Mets and couldn’t drag my ass to work. I have other things going on in life, thankfully.
Here in the fine state of Indiana, at least in my town, it is a sunny and beautiful day. It’s crisp, but a welcome change to the gloom that we have been dished out pretty much all winter/spring.
It is the kind of day where you can’t help but feel good about almost everything. The right music is coming up on my Ipod, everyone I encounter seems to be in a good mood, the birds are chirping….you get the point. Life is grand.
So I started wondering. Maybe, the 2011 Mets are just not cold/gloomy weather capable. I mean, they played well in Spring Training and took two of three in Miami didn’t they? After that they have been consumed by shitty weather everywhere they have played.
Who knows, maybe when the weather turns this team will start to play better. It might be too late by then, but it can’t hurt to wonder.
Don’t worry. There is no need to think I have completely lost it. I’m not turning into a hippie or anything. I realize I am clutching at straws here.
Just wondering out loud is all. When things are going bad and you have no answers as to why, you tend to try and rationalize. No matter how ridiculous it seems.
I’ve decided not to count tonight’s game in the DDG standings. The Mets have already disappointed us so the game is pretty much a wash.
