A special Christmas treat for all of the Mets fans out there. This was written by CFoD reader, Donna Bauer. Very creative and very fun! It actually got me excited for 2011. LET’S GO METS! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!
N.Y. METS CHRISTMAS

T’WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND ALL THROUGH THE CLUBHOUSE 

NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING – NOT EVEN OLLIE THE LOUSE

THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG BY THE DUGOUT WITH CARE

IN HOPES THAT OUR GM SOON WOULD BE THERE

THE METS WERE NESTLED ALL SNUGG IN THEIR BEDS

WHILE VISIONS OF THE PHILS LOSING DANCED IN THEIR HEADS

AND THE MANAGER IN HIS PJ’S AND METS BASEBALL CAP

HAD JUST SETTLED DOWN FOR A SHORT WINTERS NAP

WHEN OUT ON THE DIAMOND THERE AROSE SUCH A CLATTER

HE SPRANG FROM THE BENCH TO SEE WHAT WAS THE MATTER

UP THE FIRST BASELINE HE FLEW IN A FLASH

TORE AROUND SECOND, TO 3RD IN A DASH

THEN ON TO HOME PLATE HE SURELY DID GO

AND WONDERED WHAT HE WAS DOING OUT THERE IN THE SNOW

WHEN WHAT TO HIS DISBELIEVING EYES SHOULD APPEAR

BUT A GORGEOUS D WRIGHTAND 8 OTHER METS DEAR

WITH A GREAT FRIENDLY SMILE SO LIVELY AND QUICK

HE THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT THIS MUST BE A TRICK

MORE RAPID THAN PHILLIES HIS METS SURELY CAME

WHEN HE WHISTLED AND SHOUTED AND CALLED THEM BY NAME

“NOW J BAY, NOW CARLOS, NOW JOSE, NOW PAGAN

ON R.A., ON DAVIS, ON THOLE, ON JOHAN

TO THE TIP OF THE WARNING TRACK, TO THE TOP OF THE WALL

GO HIT MONSTER HOME RUNS OVER IT ALL”

THEY SPOKE NOT A WORD BUT WENT STRAIGHT TO WORK

AND HIT TONS OF HOMERS, THEY CAN, ITS THEIR QUIRK

AND PICKING A BAT UP HE JUMPED TO HIS TOES

THEN IKE HIT A MONSTER – IT GOES AND IT GOES

HE RAN BACK TO THE BENCH, TO HIS TEAM GAVE A WHISTLE

AND AWAY THEY ALL RAN REAL SHARP AND NOT FICKLE

AND I HEARD THEM EXCLAIM AS THEY DROVE OUT OF SIGHT

WORLD SERIES WILL BE OURS AND TO THE PHILLIES GOOD NIGHT!!!!
