It’s true that Mr. Met kind of looks like a walking bobblehead doll. All mascots do to some extent but he, along with the Braves’ Homer, bear the closest resemblance to our favorite desk and dashboard ornament.
This fact does not, apparently, give you the right to treat Mr. Met as such.
A few days ago, not only did 32-year old Met fan and all-round-swell-guy Christian Hansen allegedly* push small children out of his way to greet the large-headed wonder (by the way, who’d win in a big-head fight: Mr. Met or Giada De Laurentiis?), but Hansen supposedly roughhoused the New York mascot. And when approached by stadium security, Hansen allegedly swung his fist and missed like he was James Shields, but managed to spit in the guy’s face instead.
Who would do such a thing? Doesn’t this man know that Mr. Met has a family to take care of?
*And by “allegedly”, I mean, he probably did it.
