You may be right. They stormed the field after the Mets clinched the NL East against the Cubs. Mets fans ripped up chunks of turf, and several of them threw them at the announcers' booth. I think that little display may have put an end to on-field celebrations once and for all.
"Message to all WSIers who think that Thomas will be a first-or-second ballot Hall of Famer-with guys like Telander holding the "Keys to the Kingdom" and openly campaigning against the DH-I will be kind and say You Are Dreaming. Thomas and his supporters are going to have to shout his case from the rooftops before the BBWAA finally gets the message. " -Some Dope on WSI, 2/13/2010. Whoops, that was me.
Then again, I think I have a promising career as a TV psychic. John Edward, watch out!
