Mr. Met Mystery Solved!

Thank god, the beheading of Mr. Met from the debate the other night turns out to have been a HOAX! That wasn’t the real Mr. Met, who we all know is not a costumed mascot but a rabid Mets fan suffering from a pituitary inflammation. The real Mr. Met wears uniform 00 and this impostor wore no number.

It turns out that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and thus Robert Smigel were doing a bit for the Conan O’Brien television program. Phew!

Mr. Met is a Mr. Man!

Deadspin received this video from last night’s debate recaps on Fox News where we finally learn what is inside the head of Mr. Met. Another HEAD! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! This could have been totally traumatic if any kids were watching, but it being Fox News, if kids were watching they are already brain damaged so… ZING!

It’s just so scary to see behind the curtains sometimes.

Mr. Met is Omar Minaya’s Executioner

Jon Stewart loves the Mets, and so he opened up yesterday’s Daily Show with a great bit regrading the firing of Willie Randolph and just who it was that made the final call.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“You want to meet the Mets? Why don’t you meet Mr. Met? I’ll meet you in the fucking parking lot!”

I Thought He Was Filled With Candy…

Mr. Redlegs has been the mascot for the Cincinnati Reds for quite some time and he does quite the job for them too. He dances, he shoots t-shirt cannons, he carries around a giant bat and is always ready for a good Warriors-style brawl. It seems he has limitations though, among them, riding on the back of an ATV.

I have to imagine he destroyed some children’s imaginations when his head came off. I for one am angry because I always believed that Mr. Redlegs and Mr. Met were aliens from another planet where everyone had giant baseball heads. Now I’m starting to rethink that. I don’t know if I can ever return to those halycon days, I’m lost now, sputtering into the wind…
