I recently went on a popcorn odyssey, four days and nights of eating popcorn in 4 different places in 3 different states, and I documented the entire thing to share with you guys. Day 1: Popcorn from Target for Game 1 of the NLDS.

Daniel Murphy may not be a Met next year, but tonight he cemented his legacy as a Met. Not only did Murphy win the game with a game-winning home run (his third of the series) he made one of the biggest surprise heady plays in baseball history when he went from first to third on Duda's walk and scored on d'Arnaud's sacrifice fly.

A few years ago we bought a pumpkin painted with the Mets logo. When we went back to that store this year they didn't have any. So I tried to do it myself. Here's what I did: I printed out a Mets logo on a piece of paper and then covered the entire back of it with blue painter's tape.
I just never had a good feeling about Game 4. I was still tired from Game 3. My energy wasn't the same, the crowd's energy wasn't the same and certainly the offensive production wasn't the same. Our seats weren't as good either, though we still had a nice view from left field.

"Back in My Arms" - Jaheim Whenever I make a song like this the SOTW, I feel I need to post a disclaimer that Mrs. Poop and I are not having problems. It's the downside of a happy, healthy relationship that I never get to sit in my room and listening to this song on repeat while crying.

Thanks to the connections of Master Bates, I was able to attend Game 3 of the NLDS at Citifield. After the controversial Utley slide, emotions were running high, especially when Ruben Tejada limped onto the field in pregame introductions.

Everything seemed to be going the Mets way, up 1-0 in games, 2-0 in Game 2 with Syndergaard dealing, but if you've been a Mets fan for more than five minutes you know stuff like this happens to us. For the quick review, Syndergaard allows two base runners in the 7th (I thought Terry should have yanked him), Colon gets Kendrick to hit one back up the middle, Murphy flips to Tejada who gets destroyed by Utley as the tying run scores. As Tejada is being carted off, the umpires review the play and say Tejada never touched the base. They put Utley back, making it 1st and 2nd with one out, and Addison Reed came in and allowed 3 runs to score.
A promising start to the week until the Cardinals went down in flames. As always with my seasons I do much better on regular picks (11-5) as opposed to best bets. Let's see what Week 5 holds. BALTIMORE -7 cleveland Remember when the Ravens were a Super Bowl contender? They could easily be 0-4 right now. But I still think they are a good team. And should be able to beat a bad one at home. KANSAS CITY -8 1/2 chicago I correctly picked the Bears last week and Jay Cutler came back like a hero and led them to their first game. Well, the Bears still stink. And even though there's a lot of points to lay here, I like the Chefs, great googley-moogley, the Chiefs. seattle +3 CINCINNATI All of the sudden the Bengals are world-beaters? Well, they still have Andy Dalton and the Seahawks still have a good defense. arizona -3 DETROIT The Cardinals are still good. The Lions still suck. BEST BET new england -8 DALLAS I've just got a feeling the Patriots are going to kill the Cowboys. Last week: 3-2 (2 points) Season: 13-7 (13 points) Best Bets: 0-1 (2-2) Home Favorites: 1-2 (5-2) Home Underdogs: 1-0 (1-1) Road Favorites: 0-0 (5-4) Road Underdogs: 1-0 (2-0)
