Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), known for his hawkish foreign policy outlook, is trying his hand at writing about his beloved New York Mets on his Facebook page.
After the New York team won its first World Series game on Friday, King, whose district is in Long Island, published a lengthy post praising Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard -- who has the nickname "Thor" -- and the rest of the team.
"The superhero god Thor strode powerfully from the pages of mythology onto the CitField [sic] mound last night as Noah Syndergaard vanquished the Kansas City Royals and led the Mets to a dominant 9-3 victory," King began his post, which was titled "Syndergaard Stops Royals Cold on Frigid Night at Citi Field."
King then praised Syndergaard, who brushed back the first batter he saw with a fastball.
"The message was clear: Thor would go right at the Royals all night. Home plate belonged to him not to the interlopers from Kansas City," he said
King has been writing a lot about the Mets on Facebook, and the detailed posts are interspersed with others about more official business, like voting for Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for speaker, chairing a hearing of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence and supporting the reauthorization of the Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.
At the end of his post on Friday, King seemed optimistic that the Mets would even up the series on Saturday night.
"All in all a terrific win for the Mets and their fans on a brutally cold Queens night and a sharp rebuttal for those doubters who were ready ready to count the Metropolitans out. Thor has spoken! Let's Go Mets!!," he wrote.
