I'm usually distracted when I watch a Mets game ... for one reason or another. But never so distracted that I don't really have a handle of what's going on. Well it took until Game 154, but it finally came to the point where I was so distracted, disinterested in what was going on that at two different points on Tuesday evening I looked up, noticed there was a baseball game on the television and said to myself: "Is this game still going?"The fact that it took this long for me to be that disinterested in a Mets game speaks to my ability ... to be insane. Because really, why do I still care? Why do I still yell at Justin Turner when he bobbles a ground ball (because it's fun) or when he takes a hard turn towards second base after a throwing error and then gets tagged out going back to first base (because he deserves it) or when he demands that the Mets play that awful Call Me Maybe song before each at-bat (because my ears continue to bleed) even after 154 game...
