The Slutskys Meet Mr. Met at the Sly Fox Inn
The Sly Fox Inn is a restaurant/sports bar near St. John's University. Backed when I worked at SJU from 1990-92, I ate lunch there a few times. Some days back I saw an advertisement in one of the local Queens newspapers that Mr. Met will be making an appearance there tonight. We had to come over to meet our favorite mascot. The game was on TV as Mr. Met met his public. We stayed until the 6th inning as the Mets were leading 6-0. We turned on the game when we got home and in spite of a shaky outing by Frank Francisco, the Mets held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-4.
