Over the last few weeks I have changed my stance and fully embraced the claw. Back on June 24th I was a little more leery about it,
“Does it bother anyone that the Mets have adopted a version of the Claw when they get a hit? As far as I’m concerned, I don’t lose sleep over it, but I will admit the first time I saw Jose and crew throw up their long distance high-five I felt a twinge of disappointment that the guys didn’t come up with something more original.” -Me
In honor of this realization I wanted to share with you the inaugural edition of Air Claws and Errors, which may or not become a regular series depending on how bored I get with it.
It’s pretty simple, I’ll share random things that I witnessed or experienced during a day and throw up an Air Claw for the cool shit, and score an error for the not so cool shit.
Air Claws and Errors for July 23, 2011
Claws- for the offensive performances of Jose Reyes, Justin Turner, David Wright (two more RBIs), and Carlos Beltran.
Claw- for Lucas Duda’s first home run this season.
Error- for Mets losing to the Marlins 8-5.
Errors- for Chris Capuano’s sixth inning and his second loss this week.
Claw- for the double fudge cookie dough blizzard I enjoyed. Damn that thing was tasty.
Error- for yesterday’s muggy heat. This garbage is getting old.
Claw- for beating yesterday’s muggy heat by enjoying some cold beverages and swimming at my friend’s house who happens to be one of the three other Mets fans in Muncie, Indiana.
Error- for the mosquitoes that decided to feast on my ankles throughout the day. Stupid blood sucking bastards.
Claw- for hot dogs with cheese inside of them. One of the world’s unexplained miracles.
