Something I’ve NEVER Done Before…. (DRIVES with DAVE Podcast #8)

Now, don’t get this twisted….I’m a Yankees’ fan FOR LIFE!!

But, I have to pay the New York Mets a compliment.

As the saying goes: ‘There’s a first time for everything’.

There is LITERALLY NO DOWNSIDE to Steve Cohen owning the Mets.

A WIN For The Mets?!?!

Today, I speak to you Mets’ fans.

Today, I’m not going to ridicule, insult, or poke fun.

Today, I simply ask you to rejoice.

I wanted to let the dust settle before I reacted to the sale of the New York Mets because “don’t count your chickens before they hatch” carries a lot of weight these days.

It was announced Friday, October 30th, 2020, that Steve Cohen’s purchase of the Mets would be approved by Major League Baseball’s Ownership committee (26-4). I want to talk to those 4 idiots..I have so many questions.

Cohen, who already held a minority stake in the team, will now purchase a 95% stake, becoming the majority owner of the New York Mets (yes, the other 5% will belong to the Wilpon and Katz families).

So, long disgruntled Mets’ fans, what say you?!?!

Happiest day of your sports’ lives? Waiting for the other shoe to drop? This won’t change anything, the Mets will find a way to screw this up?

No matter the side of the fence you reside, I want to hear from you…

Outside of their World Series championships in 1969 and 1986, I think this is the BEST DAY in franchise history. No, that’s not hyperbole or exaggeration. Just google Steve Cohen’s net worth, add that to the fact that he’s a lifelong Mets’ fan, add that to the fact that he’s already agreed to restore all Mets’ employee’s pre-pandemic salaries, and add THAT to the fact that he’s already committed to donate millions to the New York City Economic Development Corporation to keep the surrounding Citi Field areas from crumbling into nothingness, and tell me where you still see ‘gloom and doom’.

SERIOUSLY, WHERE THE HELL IS THE DOWNSIDE????

Now, impatient people, clean out your ears and listen. The full fruits of your labor will not be seen right away. Yes, things will get better. Yes, the Mets will probably win another World Series in your lifetime. But, it won’t happen next season. So, sit back (for once), relax (for once), and enjoy (for once).

Mets’ fans, tell me how you really feel in the comment section below…

It’s OK To Hate The Houston Astros

My brain hurts.

Normally, I’d call that Tuesday, but I’ll blame 2004 for today’s headache. ON THIS DATE, 16 years ago, I was roaming the halls of my dorm at UMass with a broom (I had “borrowed”) from a random janitor’s closet. The New York Yankees held a 3-0 lead over the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS, I was decked out in my A-Rod jersey, and I was constantly 2.5 seconds away from an ass-kicking from any one of the 20,000 Mass-Hole, Red Sox fans that inhabited said University.

Despite the imminent danger I was putting myself in, I was overjoyed that the Yankees would be playing in another World Series.

Being able to rub it in the faces of so many Sawks fans was icing on the cake.

Then, Dave Roberts happened, and David Ortiz happened, and the rest is…you know the saying.

Sooo, Friday night, with a 7-4 victory, the Houston Astros joined the 2004 Boston Red Sox as the only teams in Major League Baseball history to force a game 7 after trailing 0-3 in a postseason series. I’m not going to waste time, or mince my words…

I HATE THE HOUSTON ASTROS!!

And I’m here to tell you it’s okay for you to hate them too. Don’t feel bad. They deserve your vitriol. You can’t just cheat your way to a championship, put on a sad, puppy-dog face, and expect everyone to feel bad for you. Then, when people remind you that you’re an asshole, act like the victim.

And while I’d gladly headbutt Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, or any other Houston Astros’ player within a head’s length, 99.9% of this diatribe is directed at Carlos Correa.

See, some people are just born with a punchable face. *Yes, 36-year old man, living in his mother’s basement, I’m aware punchable isn’t a word. Now, shut up, and keep reading.* Enter Carlos Correa. As talented as they come, wildly underachieving so far in his six-year career, there’s just something about Correa’s face you want to see in front of a Mike Tyson, in his prime, right-uppercut.

As a Yankees’ fan, it should be sacrilegious to root for the division rival Tampa Bay Rays, but I have been for the better part of a week now. And Saturday night will be no different (there may be some scotch involved this time though).

Do you hate the Houston Astros as much as I do?? Are you even watching the MLB Postseason?? If not, who do you hate?!

“This NEEDS To Be A MOVEMENT, Not A MOMENT!!” (DTS Podcast – #109)

THIS is important.

THIS has to enact change.

THIS needs to be bigger than YOU.

THIS is all there is.

 

If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.

“When I Look in The Mirror….I See YOU!!” (DTS Podcast – #108)

There is a MAJOR problem in this country.

And this problem will never be solved until we change our way of thinking.

We must ALL realize that we are the SAME.

That vital message needs to be heard by so many, and we can’t allow it to get lost in the mix.

Peaceful protests need to remain peaceful.

We must stand together, hand in hand, and fight for what’s right.

We can not allow the few to ruin it for the masses.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE!!

“I LOVE When Millionaires Complain About MONEY!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #104)

Sports leagues want to restart.

We want sports back.

Sports leagues are making it seem like they’re actually trying to start playing games again..soon.

And this has caused some players to start complaining about their salaries.

THIS VIDEO EXPLAINS WHY NONE OF THIS MATTERS!!!!

“I’m Living A Double Life!!” (DTS Podcast #98)

Madison Bumgarner isn’t who you think he is.

He’s ACTUALLY a rodeo roping CHAMPION!!

And, his name is REALLY Mason Saunders.

This HAS to rank as one of the dumbest things that has ever happened in the history of the world.

I hope the Diamondbacks void his contract before it even starts!!

“Rob Manfred Is A MORON!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #94

MLB Commissioner, Rob Manfred’s, annual Spring Training press conference turned into a slow-motion trainwreck.

The more he opened his big, fat mouth, the worse it got.

Oh, and Carlos Correa is the biggest liar of them all.

So much for sincerity!

Thank you Cody Bellinger. Let’s hope you never get caught cheating either….

“WORST. PRESS CONFERENCE. EVER!! (DTS PODCAST – #93)

The Houston Astros held an “apology” press conference.
A “damage control” tour if you will courtesy of their new PR Firm.
They should be promptly fired because this was the worst press conference in the history
of press conferences.
