I have to admit that I actually don’t mind the Mets. I mean, they’ve never really given me a reason NOT to like them but this I just can’t ignore…
In fact, the only thing that might be worse is if that baby’s take was aired on the team’s official broadcast after an opening day loss.
Because it’s the Mets, both things actually happened.
Of course they did.
First, Stewie Griffin of Fox’s “Family Guy” uttered a funny bit about the Mets during one of last fall’s episodes and it quickly spread around the Internet.
SNY head honchos likely had the same reaction as Stewie because the NY Post described them as “seething.” A network rep told the paper that it was “a very poor decision” by an employee and that it was being dealt with “internally.”
I gotta give major props to the SportsNet TV editor (or intern, as MMango and I believe) cause that work of pop culture integration into the game broadcast was pure genius. Not only was the clip insanely appropriate for but Stewie’s hat throw at the end had me doubled-over with pure happiness and ended up garnering a lot of stares from my co-workers. And if the Mets are getting this snarky in pre-season, I can only imagine what the rest of the season is going to look like. Something tells me it’s going to look a lot like what I imagine Gwyneth Paltrow’s apartment looked like last night when she saw Ri-Ri perform with Sugarland at the ACM’s last night (not EVERYONE can be a country singer!); or perhaps the moment Heidi Montag underwent a shit ton of plastic surgery only to be told The Hills was being cancelled and her career was over before it really even started. Such a shame…
