Happy Opening Day!!

March 31, 2008

A mere 25 minutes before the Mets’ opening game against the Marlins, let’s take a moment to give thanks for another season of the Mets, and another season of Mets Update for Girls.

Elsewhere in the world of baseball-loving by ladies, for ladies, Jezebel takes this opportunity to present three important reasons why Smart Women Love Baseball.

1. Baseball Players are Good Boys.

2. The Devil’s in the Details.

3. Phallic Symbols are no Fallacy, or Sex Sells.

You know, more or less.

But come on. These are the pitchers going head-to-head.


Cutie-Patootie newly minted Met┬áJohan Santana…


And this guy. Mark Hendrickson.

Since they haven’t actually played yet, all we can go on are eyes, skin tone, and facial hair grooming. And I think it’s clear that Santana sends all those CLEAN OVER THE PLATE.
