More to report on this breaking news of Mike and Chris talking to each other on their day off. It was not, I repeat, not, a phone call. Earlier reports of a phone call happening are bogus and the musings of an insane blogger.
Mike and Chris saw each other at Shea Stadium, where they both were attending the Mets Giants ballgame. How do you think this went down.. a few options...
1. Mike and Chris are at the urinals in the Shea bathrooms. Mike tending to his business, Chris tending to his. Mike and Chris look up at the same time. Chris says "hey." Mike says "the press bathrooms were closed." They walk out and don't speak again till today.
2. Chris is standing on line for some food, a hot dog, maybe a pretzel and from the front of the line he hears in a booming voice with a familiar accent "YES I WANT A KEG FILLED WITH DIET COKE AND BROUGHT TO MY SEAT." Chris smiles, utters the words "asshole" to himself and then as Mike walks up the line and back to his seat with some poor usher now carrying a keg filled with Diet Coke on his back, Chris says "hey Mikey, how ya doing pal?" Mike says "This is why the Mets will always be second class. This is why we need a new Yankee stadium." And walks away.
3. Chris and Mike sit next to each other throughout the game. They share a Diet Coke sipping it at the same time with two straws. They both go after a foul pop hit by Carlos Beltran, Mike catches it and hands it to Chris, their hands linger on each other for an uncomfortable moment. They pull away and then in unison say "Beltran never should've bunted in the first inning." The laugh, hug, hug some more and then Chris wipes a tear away.
