Mets at Rockies, 6/20/08 (ZaBlanc on TV!)

<p>Last night, my wife, little Cedric Shea, buddy Nick, and I went to see the Mets take on those scrappy Rockies.  Last year was a disaster, and we lost the series in May, so I was pleading to get a win in this tumultous time to be a Mets fan.

Obviously, the game was quite pleasing! ;-)  Mets win 7-2, putting on a hit parade!  Ironically, I knew things would go well in the 1st inning after the Mets went down 1-2-3 and the Rockies took a 2-0 lead.  You see, I decided to videotape just ONE pitch, and I just happened to pick the 2-run homer that put the Rockies ahead early.  Here it is:

<p>The sucker came right at us!  Luckily, the other Rockie hits that came us were snagged by one Endy Chavez, flashing some leather out in right field!

Another funny thing, we ended up on TV twice thanks to location, location, location.  On both homers to right, by Baker and Nixon, you will see a guy wearing a stark orange shirt.  Can't miss it.  The Nixon homer practically runs right through me.  Yep, it's me!  To my left is my wife.  Now, if only they were hit a little further...
