They’re finally here. The Dog Days of Summer have arrived. They’ve been lingering for a while. We got lucky this year though, we’ve put them off as long as we could. Between the Rangers Stanley Cup run and the World Cup, it came a lot later this year. Now all we have is baseball. And for the two esteemed bloggers at 1minutesportsblog, it means the Mets. Speaking of the bunch, they fell 10 games under .500 for the first time this season. The Mets haven’t made me depressed yet because to be quite honest I’ve had better things to watch, like the World Cup and the Stanley Cup. I give it a week before I have thoughts of commanding a drone strike on Citi Field and turning it into a parking lot.
