(Omar, Willie, Carlos and Jeff all say “Fuckin’-A, USA!”

From the AP :

Now that he’s been traded to the New York Mets, Carlos Delgado says he is willing to stand on the field during the playing of “God Bless America.”

After putting on a Mets jersey at a Shea Stadium news conference Monday, Delgado said he spoke about his anti-war protest with New York chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon.

“I gave him my views on that subject and I also said I would not put myself in front of the team,” Delgado said. “The Mets have a policy that everybody should stand for ‘God Bless America’ and I will be there. I will not cause any distractions to the ballclub.”

In a completely unrelated story, free agent C Mike Piazza has told prospective employers that he’ll stand for the duration of Queensryche’s “Operation : Mindcrime”

    Dude- I would stand for Operation Mindcrime too. Brings back great memories of cruising around in my ’72 Chevelle and jamming what was at the time the best concept album since 2112.

    Wet and raving
    The needle keeps calling me back
    To bloody my hands forever

    Ahh…those were the days
