  • Everybody Loves Raymond?

    I was going to post this in the Arts & Literature forum, but since it's relegated to only Mets, I figure it'll be better served here.

    I'm sure several other folks have already seen this episode, but last night was the first time I'd seen it (which is odd, because I thought I'd seen every episode of Everybody Loves Raymond).

    The episode is called "Big Shots" and features several '69 Mets (many of whom were still around in '73) portraying themselves, primarily at an autograph signing. "Big Shots" was part of the third season of the show, originally aired Mar 1, 1999.

    The featured guest Mets were, alphabetically by first name, Art Shamsky, Bud Harrelson, Ed Kranepool, Jerry Grote, Ron Swoboda, Tommie Agee, and Tug McGraw. McGraw, in fact, had a relatively substantial speaking role.

    Now, anyone familiar with the show knows that Ray's brother Robert named his pet Shamsky -- which kinda gives a Mets theme throughout the series -- but I'd never seen this episode before last night. The cherry on the sundae was at the end of the episode, when Ray and Robert were driving home while singing "Meet The Mets."

    Some minor info...
    Put it in the books.

      I've seen that episode a few times...

      Great show and episode, like Pauly says...

      I wind up whistling along to "Meet the Mets" when they sing it at the end.

      And yeah, I think there is more a Mets-feel to the series than a Yankees-feel, what with their being in New York...

      I think they mention the Mets a lot more, though if I recall, they talk about going to Yankee games as kids, too.

      (Maybe it has more a Mets feel because it's a dysfunctional family-style sitcom...remind you of a certain team?)

        Its about a Lynbrook (Long Island) NY family which is about 30 minutes away from Shea..now Citi. Historicially most LI'ers were Met fans. Although right now its not even close. I live on Long Island and you would think it was 161st in the Bronx as far as baseball fandom goes.

          Bandwagon fans. Wouldn't know Brett Gardner from a garden hose.
          The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

            about this episode and I saw your thread I was thinking I heard that Cleon Jones was in this episode also.So to double check I looked it up in imdb and Cleon was in this episode as well.I'll be looking forward to seeing it when I get the chance.

              You're right, I overlooked Jones in the list. If I can, Joe, I'll grab a copy and make one for you.

                161st in the Bronx?

                I'd probably get that reference better if I lived in NY...?

                    "161st in the Bronx" = 161st Street, as in "161st Street and River Avenue," the famous intersection where Yankee Stadium is located.

                          I'm pretty sure YouTube doesn't have a problem with linking/embedding to other sites.
