“Dad, It’s Only A Game”…

…said a then four year old “wise man” to his ranting pop when some rally fell short or a fly ball was dropped in extra innings. “No, Phillip, this is a Mets game.” He shook his head and gave me a look I’ll never forget… Last night when the “beloveds” failed to come through as I hoped they would, the memory of his expression helped put things in perspective. Sure it would be nice if they rebound today and then clinch the pennant tomorrow and then win the World Serious [sic], and repeat next year and the next year after that. But if not, thanks to Phillip, I’ll get over it. After all, it’s only a game… That having been said, LET’S GO METS!
