YOUR Fashtinkiner Mets

My brother just reminded me that our dad, z'l, a Hungarian immigrant who, somehow, became a huge Dodgers and, later, Mets fan, would refer to the Mets in different ways depending on how they were doing.

When they were doing well, he would say, "How do you like my Mets?" When they were messing up, he would say, "What's happening to your fashtinkiner Mets".

He would not be very happy with your fashtinkiner Mets right now.

    When the Mets were in the tank, I would hear them called Shmets.

    Where has all the pitching gone?

    The righthand column ("Leave your comment") here cuts off long links shown in the lefthand column.
    Is there a cure for this at Blogger?
