New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was in the crowd at the Mets game against the Cardinals at Citi Field on Tuesday night, and sat watching the game with little fanfare for the first few innings. That is until he caught a foul ball hit by Paul DeJong, and then everybody in attendance noticed him all at once.
The game officially began at 7:04 p.m., and had to be called off due to storms at 1:07 a.m. after almost six hours of play. It seemed at first like it might be an early night for fans, but the Shorebirds scored in the bottom of the ninth to set up the ensuing marathon of futility.
No matter what happens from this point it will be the all-time record for the longest game in Shorebirds history. There’s also a slim chance it could challenge the all-time record for longest game, which was between the Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester Red Wings in 1981. That game took 33 innings and featured Cal Ripkin Jr. in the Red Wings lineup.
Fans who purchased a ticket to the game on Thursday will have a chance to re-enter starting at 5 p.m. on Friday. The game is set to continue at 6 p.m. and we’ll see how long this one lasts.
That being said, Cube was not entirely great — he skipped a beat between the first and second line, which threw everyone off, including the organist — but he was enthusiastic throughout Cheap Vintage Jerseys the performance. And really, isn’t that what counts here?
I do want to give a quick shout-out to this fan here who listened to Cube sing, and Cheap Wbc Jerseys could only respond with a head shake that says, “Well, alright, you messed up the tempo here, but it’s too late to turn back, so we might as well finish this.”
