Let me be clear: If you have Twitter and don't retweet this, you suck.
I am so pumped for this to happen, and for Callie to stunt on all the haters at her prom. Callie seems like a super sweet, awesome, beautiful girl who deserves to have the best night of her life, and I'll be damned if we as Mets fans don't come together to give it to her. Don't disappoint me. As of this morning, it’s over 318,000 retweets. If you haven’t RTed, do it immediately.
My pre-prom was in my friend's backyard. My date and I really awkwardly took pictures together, as I was oblivious to the fact that he was going to make out with my best friend as soon as we got to the after party. I ate a bunch of catered sushi and carrots with hummus, adjusted my hair and makeup about 300 times, and hit the road. To be honest, as I type this, I'm getting really angry at my dad for not even offering to pull some strings to get me a picture with some Mets before my prom. I bet none of them would have hooked up with my tramp of a friend later that night.
And while we’re talking about proms and guys, I should mention that being a female sports fan isn’t always easy, especially when you’re young. And since we know that I'm the most single person in the state of New York, I’d like to share this fun little story. Last year at Passover dinner, my family friend came up to me and said, "I think I finally figured out why you can't meet a guy. You like sports too much. It's emasculating for the guy."
That’s another reason why I love that this is her request, because let me tell you right now, Callie: It's so much better to be single and true to yourself than to be someone you're not for a stupid, loser prom date who doesn't deserve you.
Not that I’m not over it or anything…
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
