Angry Ward Sunday: Better than Nothing!

BRONX, NY – Throwing this up here at 9-something PM Sunday evening. I just cannot abide a “did not show.” It was Short Matt’s birthday yesterday, so he can consider this his gift. What he really needs is a new car, but he doesn’t pay me anything, so I don’t have that kinda cash laying around. Anyway… here’s nothing.

The Mets have no offense, but they still may have good enough pitching to win the NL East. I mean, their starting pitching is, even with the injury hiccups, better than almost everyone. That said, they need someone, anyone, who can consistently put the damn bat on the ball. There will be trades to be made.

Every time I start getting pissed about the Mets, the Yankees come along and cheer me up… at least this year. If Gerrit Cole is really nowhere near as good without sticky stuff, then the Yankees starting rotation is garbage right now. If Cole doesn’t find his former form, then the Bombers are saddled with his and Stanton’s contracts for a very, very long time. Tough Darts.

Okay, I’m done. Come back tomorrow, for someone? Hopefully?

Angry Ward, who has admirers at the New York Times, is the quintessential angry sports fan but for one exception... he's flat-out funny. And the angrier he gets, the more amusing his work becomes. Psychiatrists say, "Angry Ward's 'anger' is a direct result of "Bronx/Mets syndrome: growing up in the Bronx as a Mets fan." As if that weren't enough, his Minnesota North Stars abandoned him for Dallas, forcing him to embrace The Wild the way Nancy Pelosi embraces Mitch McConnell at charity events. And while his Vikings only tease him with success, his Golden State Warriors actually win these days. A-Dubya is MTM's longest-tenured indentured servant, its Larry David and quite simply, "The Franchise." (Junoir Blaber disputes this). Vent, curse and giggle with him on Angry Ward Wednesdays.
