- Not All Coal Turns Into Diamonds

- The New York Mess
They video many a soap opera in New York City but no soap opera fan would miss an episode of As the Mets Turn. The New York Mets may always be the understudy to the Yankees and they have gone through the ringer as sports teams go. But still they have some very loyal fans and a beautiful new ballpark. Recently Met ownership sunk to a new low as principle owner Fred Wilpon mocked nearly all of his top players, while comparing his team to a pile of poop. Definitely an out… in fact JoTo gives them 3 outs.
