Enter Old Man

If the top moment for fans so far this season at Citi Field has been Billy Wagner entering the game in the eighth inning of an eventual Mets loss that propelled the team to 14.5 games out of first place all while the opening riff of Metallica's "Enter Sandman" blared over the P.A., then that is a sad statement about the Mets' 2009. Perhaps they should knock down Citi Field and just rebuild Shea.

And if I were Billy Wagner, I'd have changed my entrance tune when I became a Met in deference to the rival closer across town who just happens to be the best and classiest guy in the business. But I doubt Billy Wagner knows what "a deference" is.

Yankee fans who whine about Wagner using that song are a lot like Lars whining about illegal downloads.

You mean the song he'd been using for as long (if not longer) than Mariano has? Should everyone on the Mets consider the feelings of every single Yankees player before they do anything? "Jose Reyes should be ashamed of himself for switch hitting--Mickey Mantle did it first!"

Glad to see we're still hammering Mike Francesa shit-stirring talking points from 3 years ago.

Satire -
the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.

The Cardinals were the first team west of the Mississippi River to use a similar song called "Bring in the Sanded Man." It's a calliope tune.

If I were an MLB closer, my entrance tune would be "Send In The Clowns!" Because I am a clown! LULSLSLLZ!!!

Enter Sandman is in E minor.


I was going to make a "vas deference" joke, but I couldn't spit it out.
