Quiet day for me, so it’s a light Snack tonight.
Congrats are in order for human Mr. Met doppleganger David Wright, and his wife Molly, on the birth of their daughter. They named her… well, you’ll see.
He’s such a devoted Mets captain, he even named his daughter after their old stadium!
Shea Stadium now has two kids named after it. As we all know, Chipper Jones, noted crown prince of trolls and confirmed Mets killer, named his son Shea as well. Shea was the first place ol’ Larry hit a home run in the majors.
As stadium/children names go, Shea is a classic. Sounds like old money, doesn’t it? I went to high school with a girl named Shea, and as far as I know, her parents were not Mets fans.
What other stadiums might work for naming your children after them? If you’re an Orioles fan, you could do worse than Camden. But do what Davey Wright did, and go for the middle name on this one, otherwise you’ll sound pretentious. Braves fans could have gone with Turner, but after this year that option is done, I suppose.
Dogs might benefit better from classic stadium names. Wrigley is the name of Derek Holland’s dog, while I’m sure there are many pups in New England that are called Fenway.
Anyway, all this to say that I’m very happy for Davey and Molly and hope their little bundle of baseball joy brightens their world.
