Mets Need A Hug, Hire Nick Cannon

Well, if it wasn’t pathetic enough to be a Mets fan, it is now. Fighting with the Nationals for third place in the NL East en route to a fifth straight non-playoff season doesn’t really drive ticket sales. The Amazin’s have resorted to gimmicky theme nights to help attendance before, mainly involving different ethnicities, fireworks, and douchebags who wear wife beaters and pump their fists while they dance. What they’re planning for Friday, however, may be an all-time low.

Nick Cannon, the actor, radio host, and Mariah Carey’s husband, will attempt to break a Guinness World Record by hugging 1,800 people in an hour. That’s one every two seconds. Not an easy task, although maybe this is a public service because there’s nobody I know that needs a hug more than a Mets fan. The Mets still haven’t explained the reasoning behind this seemingly random promotion. I think they’re just trying to embarrass as many of their fans as they can.

Hey, the Yanks have Yogi Berra and the Mets have Nick Cannon. Still, not sure a Mets game is the best place to accomplish this record. Do 1,800 people still go to Mets games? Maybe Fred Wilpon can get all 1,800 hugs. And what type of bogus world record is hugging the most people in an hour? Lemme know when Nick Cannon breaks the record for most shirts worn.
