Shamed no more

After 17 years and 11 games, the Mets won with me in the stands. What an afternoon! I'm numb, and that was before the 6.5-hour drive back to Michigan.

I'll have a full report of a weekend with the Mets, Reds and baseball buddies tomorrow. Meanwhile, take a look at the scoreboard. I haven't seen that result since I was 27.

Thank you to everyone who called, e-mailed and texted kind words all the way home. Greg called moments after Billy Wagner struck out jay Bruce and caught me giddy, weepy and probably incoherent.

It was just a baseball game, and yet, it was ... everything!

Congrats on the victory Dave and breaking the streak. Kathy and I were at the "Last Play at Shea" on Friday. It was the best concert I have ever been to!! Check it out:

I knew it would just take persistence (and the brick ;) ).
