Mighty was standing on line at the Post Office in Valley Stream, when the guy in front of him said, “Let’s Go Mets!” Mighty was wearing a Mets hat.
“I actually root for all the New York teams. Just happened to be wearing this hat today.”
The guy went on to say, “I’m also a Mets fan, but about 20 years ago, my friend gave me a New York Yankees hat for my birthday. In fact, Paul O’Neill signed the hat.”
“How’d that happen?” Mighty asked.
“I was at a Bon Jovi concert at Giants Stadium, and noticed Paul O’Neill in the VIP section. I asked O’Neill to sign my Yankee hat and he did.”
“Did you tell O’Neill that you’re a Mets fan?”
“No. I also have a Knicks hat signed by John Starks, but I never told him I’m a Nets fan. Those two hats will sit in my trophy case, never to be worn again.”
Mighty had no play on Sunday and likes the Lightning on Monday.
The deficit is 80 sirignanos.
