Let's play multiple-choice trivia, since my plans for a couple lengthy essays were scuttled by a 12-hour workday.

Which Sports Night character did the proprietor of this blog most resemble during Fernando Tatis's home run? No hints, other than to say that if you read my blog two years ago, you might recall the reference.

A- Danny
He was embarassing himself during a conversation with Hillary Clinton at the time of the Tatis HR.

B- Jeremy
He was playing sports trivia in a local bar with an adult film actress/choreoanimator at the time of the Tatis HR.

C- Isaac
He was in the bathroom at the time of the Tatis HR

D- Dana
He was at a showing of "The Lion King" at the time of the Tatis HR

I'll keep you all in suspense...The answer is in the comments section.

True Metnights know...Sports Night debuted on September 22, 1998, a dark day in Mets history, at it marked the start of their season-ending 5-game losing streak.

I was most resembling Isaac (played by Robert Guillaume), who was in the bathroom at the Polo Grounds and missed Bobby Thomson's pennant-winning home run in 1951.

Actually, to be more specific, he was washing his hands when the homerun occured.

Cliff Notes

Alright, so it's 2 days later and the challenge for me now, after reading through about a dozen game stories and listening to talk radio, is to provide a fresh perspective on walk-off #324. If you're going to be a serious reader of this blog, you know what happened already, so let's look at what made this particular walk-off stand out. It would seem that the place to start is with the idea that everything broke just right on both sides of the ball. Particularly, I'm talking about Carlos Beltran's catch in the 7th inning, where he went over the center field fence to rob Jose Molina of a home run. Every no-hitter seems to have one defensive gem that makes it possible and perhaps that's true of great walk-off moments as well (We'll be looking into that!) Marlon Anderson's home run required a remarkable combination of events. It was only the sixth inside-the-park home run at Shea Stadium by a Met and the first since Darryl Strawberry in 1989. It required t

Mets Top 100 Home Runs: No. 2 Darryl Strawberry Clocks One

In 2009, I did a project for my website, Mets Walk-Offs and Other Minutiae, celebrating the best home runs in Mets history. I selected the top 60 regular season home runs and the top 15 postseason home runs. The reason I picked 60 was because it represented the top 1% of home runs in Mets history (and 15 just felt right for postseason). This was fun to do, but it was imperfect. I had one egregious omission. I tended to favor oddities. It’s time to give that project an update. And why not do it as a top 100? The Mets have hit 7,671 regular season home runs. The top 80 represent about the top 1%. And the top 20 postseason home runs get us to an even 100 to celebrate. Come along for the ride. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the reminiscing. Hopefully you’ll find it Amazin.'  Before I get into the details of this one, I want to note a couple of home runs that didn’t make the list. Two days before the Mets played the Cardinals in the series that decided the NL East title
