Alex Rodriguez: Possibly Satan

The hit miniseries on THE HISTORY CHANNEL "THE BIBLE" has received some notoriety with some people thinking that the actor cast as Satan bore a resemblance to President Obama

But when you put Alex Rodriguez right next to Satan, and especially if you to imagine Alex in 30 or more years, do you see it?  After all, when healthy, A-ROD does play for the Evil Empire.

Perhaps we all see the evil in people that we choose to see.

Mets Look To Capitalize On Good Start By Adding New Promotional Dates

Let's face it.  Mets attendance has been on a down slope for a few years and the current edition of the team - have you noticed a decided lack of outfielders(?) - figures to continue the trend.

Since the club knows that their promotional dates do increase attendance, at least a little, they are scrambling to find more give aways and people to honor.

Here are three new promotions just announced by the team's crack PR department:

APRIL 28th  "See Wheeler and D'Arnaud in action day"

No Mets fans, these two highly touted prospects will not be on the Mets at this time and won't be at CitiField even if you will be. But the Las Vegas 51's (no offense but is that really a great name for a team from that city?  How about the Rolling Crappers?) have a home game scheduled that afternoon vs Tacoma while the Mets will be finishing up their "game" with Philadelphia on that Sunday afternoon.

Once the 51's' game starts it will be showed in its entirety on the big scoreboard.  Actually they'll stop showing the game when D'Arnaud and Wheeler are both removed from the game.

Get your tickets now to see the future stars for the Amazin's.

Say It Isn't So: #CaptainShorts Ditches Shorts In Favor Of Pants, #MetsTwitter Explodes

In a moment of weakness, our hero Captain Shorts gave in to the cold weather and wore, and it pains me to say this...pants.

Mets Twitter did not react well to this...

David Wright Returns From The Future To Warn Mets Fans Of Impending Doom

The Mets have won their opener for a truly amazin' 34th time in 52 tries. These victories are typically followed by the traditional overreaction by fans and media. For a few days, Colin Cowgill is surely headed for Cooperstown and Jon Niese is one win closer to his inevitable 28 win season.

Unfortunately, all that excitement was cut short today at the Mets pre-game presser when a mysterious figure materialized out of a glowing orb at Citi Field and immediately called a press conference. The figure turned out to be none other then Mets captain David Wright, but from 7 years in the future.

Wright told reporters that this is a key point in shaping the future of this team and proceeded to explain how things went down in his timeline:

It's Time: Mets Opening Day In Pictures

It's sometimes hard to explain to other people what Opening Day means to us fans.  I've tried to capture the experience, from tailgate to pre-game to the post game high five from Captain Shorts in a four minute music video using pictures I took as well as additional photography from Sharon Chapman, Kerel Cooper, Paul Hadsall, Shannon Shark, Alejandra Villa and Laura Lapidus. The track is "It's Time" by Imagine Dragons. Enjoy!
