There is a strange thing going on for Mets fans. Their team is winning. And not just here and there. They're on a streak. A real streak. Like a ten-game streak that could extend to 11 if they win on Thursday.
You know the last time 11 straight wins happened? 1990.
And while many Mets fans may be anxiously sweating it out through the innings, we've already won the day. Yes, that's right.
Because on Thursday, Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon (who's looking to extend his own record to 4-0) just gave Citi Field the best play yet. He tagged out the Atlanta Braves' A.J. Pierzynski as he stepped off first trying to steal second during the sixth inning.
Colon, by the way, is 41 years old, 5-foot-11 and ... 283 pounds.
Not that his size held back ol' twinkle toes.
