Watched a Mets Preseason Games Instead of Batman vs Superman

George Reeves is My Superman

There was a lot of hype about the new movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Certainly the Man of Steel has appeared many times in Bruce's Journal as I have been a fan since the 1950s.  I was still a fan of the Caped Crusader, but somewhat lesser than Superman.

The review in AM/NY, a free newspaper that is distributed in the NYC subway system was very negative giving it one star out of a possible four.  The reviewer said "There’s about five minutes of actual story buried in a two-and-a-half hour m√©lange of booming clashes marked by melodramatic sound design, inexplicable narrative digressions to fill in the many empty spots."  In any event the late George Reeves seen above is my Superman.

We walked over to the local multiplex to try to get into the 1:20 show, but were shut out.  I thought that since it was Easter Sunday and with the bad reviews, we could get in.  It is no big deal as we can try to get in next week.  It is common that everyone has to go the first week, and then especially after bad reviews, the demand goes down.

Instead we went home and turned on the Mets vs Nationals preseason game.  Since it is just a week away from opening day in Kansas City I thought I should see what the 2016 team looked like.  Steven Matz pitched well for 5 2/3 innings and there were home runs by David Wright and Michael Conforto.  An error by reliever Jerry Blevins lead to some runs by the Nationals.  The game ended as a 4-4 tie at the end of 9 innings.  This is the third Met preseason game in a row that ended in a tie.  I guess this is normal for spring training.
