    Secret Service threatened to shoot Mr. Met

    This might be the best thing I've ever read.

    The man who once dressed as the New York Mets mascot, Mr. Met, wrote in his new memoir that a Secret Service agent once warned him not to approach President Clinton at the ballpark or the agent will "go for the kill shot."

    The New York Post reported that A.J. Mass worked as the team's mascot from 1994 to 1997. He recalls in his memoir, "Yes, Itís Hot in Here: Adventures in the Weird, Woolly World of Sports Mascots," Jackie Robinson's 50th anniversary at Shea Stadium, which was attended by Clinton in 1997.

    He writes that the agent told him that they have snipers around the stadium. Mass recalls the agent saying, "Like I said, do whatever it is you normally do. Nobody will bother you. But approach the president, and we go for the kill shot. Are we clear?" The agent repeated the line twice, Mass writes.

    That agent takes his job too seriously, but again when you are a special agent you can never be too serious. See what happened to JFK, Lincoln or Reagan.

    It is a tough life to be a mascot.

    A former mascot has memoirs? Okay?

    Yeah, I don't know what is funnier the threat or the fact that a former mascot has memoirs?

    But seriously that head could be hiding anything.

    Here is an example

    ^^

    As big of a Met fan as I am, I always detested Mr. Met. I can understand some of his hatred.

    I didn't know there was a Mr.Met, his memoirs could be interesting.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    Saw his story on Way Too Early this morning, too funny. Guess his head wouldn't fit through the metal detector...

    Pfff thx for pointing that out but you know what I meant, Lincoln's death pushed the oval office to be really careful with the President's security. They are not there to joke.
