Need a Mother’s day plan even your HUSBAND will get excited about? Spend the day at a Mets Game and we have two tickets to give away!!

Congrats to our winner Yonatan!

I’ll be honest my husband is not the type of guy who will sit next to me and get a clear polish manicure as I get my Essie Velvet Voyuer one. In fact the one time we had a couples massage he complained how the masseuse  was HURTING HIM! So when it comes to hoping for a day of pampering with my man on Mother’s day– he has assured me I can go and he will wait on the car. Which I say a big BOO to! I mean on Mother’s day one of the people I want to spend the day with reflecting on all the trials, joys, and craziness that parenthood has and continues to bring to my daily life- is my parent partner in crime- my husband. And so it’s always been a bit of a balancing act- trying to find the quintessential Mother’s day family activity – one that will benefit everyone and which doesn’t involve my hands needing to clear a table or clean a dish.

So- what could possibly be the ULTIMATE Mother’s day outing for us as a family- an event that EVERYONE will enjoy??

    While nothing beats the Mets’ 1986 World Series victory, for sheer improbable joy one need look no farther than the day in May 2005 when the Legend of Dae-Sung koo was born. Koo was a 35 year old rookie pitcher out of Korea, signed by the Mets, who were desperate for left-handed bullpen help. An unknown commodity, Koo spent only one season on a big league roster. But he made a name for himself in a big subway series matchup against the hated Yankees, who usually dominated the Mets. Clinging to a slim late-inning lead, the Mets brought in Koo to get some big outs, and that he did. But it was his performance at the plate and on the basepaths that would forever resonate with those lucky enough to be watching. Koo, who had never had a major league at bat, was called upon to bat against the six foot ten Randy Johnson — a pitcher so feared, especially by left handed batters, that even all-star hitters like John Kruk and Larry Walker were known to bail out against the pitcher with the sometimes wild 99 mile per hour fastball against which they had no chance. Koo, as luck would have it, was a left-handed batter, and it was inevitable that he would strike out, if he could even stand in the batter’s box without his body trembling and knees buckling against the mighty, terrifying Johnson. After taking a couple of blazing fastballs that he may not have even seen, Koo swung at the next pitch and did the impossible. He drove the ball deep into center field, over the heads of the stunned outfielders, and raced into second base with the most improbable of doubles. But the fun was not yet over. The next batter, speedy lead-off hitter Jose Reyes, was called upon to sacrifice — just lay the ball down so that Koo might scamper safely to third base. But Koo had bigger things on his mind. Reyes laid down a fine bunt and Koo sprinted toward third, his pitchers’ jacket increasing his mass but not slowing his speed. Suddenly, shockingly, Koo spied Yankees catcher Jorge Posada out of position, and Koo made a daring, mad dash toward home plate. Caught hopelessly off guard, Posada raced back in time to take the hurried thrown home and threw down the tag just a split second too late to get Koo, who was sprawling head first around the bag, and stretching to reach it with his hand. The call was safe, and immortality was bestowed upon Dae-Sung Koo. Koo’s double was the only hit he would ever record in the major leagues, and his outstretched belly flop toward the plate was the only run he would ever score. And yes, the Mets won the ballgame.

    We all remember, “A little roller up along first.” But the eighth inning comeback against the Braves was the greatest moment in Mets history, for Mets fans. Probably the most exiting win. Like probably many Mets fans watching at home that Friday night, I turned the television off at some point during what looked like another Braves romp over the Mets. For some reason though I decided to flip the television back on, and I happened to turn it on just after Zeile singled home Piazza to make it 8-3 with 2 outs in the 8th. Something told me that the game wasn’t quite over, though common sense said it was. Then Jay Payton singled, then Agbayani walked to load the bases, then two more walks and it was 8-5. Hmmmm. In comes Terry Mulholland, and Derek Bell walked to make it 8-6. So up comes Edgardo Alfonzo, and he raps a single, and the game is freaking tied, and Shea is going bananas. Piazza strolls the plate, and there probably weren’t too many people who didn’t know what was going to happen next, including poor Terry Mulholland. Sure enough, Mikey hits a screaming liner that is out in about .5 seconds, and my GOD! The Mets are up 11-8. In comes Benitez who puts the tying runs on base, but sure enough he closes it out! The Mets complete the amazing comeback.
