Mike Piazza walked up to bat against Steve Karsay in the bottom of the eighth, the Mets trailing the Braves 2-1.

For those of you who know me, I am a diehard Mets fan. As tragic as it may seem, it’s how I was raised. I grew up watching “The Amazins” (if we can even still seriously call them that) with my dad. My dad is a Mets fan, so I am a Mets fan. Simple as that. Consequently, my sister Rebecca is, or maybe now I should say WAS, a Mets fan too.

Meaningful basketball is always played at Madison Square Garden every year. Whether it’s the Big East Tournament, or more recently, the Big Ten Tournament, there is championship level basketball played at the Garden.
