The New York Metropolitans did a remarkable thing last night, they became the first team in Mariano Rivera's otherworldly career to beat him in a game where he doesn't record an out.
It will be the highlight of the season. The Mets are predictably horrible--'OARIBBLE in Long Islandese--so it will be a long summer of reading writers pile on. It would be nice if some of them could take the extra step of not including the hackneyed reference to Bobby Bonilla's deferred money payout. It's meaningless. You writers can do better, even if the Mets can't.
One thing to ease this dude's pain? The Classical has a fantastic new tablet magazine. If you enjoy well-written pieces by scribes who don't go for the obvious tired shorthand, then this is for you. Trust me for once.
