    can't wait to see what kind of April Fool's idiocy plays out this year.

    I could've sworn this was before 1985 — like '81 or '82. Oh well, time flies.

    Looking back, what I love is Lenny Dykstra being one of the unknown Mets prospects playing along with the story.

    I can imagine what the conservation would be: "Dude, you got some serious f---ing cheese, Dude. Can I interest you in some IRAs?"

    Gooden and Finch would have been an awesome 1-2 punch, that is, until Sidd discovered cocaine.

    My next-door neighbor my freshman year in college was a huge Mets fan. He couldn't contain his enthusiasm.
