Time Flies

It was five years ago today I started this blog.

I guess today is my blogoversary.

(Editor's note: The traditional five year gift is wood. So, will you guys hit already?)

A sincere thanks to everyone who was a part of this madness, whether it be those who comment, those who link to me, those who I have befriended, and to my family who puts up with me.

I plan to commemorate this in a big way. Stay tuned ... y'all will find out soon enough.

Happy Blogoversary Metstradamus. I am not much for comments (this is my first one) but I have been a avid reader for three years now. Thanks for the laughs.

homebrewed said...

It's the other way around..when I see a new post, I get wood...

:-D

Metstradamus said...

Weesle: Okay. But if the three of you want the expensive seats, I may have to call Oprah in on this.

Rusty: No, thank you. And please come back.

Homebrewed, you might want to see a doctor about that.

wood ? Boy, you left yourself wide open!

Nice work, keep it up!

Trash Man said...

Congrats Metstra on the anniversary. No matter how frustrated I get with the Mets, your blog always brings a laugh, just when I need it the most. You're the Keith Hernandez of Mets Blogs.

The Mets celebrated your blogoversary in style tonight with that doubleheader sweep! This looks like a totally different team...can't believe I will say this, but I'm actually a bit optimistic for the first time in about a year and a half.

Happy Blogoversary Metstra and keep up the great work. I've been reading since 2007 and your posts have certainly helped me through these rough seasons!

Tina said...

Happy anniversary - glad the boys could give you a good day! (Well, Ollie was not so much on board - maybe he's seen your work.)

G-Fafif said...

Like Angel Berroa, you've had some success.

MetFanMac said...

"wood ? Boy, you left yourself wide open!"

Hur hur hur *smack* OW!

Happy Blogoversary... here's to the next five years!

Steve Johnson said...

Happy anniversary Metsra!

One of the things that makes being a Met fan bearable is knowing that your acerbic rants will hilariously dissect whatever ridiculous situations this inept organization constantly finds itself in.

calzone said...

congrats damus. Here's to another 5 if the Mets don't kill us first.

Steve Johnson said...

P.S. I still laugh to myself every time I walk through the not Angel Berrora Rotunda.

"Angel had some success against Arizona."

Well, only been here for two of them but love it. I nice relief from Mutsblog Rah-Rah. You and Bitter Bill at the Daily News reflect my views and keep me laughing. "The Stimulus" might be the all time great nick name. Good luck!
Cheers,

Schneck said...

Happy Metsraversary! This site has made many a day brighter since I found it a few years ago. Thanks for sharing your wit and wisdom.

FeceMcGee said...

Oh and btw, in addition to Ike "The Stimulus" Davis, I'd like to submit Hisanori "Bail Out" Takahashi for your approval...

Happy blogoversary! Hope you get a nice card from Victor Zambrano.

metsfanincincy said...

Five years?! Awesome! It's been great comiserating with yo on-line.

Demitri said...

Congrats, and most of all, thank you. This is really more than a blog, it is a support group and counseling service to Mets fans.

I live in the Philly suburbs surrounded by Phillies fans (one of them is in my family), so your site is a welcome outlet and forum for me.

Keep up the great work!

YT Crooks said...

Happy Blogoversary!

It looks like you got your gift with the wood...I mean 10-5, pretty awesome. And 5-3 right now ain't too shabby!

Happy Blogoversary! And thanks for helping us cry through our tears...

James Allen said...

Additional generic compliment, Metstradamus.

Keeping hitting them out of the park, leaving everything on the field, taking it one game at a time, keeping within yourself, doing What it Takes to Win, being gritty, getting your blog dirty, and, always, taking one for the team.

Jason said...

Happy Blogoversary Metstradamus.

I am a relatively new blogger, and reader, but have enjoyed your posts since coming across your blog.

I can only hope I'll be going as strong five years from now.

Metstradamus said...

Thank you all for your kind wishes.

SCHRECK! said...

Happy Blogoversary! Just discovered this ridiculousness at the end of last season and now I can't stop checking in every day. Keep up the good work!

Let's Go METS!

Dan said...

Congrats on the anniversary, mestra, and on having one of the awesomest, serially entertaining blogs going.

So, these Mets, maybe they can be something this year…

John said...

Really, my therapist should be leaving this thank you, Metstra. Thanks to your cathartic rants, I now very rarely greet people by screaming "Heilman," and then weeping uncontrollably.

Krup said...

Happy Happy Joy Joy Metstradamus! Now, where the hell is your post about our team being in FIRST PLACE?!?!?!?!?!

Metstradamus said...

Krup, I promise it will all be clear soon. Very soon.

Schneck said...

off the anniversary topic:

Mestra, didn't you come up with the nickname "The Stimulus" for Ike Davis? Apparently he is aware of it and now there's a poster!!

http://www.metsblog.com/2010/04/29/picture-the-stimulus/

I hope your royalty checks are in the mail!

Krup said...

i'm confident you'll come through for us (and perhaps douse us with a bit of reality)
