Baseball’s Punchline

It’s a good baseball game when the first batter hits a home run and the opposing team’s reliever delivers a strikeout in the top of the ninth with a runner on third to win.

The St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 3-2.

Rightly or wrongly, whenever I hear the words, “New York Mets,” one specific reaction comes to mind. This sports team has quite the history, yet they are subjected to relentless scrutiny from fans and casual viewers alike. Despite famous supporters like Jerry Seinfeld and Jon Stewart, the team is clouded by a certain stigma.

Before the first pitch of tonight’s game between the “Amazin’ Mets” and the Cardinals in the new picturesque Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis with its famous arch beyond the outfield, one video was playing on repeat in my mind.

Even if you’re not a fan of Family Guy, the talking baby Stewie is right on the money here…

Now that’s amazingly funny.
