Bright and hot these fireworks were

The Syracuse Mets organization knows what to do when a weekend game ends. Toss T-shirts out to fans. Then shoot fireworks off for the crowd. This night’s were very colorful. Smoky, too. A big piece of casing came down on my arm. At least I did not spot a fire such as the one reported…

My daughter thinks the Syracuse Mets rock
