They’ve flashed a cute picture of some kid wearing Mets garb on SNY every game this season as my dear Karen and I have watched our squad.
The feature is called the Data Strong Fan of the Game.
I finally grew weary of all these youngsters getting a shout-out from Gary Cohen on TV.
I thought the photo that Karen took of me posing with Mr. Met in the museum in Citi Field was at least as good as this parade of youth.
I paid attention to the rules of the game.
I tweeted the shot to #SNYDataStrongFan earlier this week and went about my business.
Yeah, good judgment.
When Karen and I got home from the Syracuse game at the Carrier Dome Friday night, I noticed a text from my friend and fellow Mets fan Rich Sullivan that he’d spotted me on that night’s broadcast. Then I noticed a Tweet from my friend Sarah Moses, with the screen capture I swiped and posted above. And there were two messages from my friends Tom Merrick and Jimmy Johnson on my Facebook page.
Yes, me and Mr. Met were on SNY together during the Mets-Marlins game.
And Karen and I missed it.
Figures, doesn’t it? I wonder what Gary said about the photo. He and Keith Hernandez or Ron Darling always have something nice to say about the little ones.
Have you entered any sort of TV contest and had your name broadcast as the winner? Would you send your photo in? Worthy winner or should I have left the spot for another kid?
