A black mark

6:42 p.m. …

We knew it couldn’t last.

Alas, tonight Citi Field is sullied by the 2009 debut of the Mets’ black jerseys. Gag.

It’s a shame they couldn’t bring out the blue hats before the black.

3 a.m. update …

And it figures. The Mets wear the black. Gary Sheffield pinch-hits, hitless thus far as a Met. They’re down one run, seventh inning. Sitting on 499 home runs …

BAM. Long drive down the left-field line, and Gary Sheffield is the 25th member of the 500 home run club.

Fade to black.
