Spiderman... Mets fan
I bet you didn't know Spiderman was a Mets fan.
It makes sense. I think Peter Parker was from Queens and he had that unlucky Mets quality to his non superhero life.
In this clip from The Electric Company, he takes a break from crime fighting to catch a game at Shea. There he meets up with the super villain "The Wall", whose diabolical plot seems to be to create cheap home runs for the other team.
So Spiderman comes down to the field to help the Mets and is berated by Morgan Freeman.
Folks, that was the single greatest sentence ever written in the history of mankind.
You'd think the Mets would try to make a clearer link to Spiderman.
Maybe instead of constantly honoring the Brooklyn Dodgers, they could have a Spiderman day or have wall for kids to climb up.
If Spiderman were real, no doubt they could sign him. The Mets could pay him more than the Daily Bugle.
But they'd probably find a way to mess it up and they'd have to eat HIS salary too.
I wonder what "Gumbo" Grace Ivy would be making today. (No doubt the "Tom" he is referring to on the mound is Mr. Seaver.)

Spider-Man plays the saxophone outside of Shea, I mean Citi Field after every game.ReplyDelete
Great stuff, Sully. I loved "The Electric Company" as a kid.ReplyDelete
You have to remember also that when "The Electric Company" was in its heyday, the Mets owned New York. There are many Mets references during the show's early-mid 1970s run. The Yankees were the other team in town then, and they were hardly ever mentioned on the show.
An actor dressed as Spider Man got married to an actress dressed as Mary Jane at home plat at Shea before a game, I believe in the '80s.ReplyDelete
In 1987 that happened, along with some dude as the Hulk, lol.Delete
Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.ReplyDelete
