The New York Mets finally get their first no-hitter, after fifty years.

Until the 1994 baseball strike I was a big baseball fan and an even bigger Met fan. Kudos to Johan Santana for beating out Hall of Famers Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan as the first Met to do it.

    Finally something Robert and I have in common.
    Once upon a time you had to leave the Mets to throw a no hitter: Seaver, Cone, Gooden, Humber, and Ryan (7 times for him, no less).
    As Howie Rose says, put it in the books.
    A great day for all of us “long suffering…”
