This final 2011 edition of TWISNY was produced at home base, just outside SNY Studios in Midtown Manhattan.

SNY captured a colorful couple taking in Mets-Phils:


Quoth Ron Darling: "That is wrong on so many levels." Gary Cohen added "That was really odd." TWISNY can understand the fashion statement made by the bearded fan, but an explanation is needed for the Phanatic in the Mets jersey. Is it a voodoo doll? If yes, why put a Mets jersey on him? Why not dress him in a Jimmy Rollins jersey? So many questions which will forever be unanswered.

Let's check in with Kevin! R.A. Dickey had a no-hitter going in the seventh inning and Kevin let his 21,000+ Twitter followers know:


Kevin is a notorious jinx -- would he strike again? Yes, as Dickey gave up a double to Satan Victorino after 6.1 no-hit innings. The peanut gallery gave Kevin the business, and he was having none of it!


99.99 times out of 100, TWISNY does not believe in ghosts, spirits, curses or jinxes. But forgive us for holding on to the "don't mention 'no-hitter' during a no-hitter" policy.

And here's Ralph Kiner to cap it all off, with a bonus shot of Ron Darling sitting in the high chair:


TWISNY extends a sincere thank you to Gary, Keith, Ron and Ralph (okay, Kevin too) for yet another great season. We can't imagine watching the Mets without them.

That's all for this season. We'll be back sometime soon with a "best of" season in review. Thank you for reading.
