Bermuda: Feel the Love

Bermuda triangleSo the latest big news from Metsville is that Bermuda has been named the “official in-season travel destination of the New York Mets”.

I’m not even sure what that means … but, OK … whatever.

According to the press release:

As the official travel destination of the Mets during the 2008 season, Bermuda will be offering ticket holders the chance to “Feel the Love” for the island paradise throughout the entire season with prizes and giveaways. During each of the 81 home games, one randomly selected Mets fan will get the chance to win a trip for two during the “Bermuda Feel the Love Grand Slam Inning” when a Mets player hits a home run during the specially designated inning.

Great, I guess … but there’s this queasy feeling in my stomach because of the whole “Bermuda Triangle” thing. Last year’s collapse was unreal enough, we don’t need to be seeking paranormal relationships. Unless, of course, you’re a staunch advocate of BABIP and don’t believe in such forces as the baseball gods.
