I put Nancy’s name first in the headline because she was clearly the star of this early 1970s commercial for Phillips 66 gas. Boy was she beautiful. As far as Tom Seaver, he looks like Ted Chaough from “Mad Men,” what with his turtle neck and sports coat. While neither of them are particularly good […]
Here are two interesting pieces of video. Back in 1975 when the Yankees were in the middle of their two-year sojourn into Shea Stadium, they held a pre-game ceremony to mark the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Army. They gave the traditional 21-gun salute, but somehow the force from the cannon explosion knocked down part […]
The Mets on Monday released their unintentionally hilarious holiday video for 2013, and, well, let’s just say the players should not quit their day jobs (which some of them are not very good at, as well).

I don’t like Jimmy Fallon, but he did something pretty funny the other day — he sent Matt Harvey out onto the streets of New York to talk to Mets fans about… Matt Harvey. Lots of people didn’t recognize him. So really, it was Harvey who was funny, not the unfunny Fallon.
David Wright videotaped a message to Mets fans, thanking them for voting him the starting third baseman in the All-Star game.
