Games like this, especially on getaway days, are not supposed to happen. Players are supposed to be excited about getting to the airport and drinking a few day beers, not making seven run comebacks.
And when I check to see how the Pirates are doing on a Thursday afternoon and see they’re up 7-0, I’m supposed to be able to return to doing actual things, secure in the knowledge that a victory will soon be had. What I’m not supposed to expect is 7 RBIs from the RBI whore tandem of Carlos Beltran and Ruben Tejada. 
It was the Mets biggest comeback since June 30, 2000, a time when we were all still reeling from Y2K not actually happening, so it was a completely different world. Just look at the movies we watched back then—A Perfect Storm, The Patriot and a variety of IMAX documentaries? Who were we?

    I’m sorry but yesterday’s game cannot even be compared with the June 30, 2000 game. That was quite possibly the greatest...

    Such an amazing first game of the year. Albeit a perplexing one.
