Something Seems Familiar …
Dan at LoneStar Mets hit the nail on the head with the Mets’ recent plunge into the depths of loserville: it’s like the movie Groundhog Day, where Bill Murray can’t escape the worst day of his life — every morning he wakes up and the awfulness begins again. There are two key issues of this entrapment: first, he knows the minute he wakes up that the day is going to be absolutely terrible — filled with bad luck, poor timing, and other uncontrollable events that make the day miserable; and second, he has no clue how to remove himself from this evil cycle.
Somehow, this day off doesn’t make anything better. The fact that there won’t be a loss today is comforting, but 24 hours without a chance to change things only gives us more time to magnify the situation.
