Tim Byrdak Day

March 26, 2012

March 26, 2012.  A historic date.  Tim Byrdak has landed the first ever cover of the Facebook page

"Of Course I'm On The Cover."

Hailing from the village of Oak Lawn, Illinois, Byrdak was awarded the cover for the following reasons:

  • He is a Midwestropolitan
  • He does funny things with his facial hair
  • He is chubby, but not with child
  • Has a cool Twitter handle (@Givemethelefty)
  • He had the balls to go full out Hulk Hogan at Spring Training
  • He seems like a funny dude
  • He will probably start this season on the DL which is pretty damn appropriate for the Mets

I’ve been somewhat absent from the bitchin’ internet lately so I figured I would do this right by conducting a little research about #40. Of course, our staff’s research methodology consists of finding one video on Youtube.

For those of you too lazy to watch the video and learn.  Here’s the Cliff’s Notes version:

  • Timmy played for a special 1992 South Suburban College Bulldog Team (proud to be #3 in the nation in NJCAA basketball!).
  • He was either their ace or number two according to Coach Ruzich
  • He holds “numerous records”, also according to Coach R.
  • He worked at Target.  Overnight.
  • Something I didn’t know and am honestly impressed with is that he was away for the game for five years prior to coming back.

Congrats Timmy!  We’re proud to honor you with the Cover.

Setting The Table For A Steal?

June 14, 2011

Raise your hand if you thought the Mets were going to bungle tonight’s game when Niese left.  For those of you that didn’t raise your hands, you should be ashamed of yourselves for being such blatant fibbers.

I applauded Terry Collins for yanking Pedro Beato once Brian McCann was called on to pinch hit.  There was no better time to use his lefty then right there in the seventh inning.  Midwestropolitan, Tim Byrdak, did not disappoint fanning McPain In Our Ass as well as Diory Hernandez.

Timmy would get my game ball if this were little league and I was his coach.  He’ll probably settle for a beer from Jon Niese for helping him save his sixth win and his fourth consecutive quality start.  I would think Pedro Beato owes Byrdak a beer as well for bailing his ass out of trouble.

Jason Isringhausen is not looking so good.  He gutted his way through the eighth but almost wound up giving up back to back jacks to tie the game.  He has been and is someone we should keep an eye on.

What more can we say about Jose Reyes?

The Amazin’s put themselves in quite a lovely position to steal another series from the Braves.  With Gee and Dickey taking the hill the next two days I certainly feel good about the possibilities.
