Happy Birthday Grandpa…The Mets won today

July 22, 2007 at 9:45 pm (SPORTS)

On July 22nd, 2007, my Grandfather would  have turned 102. He died in 2002, just shy of turning 97. He was an Orthodox Rabbi, a husband of 67  years, a father to two children, a grandfather of five, and a New York Mets fan.

I cannot recall the Mets ever losing on his birthday. Sometimes the games would run 14 to 16 innings, and end after midnight, so it did not count as a birthday loss.

    All I ever got from my grandfather was a plant that blooms every 5 years.

    You’re blessed.

    “…I would always test his mind by asking him ‘the baseball question’.”

    I think this epitomizes who and how you are, Eric. Don’t ask how I know, I just do.
