If you haven't seen this story yet, brace yourself for utter and total embarrassment.
It appears some senior citizens in Long Island have some advice for the New York Mets. In fact they had so much knowledge and skills about baseball that they thought the Mets lacked that they put together an instructional video for the team.
The video covers such rare, but essential tips like catching the ball with two hands or tagging up on a fly ball or keeping your eye on the ball as you swing.
It's just another chapter in the utter and total disgrace that is becoming the 2009 Mets.
According to a Newsday article "Claiming that they understand the fundamentals of the game more than the Mets, the Bristal team will focus on a number of basic plays." Wow. These guys actually think they know more than the Mets. The sad part is they might be right.
If you're waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop out and claim he's just punk'd the Mets, don't hold your breath. This is the real thing.
And oddly enough, I'm kind of hoping the Mets watch the video.
