The Denver Broncos’ new quarterback, Peyton Manning, was on hand to watch the Mets take on the Rockies at Coors field on Sunday.  Manning was the backup QB (albeit briefly) behind Todd Helton at Tennessee.  He cheered on his old teammate when Helton blasted a game-tying grand slam.  But Manning also spent some time catching up with another former Volunteer, R.A Dickey of the Mets.  Here they are before the game:

One throws a spiral, the other throws the exact opposite.


We Like[d] Ike!

Ike Davis gives me headaches. I throw on the Mets game after a friend told me what Kung Fo Panda just did. After watching Dillon Gee struggle, I get to watch Ike Davis strike out looking with the bases load in the 8th inning against the San Francisco Giants. The Mets would lose 7-2.

After striking out, Davis properly mutters something he shouldn’t have, and throws his bat like an underhand toss. He un-straps his batting gloves and proceeds to look up to the sky as if the answers lie there. But the answers lie in his attitude at the plate.
