Jon Stewart on the 2011 Mets Season!

 

Yesterday afternoon I was lucky enough to attend my third taping of The Daily Show.  If you have never been, before the taping of the show begins, Jon Stewart comes out and takes some questions from the audience.  Yesterdays included ones on Libya, Oprah (?), and his birthday, but I manged to get in the final question (he only takes five or so).  So what did I ask?  Why, his thoughts on the upcoming 2011 NY Mets season.

Obviously, I can't remember the response word for word, but it started out something along the lines of (paraphrasing here), "They're hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, the number three starter was throwing knuckleballs in Buffalo last year, and Beltran's knee should hold up for the first half - the first half of opening day, that is."  He then mentioned Madoff, used an obscenity that I won't print here, and said "Can't wait for the season!"  It was funny (timing is everything, and my story is not doing his words justice) and there were a good amount of Mets fans in the audience, as one guy started yelling out "R.A. Dickey!"  with a few others joining in.
