The Mets had planned their hazing ritual for Sunday night after their game with the Braves. Little did they know when they made their plan that it would turn out to be another late inning heartache of a loss.
But contrary to last season when the Mets canceled their hazing amid “The Collapse”, the Mets continued on with their plans.
The rookies all had to wear the crazy swimsuits and bathing caps leaving Shea on the way to the airport before heading to Washington.
It’s a good sign that the 2008 Mets aren’t paralyzed by a tough loss. The season, and hazing rituals, must go on as they have for years and years in baseball.
