Well, the Mets may not win the pennant race this year, but I just did.
My pennant, or banner–pictured above–was selected by the New York Times as one of the top images created for an online “Banner Day”.
I was surprised and thrilled to open today’s Times and see my image reproduced on page 13 of Section B. The banner can be seen online as well: http://bats.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/16/banner-day-2009/.
If the Mets’ performance and injuries haven’t given me much to smile about recently, the act of creating my facetious banner and having it selected as one of the top five images submitted DID give me something to smile about!
I’d still take the return of Reyes, Beltran, Delgado and the rest over my name and picture in print…
