Merry Christmas

I’m not sure why, but a Mets nutcracker seems most appropriate today.

For those of you celebrating the holiday, I wish you a very, merry Christmas.

The rest of you, enjoy the movies and Chinese food!

    I think the planters nut is more appropriate. Merry Xmas.

      Though, I have a feeling we’ll be airing our grievances for quite a long time …. so leave the pole up …

    Merry Christmas, Joe! Let’s hope that our future Christmas holidays allow for better memories of the previous seasons. Meantime, a nutcracker is appropriate.

    All the best.

      Thanks Rob, and Merry Christmas to you and yours. Am I the only one feeling like my nuts are getting cracked by the Mets this year?
