Nope not the fact that financial instutions are going under, but the Mets, the New York Mets are the cause of the Panic of 2008. This is the follow up to the horror film, the Panic of 2007. A few returning stars, some new ones, Jerry Manuel in for Willie Randolph brings a little bit more humor to the part as opposed to Willie's method approach...
The score as i type this is 1-0 Cubs and according to Mike Francesa, if the Mets lose tonight, PANIC will set in on the Mets, on their fans, on the city, maybe even in the bunker in Astoria from where he broadcasts.
And do not bother to scoreboard watch by the way because the Phils, according to Mike will not lose again. Of this he is certain.
We do have a fair share of Mets fans tonight, so if ya wanna panic, you might as well do it with strangers with fake names. So sit down at the couch, ignore your wife, your girlfriend, your dog, your cat, your Nintendo Wii, the upcoming election, the state of the nation, the state of yourself, ignore it all and simply watch the game and share with your friends here at Mike and the Mad Blog as the Mets 2008 season hangs on the cliff.
