I did deserve the bird at Dodger Stadium…

Ok, this was October 1988 (20 years ago) during the National League Championship Series.  I was in the bleachers to see my beloved New York Mets (I was a fan due to the 1986 World Series, I am not from New York – sorry….) play the Los Angeles Dodgers on their home turf.  I knew better than to wear my Mets hat.  Anyway the Dodgers won that game and the stadium erupted.  As I was exiting the game, a guy came up to me and said “Hey Man, shake my hand!” whereupon I said “Why?”, and he said “Cause the Dodgers Won”, and I said “No I was for the Mets” and he said “Well F*()*(* You Kid” and that was completely and utterly lame on my part, it didn’t matter that I was 12.   Anyway, a week later an injured Kirk Gibson hit a pinch hit home run in Game 1 of the World Series to ignite the Dodgers to a World Championship over the Oakland A’s and the Mets sulked off to cocaine and yachts or whatever they did in 1988….  In conclusion, I completely deserved the finger for not shaking a guy’s hand after his home team won a playoff game.  If it’s any consolation I am now a Pittsburgh Pirates fan and they have not had a winning season since 1992 (When George H.W. Bush was president).
