Our frequent Zisk commentator Theresa noted how the guys in the booth last night discussed how weird post rain delay games can be:
"They talked a lot about the weirdness of post-rain delay play, and the different atmosphere brought by a few, big-mouthed, die-hard fans in the stands. Ron remembered, "You can see who's yelling at you! So I was like, 'I'm trying, you know!? Give me a second!'"
As someone who made it through the three-hour delay last night, I can vouch for the amazing amount of heckling that started once the Mets took the lead. Variations of "Yankees Suck! Jeter Swallows" were common as was making fun of the two idiots wearing Yankee shirts amongst the crowd of 2500 hundred or so die hard Mets fans. Two guys ragged on Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramírez the entire game with every insult in the book and more, and there was no way he couldn't hear exactly what they were saying.
Besides the three hour rain delay, everything was coming up threes last night:
--This was my third game in six days.
--My friend Brian scored tickets on the third base line
--Only three of us stayed until the game started
--Before leaving the guy who ended up splitting, Dave S., let out three antibiotic-powered farts that almost killed us...even though we were outside.
--It was the third time Damion Easley hit a home run at a game I attended this season.
--And I got home exactly at 3 a.m.
Does anyone think they'll actually get all three Subway Series games in this weekend?
