I've taken plenty of shots at the Boston sports radio hosts and the callers over the years. But this next topic that has been the "hot" topic in the NY airwaves tops anything that I have ever heard in Boston by a longshot on the ridiculous scale. We all know that Billy Wagner was signed by the Mets to a $43 million contract in the offseason. And we also know that the other NY team has a pretty good closer, except when he pitches against the Red Sox. Well, apparantly they both enter the game to the tune of "Enter Sandman." This is just completely unacceptable to the Yankee fans.
Wagner began using Enter Sandman 10 years ago when he was in Houston upon the suggestion of Jeff Bagwell. Rivera started using the song after Wagner. Actually the PA announcer at Yankee Stadium chose it for him and Rivera didn't even know who Metallica was. Well, Yankee fans are up in arms that this guy who plays for the Mets can come into NY and use the same song.
Regardless of the ludicrousness of this argument, this apparantly is all that Mike and the Mad Dog are discussing on the Fan. It even gained a little more momentum when Wagner came in and gave up a 9th inning HR and blew a save in a game that the Mets lost in extra innings. The obvious, but still clever, saying was Exit Sandman.
Well, this only proves the point that all NY fans are idiots.
