Last night during the ninth inning, the NY Mets were up big against the LA Dodgers. The Metropolitans were just one inning away from their first playoff win at Citi Field and then this happens:
Steve Bartman 2.0 comes out of nowhere and reaches over the fence, giving the Dodgers’ Howie Kendrick a three-run Home Run with zero outs left.
If you want to know the face of Mets fans everywhere, look no further than this man right here.
Astonished. Angry. Murderous. In fact, if Bartman 2.0 didn’t look like such a dweeb I think that the old man there would have killed him on the spot.
But seriously, what was Bartman 2.0 thinking? That’s a Dodger HR, you’re a Mets fan. You can’t keep the ball, you’ve gotta throw it back. And yes, I know, this kid probably feels so embarrassed that he won’t be attending any more of the games his parents bought him season tickets to, but still. This is the Playoffs. You can’t leave anything to chance.
