It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Announcing New Corporate Partnership

We here at IMFM International have searched long and hard for the kind of multinational corporate backing that makes sense for our product and for Mets fans in general. That's why we're proud to unveil our new sponsor, Sheppie's Health Insurance of Camino, CA!! "Not Just for Boxcar Boys No more!"

Batshit Barry says: "If'n ya ain't got the health insurance yet, ya can git it wit us!"

(For a sneak peak of exciting future contests to chose the new It's Mets For Me-Sheppie's spokesperson click here.)

While we expect to retain full, or close to full, editorial control over the content of the IMFM family of blogs, vacation package booking services and book-of-the-month clubs, we do realize that certain interested parties (read: party members) among our readers will be attempted to accuse us of all sorts of malfeasance and demand justification of this forward-thinking liason. Well set your mind at ease, Fidel.

If you don't like our new arrangement, well you can go to hell or whereever godless pinkos such as yourself go.

Dig. When you punch that wall or put your foot through your flatscreen after the Mets bullpen blows another winnable series the @?%$!* Florida Marlins, don't you want to be familar with a reputable insurance provider that (could) give you (potentially) the same level of care (kind of) that the Mets give their own?

!&%$#@ Cody Ross!

Think of your Met heroes:
Moises Alou
Orlando Hernandez
Pedro Martinez
Luis Castillo
Matt Wise

Think of the lives of ease and relaxation they lead. They still get paid. Think they don't have health insurance?

Moises Alou relaxes, knowing that he's covered.

Know this: life is fragile. Health is fleeting. And we all don't have the luxury of four guaranteed years at $25 million (with a $1 million signing bonus). You could get injured during a warm up jog. You could break your foot without stepping foot on a field. Perhaps you just have a creeky hip that only allows activities such as taking pen to contract. When you limp off the field of life, don't you want the comfort of knowing that Sheppie's got your back?

Sheppie's crack staff of operators stand by to take your call.

Now we realize that a minority of you might initially resist our new corporately-generated blog postings. But we pledge here and now that we will continue to repost and cut and paste the web offerings of the beat writers and tabloid columns with all the journalistic integrity and poise you have come to expect from a high quality blog. Sheppie will have to give most posts the once over, but he only comes into the office on Wednesdays. And we won't lose that edge. Also, we have families to put food on too, you know? We hope that those of you who wholeheartedly support any and all capitalist endeavors and/or are corporate zombies will fill the comments section with your brainless support.

Sheppie's got Moises back, can he have yours?
Thanks in advance.

    Send your sweepstakes entry in for a chance to win a seat on the Barney's Beanery dream couch to watch the Mets with the Sheppie sherpa.

    Sheppies would have been there for you when you hurt your foot. They don't just do bunions.
