Zero for three, but here come the Mets

As a supporter of Tottenham Hotspur, England rugby and cricket it has been a miserable weekend. Spurs lost a cup final in shoot out, the rugby players a dull squeaker against Ireland and the cricketers watched West Indies score their third highest total in history.

Praise be for the Mets. A 14-1 win over Houston and a good medical report for Johan Santana. Just 35 days to go til opening day and for the first time a real claim to be ‘America’s Team’ for the simple reason that Citi Field may  just be the only ball park in the country sponsored by the taxpayer.
