Tag Archive: New York Mets


It’s been a busy week for English royalty in the sports world, with Queen Elizabeth attending a few tennis matches at Wimbledon and Prince Harry throwing out the first pitch at a Mets game.

To my and most likely all the present photographers dismay, the prince put out a pretty good throw. I’d imagine the Queen throwing a baseball is in my top five list of things to see at a sporting event.

Lady Gaga caused quite a stir last Friday when she intruded into the Yankees clubhouse after a Yankees loss to the Mets, just a couple of weeks after she flipped off the crowd at Citi Field during a Mets game.

She showed up to the Yankees game on Friday in Yankees attire, and talked her way past security after the game to get into the Yankees clubhouse. She reportedly met Robinson Cano and a few other Yankees players.

Actor and comedian Jerry Seinfeld went on the radio with WFAN’s Steve Somers to talk about things including the Mets before he joins Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez in the booth tonight, and of course Lady Gaga came up.

Seinfeld eventually went  on to say, regarding Lady Gaga, that “This woman is a jerk. I hate her. You give people the finger and you get upgraded?” You can listen to the entire 20 minute conversation here.

I’ve yet to hear a response by Lady Gaga, or rather Lady Gaga’s publicist, but with all the hype this story has been getting I’m sure we’ll see one soon.

Vitamin Water’s newest commercial with David Wright of the New York Mets takes a little bit of a twist, featuring Mike Sorrentino, aka The Situation, from MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore.

Probably the most overused song ever, the Rocky theme song, plays while Wright and The Situation work out. They go through the motions with workouts like jogging, sit ups, weightlifting, and of course David practicing his baseball swing on the Jersey Shore star’s abs.
