He's always smiling, and his he has a huge baseball where his head should be.He's Mr. Met, the NY Mets team mascot.
If the Mets get to the World Series, or win it, then Mr. Met will be the King of New York for a long, long time.
New York has been a Yankees' town for the past couple of decades. But it was a Mets town in the 1960s, in the mid 1980s, and we may be entering a new National League reign right now. Last night, as the last out was made by Shawn Green in right field, there was a changing of the guard in New York. Its a Met town again.
And, up in the Bronx, the knives are being sharpened for both Joe Torre and ARod. This offseason will not be pretty in Yankee Stadium.
