Mr. Sandman

I got this email this morning from a friend of mine who is a die hard Mets fan from NYC:

NY Daily News Article

Read this article, it’s about Wagner in the Daily News.  The two funniest
parts of the story are in my opinion:
1.  A Philly mole said stadium personnel plan to greet Wagner, who uses
metal anthem "Enter Sandman" as his theme song, with the standard "Mr.
Sandman" when he enters a game, unless they get overridden by the
highest-level execs.
And 2.  As for the Phillie fans’ tough rep, Wagner recalled a
conversation with Phillies bullpen catcher Mick Billmeyer. When the
closer learned Billmeyer had been raised in Philly, he asked him: "When
you were born, was the doctor going, ‘You suck’"?
Haha.  Philly sucks.

Good stuff.
