Groundhog Day

Game 136 - Mets

Marlins 4, Mets 3
Record: 75-61
1st Place in NL East by 1 measly game over PHL

I'll watch whatever minutes are left in The Shawshank Redemption just about every time I come across it on some cable station. (And TBS airs it with every bit of the regularity that MTV shows some crap reality program.) Same goes for Bull Durham, Butch Cassidy, and, of course, Dumb & Dumber.

I've watched repeats of every episode from the first season of Cheers over and over and over and over again. And I'll continue to do so, presumably for all my days. (The snipe hunt one is impeccable.)

I'll stay tuned through any footage from the 1986 New York Mets that pops on my screen -- without any drop-off in enthusiasm for it. Still gets me fired up.

I'll throw on and hunker down for Stop Making Sense, the "Sabotage" video, Live By the Bay, and pretty much anything Joe Strummer was even loosely affiliated with -- it's the same stuff every time, but you can notice something new with each viewing, and it just holds up through repeated screenings.

But I cannot, simply can . . . not . . . sit through yet another of these formulaic, tired, played out Met games. Score early, then not. Maintain a lead, then not. Have the game in hand, then not.

Optimistic about the Mets chances.

Then not.

The ergo baby carrier is a great alternative to the stroller or hand held carrier for your baby transportation needs. Like most other carriers, it allows you to stay close to your baby while freeing up your hands for other activities such as household chores and banking. Ergo has been in business for about 15 years and has produced quality baby toys, bouncers, and crib accessories. Their ergo baby carrier sale was made with comfort in mind.The Ergo Baby Carrier comes in two types: extended wear and fashion.
