Down for the next few days…

Saturday, July 15th, 2006

I have had a small emergency happen this weekend at home. Don’t worry, I’m okay, but I’m not going to have an update until possibly the middle of next week. We’re not going away forever, but I’m not going to be able to update. I’ll be back with more next week.

Something tomorrow

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

I have something I want to write about, that I didn’t have enough time to do justice today, but I’ll have it up tomorrow before Mets/Red Sox (and what a huge series that is). Sorry about that, but in return, I promise a quality article will be up tomorrow.

No recaps this weekend – sorry

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

It was out of my hands. My Tivo froze last night, keeping me from being able to watch Mets/Blue Jays (not that I would have wanted to watch that abomination) and my internet went out today, which kept me from being able to watch today’s game over the internet (it wasn’t available on Extra Innings) so I saw neither game. A split of the final two games is not a bad way to end the series, as I’ll take 2 out of 3 on the road against a tough Blue Jays team. To make up for it, I’ll have something for you tomorrow.

Hey, a contest

Friday, June 23rd, 2006

Do you, faithful reader of MiracleMets.net, want the chance to have the “ultimate job”? I know that if I were to pick an ultimate job, it’d be something like…oh, I don’t know, an official MLB.com blog that came with a trip for two to the All Star game, with on-field press credentials, an interview with an all-star player, and $2,000. Luckily, Monster.com is offering you, that’s right, YOU (and whomever else enters the contest) a chance to win just that! Aren’t they great? Yeah, it’s their Ultimate Job at the All Star Game contest. You can win all of that, which sounds pretty cool to me. Heck, I’d settle just for the on-field press credentials and the $2,000. If you click on the banner on the right-hand side, you can enter for a chance to win all of that, so give it a shot. All I ask is that if a reader from this site wins the blog, you tell them who referred you there and plug your friend Cox at MiracleMets.net. Can you do that for a brother?

Back tomorrow…

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

Sorry about the lack of updates, but last night at work I suffered some injuries, including a sprained ankle, and thus did not watch last night’s game, nor did I watch today’s game. Sorry about the disjointed week, but I had fully anticipated doing updates these last two days before I got hurt. I’ll be back with the big first game of the Mets/Yankees series tomorrow night. Again, sorry about that.

No update today – again

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

I haven’t been able to access my Blogger account all day, which is why I got no update up. Don’t worry, I’ll post some links tomorrow sometime, and will get a nightly game recap for you.

In a bit of Mets-inspired news today, I finally picked up the DVDs for the ‘86 World Series today. What I’d like to do is review every single DVD in the package one at a time on Mets off days, so that way I’m watching the Mets even when they’re not playing. Now, I was not a huge baseball fan in 1986 by any stretch of the imagination. All I recall is, when I was seven, watching part of the Series with my grandfather, but it wasn’t like I watched an entire game or anything. But I didn’t really start getting into bsaeball until 1989 (which was right after the first Mets’ glory era ended; what a great time to jump on the bandwagon, eh?) so I will be watching each of these games for the first time.

Though I’ve read about them since, I’ve never actually watched them, so my reactions to these games will be my first reactions to ever having seen them live. I can’t wait to start this, it’s something I’m actually very excited about. The first DVD in the set is Game 6 of the NLCS between the Mets and Astros. It just figures that the first game of the set is the longest game in the history of baseball playoffs, huh? Anyway, I look forward to sitting down and watching that, and it looks like that will be a week from today, on May 22nd. It looks like I would be finishing this project up during the All Star break, so it’s a nice gimmick that should help keep the site full of content on non-Mets game nights for the next few months.

Also, I’m going to do another Live Game Update this coming Sunday night, when the Mets play the Yankees. I liked the first one I did, though I felt like I could improve the format some, and have some ideas about changing that come Sunday that I think will help it flow a little better. Plus, Mets/Yankees just seems like an appropriate game to bring that idea back for, so we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully, this one will end with a Mets victory, unlike the last one.

That’s about all for tonight, sorry about not getting anything up today, we’ll amend that with some stuff tomorrow, see you then.

No update today

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Sorry, I’ve been out of the house all day and do not have time to watch the Mets/Brewers game I recorded. I did happen to see, accidentally, that the Mets won, and since I recorded the game, I’ll watch it tomorrow and leave comments about it. In the meantime, hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day.

Sorry we haven’t had an update here

Monday, March 27th, 2006

This hasn’t been a great couple of days for me, as my grandfather passed away last week. That effectively wiped out my free time the past few days, as I’ve had things to take care of with the family and such, and plus, I just haven’t felt up to getting a good update up. My feeling was, if I can’t get anything good up, don’t put up anything at all. But I’m back, and hopefully we’re done with things getting in my way, and from here on out we’ll be good with updates here at Miracle Mets. For those who have been sticking around, I appreciate it, and we’ll keep things going here full-steam from here on out. Thanks.

Bit of a roadbump

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

Sorry (again) for the lack of updates, but I got a bit of sad news this week, and I haven’t been able to get back into gear for this. Fear not, I’ll be back within a day or two, but again, sorry for the lack of updates.

I’m back

Monday, March 20th, 2006

I’m still getting back in the swing of things on the home front, but at some point tonight, I’ll have a new update for everybody. Thanks again to Joe for all of his help in updating the site in the past week, it was very much appreciated, and we’ll have more for you tonight. Thanks for reading.
