Bob Costas vs. the NY Mets

by Greg Pollowitz

Here’s the quote that has Mets fans and players angry:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis, just up from Triple-A, takes Carlos Marmol deep. Nieuwenuis with a three-run, walk-off home run. The Mets with four in the bottom of the ninth to win it, 4-3, and a team fourteen games under .500 celebrates as if it just won the seventh game of the World Series. Another indication of the ongoing decline of western civilization.”

Lighten up, Bob.
