To Mo, Or Not To Mo
I need some help here, and asking for your opinion.
I’m going to the Mets game tonight. I own one “authentic” Mets jersey — a home black Mo Vaughn, #42. It was a gift.
Despite his bust of a career with the Mets, Mo was and remains one of my favorite all-time Mets — it’s a personal thing (I played against him in college, and for years afterward when we bumped into each other at various off-field places, he always remembered me as a former foe and treated me like a friend. He may have issues with overeating, but he’s a class act.).
Obviously, wearing a Mo Vaughn jersey to a game at Shea is slightly less humiliating than walking around stripped, tarred, and feathered. However, every time I’ve taken it out of the mothballs and braved the jeers, sneers, and laughter, the Mets have won. Maybe it’s complete coincidence. Considering that Mo Vaughn is a glaring symbol of the downfall of the Mets early in the 21st century, you would think that the jersey would bring bad karma into the Stadium — so I’m pessimistic of its potential in the way of magical powers.
So here’s the question — do I wear the Mo Vaughn jersey tonight, or no?
