Sorry to bother all the non-New Yorkers out there with this dumb story, but it was a slow weekend. Anyway, Mets closer Frank Francisco
called the Yankees "chickens" before the Subway Series started on Friday. I know I shouldn't be surprised the New York media would go crazy with that quote, but for three straight days, it's been chicken this and chicken that, and cluck this and cluck that
, blah, blah, blah. For some reason, the Mets fed into the frenzy by bringing a chicken in the clubhouse
Saturday and naming it "Little Jerry Seinfeld." The team then held a press conference on Sunday to announce the chicken was being donated to some farm. And during Sunday night's game, Jerry Seinfeld
himself was tweeting about the stupid chicken
. In the end, however, while the Mets were focusing on poultry, the Yankees took two out of three games at Citi Field (and even scored five earned runs off the red-hot R.A. Dickey
). Also, Francisco ended up on the disabled list on Saturday. But at least the Mets had fun with a chicken.
