Where does the good go

Dawnie’s choice

Oh, for those of you wondering, the last post has nothing to do with me staring down the reality of a Yankees/Phillies matchup. Although, all morning I have been enjoying the banter of my fellow Mets fans making their peace with one camp or the other. The stalwart Mets fan deciding that back to back championships would make Philly fans too unbearably cocky, so he’d rather root root root for the home team. Another diehard blue and oranger reasoned that he’d rather watch Yankees fans suffer the humiliation of getting to the World Series and losing for the second time this decade, so he’s donning the proverbial red cap.
I however, nicely summed up my views in the following e-mail:

Tsk, tsk. My fellow Mets fans, you all think too small.
We hate the Yankees.
We hate the Phillies.
Why torture yourselves with questions of which hatred is stronger, which rooting will cause less vomiting and face meltage? As someone who has unfortunately had a recent experience with horrible unthinkable sports impossibilities coming true, I present you with eleven words that will change your life. Are you sitting down? 2009 is the year the World Series of Baseball was canceled.
It’s true. Happened to the Superbowl a couple of years ago. These are freaky occurrences, no one has any control over them, but you shrug your shoulders and move on…be it to hockey or basketball or football or…scotch.
Mets ’10!

Reason number 2 why Dawn Summers is so awesome: she does not accept reality as it is, she bends reality to what it should be.

Go Riots!

    I don’t remember the Superbowl ever being canceled. The World Series, yes, in 1994.

    The Pats losing to the Giants in Superbowl XLIII does *not* count as there not having been a Superbowl!

    Hahah and in case, you were looking for yet another reason why Jamie isn’t awesome: ladies & gents, there you have it.

    She does indeed bend reality to what she thinks it should be. Nicely done, oh omnipotent one.

    BTW, still waiting for even an acknowledgment of my gift to you.

    Hmm…I didn’t get anything since my stacey’s pita snacks…is it more stacey’s pita chips?? Cause I like stacey’s pita chips and I’m all done with your last shipment. You know what, I’m going to go ahead and assume that it is stacey’s pita chips and thank you for my stacey’s pita chips! Thanks for the stacey’s pita chips, jamie!

    That’s not good. I definitely sent you, totally out of the blue and for no other reason than I thought it was totally you, a gift. I don’t even want to say what it is for fear it will ruin the eventual surprise.

    Here’s the USPS tracking number:
