Mets put it all together in 2015

Even though the N.Y. Mets shocked the baseball world by going from lovable losers to World Champions in 1969, I was too young to have any first hand memories of that team .   I believe I became Mets fan around the age of about 6 or 7 due in part of family relatives recalling stories about the 1969 "Miracle Mets" team. Since we lived in Poughkeepsie N.Y. , I was able to watch all the Mets games on the local television  broadcasts.  Moreover, with the neighborhood kids we collected and traded baseball cards and who wouldn't like this, as a thin pink slice of bubble gum came with every pack. Even to this day, I still remember the Mets songs like "Meet the Mets" and songs from commercials like "Shaefer beer is one beer to have when you are having more than one". Right about time I became a big fan of Mets, the Mets team was going down hill. But, we didn't even care. Just loved baseball and the team. #LGM

Gator Ball is back

The Florida Gators played a "clean" game against New Mexico State. [box]

The Monday morning press conference is coming up [link]

Passing offense - Rank 9th Florida via NCAA
Defense - Rank 20th  Florida via NCAA

link - The Gators played nine true freshmen in the opener -- tailbacks Jordan Scarlett and Jordan Cronkrite, wide receiver Antonio Callaway, tight end Camrin Knight, center Tyler Jordan, offensive tackle Fred Johnson, defensive end Cece Jefferson, cornerback Chris Williamson and safety Kylan Johnson. Maybe the Irish are just that good.

link - Maybe Jeff Driskel found the perfect landing spot in Louisiana Tech (threw for four touchdowns, ran for one). Maybe Tennessee’s secondary is horrible. Maybe Florida has two legit quarterbacks. Maybe Kansas will never recover from the Charlie Weis disaster. Or maybe it was just week one.
