Regardless what the final fate of the 2009 Boston Red Sox is at least we can hang our hats on the fact that they are not the New York Mets. That is not a dig on the Mets or their fans, okay it kind of is, but this was too good not to pass along.
The Wall Street Journal took the time to put together a Monopoly board detailing the tragedy that is the 2009 New York Mets, entitled Metssloppily. By far my favorite is the Money for Nothing on the right hand side of the board where we discover the Mets will pay Bobby Bonilla $1.1 in deferred salary from 2011-2035 totaling just under 22 million dollars if my math is correct, and it's probably not.
Mets fans will lay awake at night knowing they will live in the shadows of The Curse of Bobby Bonilla until at least 2035, possibly longer if the final figures of the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme are ever revealed.
Let me finally say that I will be first in line to buy the 2009 New York Mets DVD when it's released in stores, probably titled, The 2009 NY Mets, at Least They Weren't the Jets. The DVD is essentially going to be a 1 hour and 30 minute long blooper reel.
