I am perhaps the most adorable GIF of the tournament. Someone in the Mets' control room errantly activated the Home Run Apple when the Mets weren't even at bat. The game was delayed while the Apple made its shameful retreat.
Did I say control room? Mm. The Mets don't seem to me like the sort of organization where they would actually designate a room for the purposes of operating things or making decisions. I'm seeing a giant warehouse in Flushing with a giant lottery wheel, and a gaggle of nine-year-olds chucking M-80s at a Buick, and Gregg Jefferies sound asleep on a pack mule being guided by the reins by a clown, and Kevin Elster shrieking about plans for opening a chain of affordable motels to compete with Howard Johnson, and Steve Trachsel trying to make snow angels in a kiddie pool. I don't want to see that ever again.
