I must say, I started this blog in the beginning of February and I never thought I'd actually go this far with it. Or should I say that it would get this far (and this quickly). For me, I'm still in my mother's basement.
I never thought Mets Underground would get 7,000,000 hits a year, and frankly, it's going to come about 6,986,000 short. You can say my prediction is still going strong.
But for the few of you who, have returned through-out the weeks, are patient when I go on hiatus for days at a time, post a comment once-in-a-blue-moon, and have befriended me on Twitter and in the blogosphere, I want to thank you and let you know that I truly appreciate it.
Here is a list of the blog posts through out the year that I believe (mind my humility) were my best ones:
- I put out 3 posts revolving around Steve Somers.
One is about my overall analysis (and admitted man-crush) on the man.
A second includes a phone call between me and Steve shortly after my marriage in September. This convo was one of my greatest with the Radio Zaidy.
And a third, from way back when, another phone call, when Steve pressures me into a little bet, which I must say, had me come out on top when all was said and done.
For some dessert and from left field, I love the opening of this monologue belonging to Mr. Somers and presented the day after Christmas.
- I live-blogged an entire day of my life, which so happen to have been the first day I ever stepped foot into Citi Field (and watched the first ever Mets-Phillies game in Citi Field). I label it under: Humor. I titled it: Eli from Brooklyn in Flushing!
- A brilliant take on the YES Network Cast vs. SNY's Gary, Keith and Ron (and WFAN's crew).
- My first post ever (Re: Madoff).
- The NL East was caught acquiring weapons of Mets Destruction.
- A post I like to call, "The Yankee Tears".
- Thinking about changing the name of the New York Mets to ...
- My professed love for the off-season and my (awful, lol) 2009 Mets predictions for each player.
- A biblical-like post on Rookie Daniel Murphy.
- Comical analysis of Duaner Sanchez's career.
- Remember that guy who was abducted by Pirates? Well, I got comical yet again.
At this point, I got bored looking through my old posts. I was only in the middle of April, so feel free to prod around the section on the right for other admirable posts.
Until then, wishing all a happy and merry New Year's and the best to each and every one of you.
