Sunday night, we were watching the Yankees at the Mets because, well, there wasn't anything better on TV Sunday night.
For once, ESPN showed an entertaining replay. All day yesterday I was searching teh internets for the video clip, but the only mention I could find was in this Mets fanblog.
Finally, on the first place I looked (YouTube), someone posted it, which I just found this morning...
I love that they show it in slo-mo.
ETA: Well, looks like MLB cried copyright infringement, because the video's down. Which sucks because as far as I can tell, neither MLB or ESPN have posted a legal video of something people obviously want to see. Damnit. However, looking for another posting, I did find this blog, which says Top 9th: They're showing this video on ESPN of a Shea groundskeeper rolling out a piece of turf. When the turf unrolls, a tiny kitten jumps out and scurries away. This begs the question: Are there stray cats living in Shea Stadium? Shouldn't that be dealt with? Where will the cats go when CitiField opens?
Obviously, I've heard about the black cat out on the field in 1969 right before the Mets turned around their season, but I always sort of assumed some fan brought that cat and released it. Thinking about it now, though, who would give up a pet so heartlessly, and how would you sneak a cat into Shea Stadium? I guess there have been stray cats living in Shea all along. This is blowing my mind.
I think this is cool.
ETA part 2: There's another YouTube offering up, and I've linked to it.
