    The You Didn't Disappoint Bongo Moment of the Year

    You are all familar with my favorite graphic that I copped from botto:



    A treasured image to be sure. In keeping with that, I couldn't help but be reminded of it while watching a recent NY Mets game. Carlos Delgado, the highly paid Mets first baseman, comes to bat with the bases loaded, mired in an unmitigated horrific slump. He had been getting booed lately @ Shea. But this time, the man any Mets fan would LEAST want to come up in a pressure situation of late got a boost from the crowd. He did not get booed that time.

    The gave Carlos a standing O as he stepped to the plate. This was very surprising, but there it was. The crowd saying 'we still love you Carlos no matter how bad you've sucked recently'. It was awesome. A pitch or two later **CRACK** he slaps a key two RBI single, breaking an 0-17 hitless stretch. The most anti-Disappoint Bongo moment of the year so far. What does this have to do with road bike racing?

    Who cares? And if you think all sports besides cycling suck, you are:

    1.) Incorrect

    2.) In the right place

    Not as silly as a Cubs fan.

    The You Actually DID Disappoint Bongo Moment of the Year will occur when the Cubs make the playoffs at long last, and the Mets sweep them in 3 games.

    You should put this in foo or something. This is not road cycling.

    The Bad Guys Won was my second favorite sports book after 'Lance's War'. Outstanding read.

    I do have the autographed picture of this on my wall, along with my ticket stubs from the game (I was there with my Dad):

    Recursive is quite reminiscent of that little tattletale that would always rat you and your pals out to Mom whenever you did anything 'bad' as a kid.

    We should move him to the Whiner Section and report him to the Road Nazis.

    foo RULES. But I have no time for this. I have to get a rare 30 mile post-pcad workday ride in (I typically ride in the AM) and prepare for the Mets vs. Phillies game on TV tonight.

    That's what I was going for. The "Mods!" at the end was supposed to evoke exactly that. I'm glad my work is appreciated.

    This thread's primary purpose was to flush out all the anti-foo whiners.

    Mission accomplished. Now shut up and ride your bikes. In the meantime, all you Sox fans should return to the Red Sox Nation. The next time you attempt to enter the US proper, we will require passports.

    Arguments about baseball make me happy that I grew up in Pittsburgh, where we don't have a professional team to get worked up about.

    Yeah, if I never have to watch another baseball game, it will be too soon. It's not as bad to play as it is to watch, but it's close.

    We USED to have a professional team to cheer about until that candy-armed jerk-off steriod junky left fielder couldnt throw out Sid Bream, who made Bill Buckner look fast yet scored from SECOND BASE, on a hard hit ground ball to deep short. That was the end of the Pirates as a professional franchise and the end of baseball for MDcatV.
