The New York Mets might have been expected to be a joke this season, but that hasn't been the case as they entered play Sunday night with a 30-23 record. Funny things are still happening with the Metropolitans, however.
Comedian Bill Maher is now reportedly a part-owner of the franchise. Maher's share in the team is not known, but the fact that he is a part owner now is no joke.
"I've always been a a baseball fan but especially a fan of the New York Mets," Maher said before Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. "I've lived in Los Angeles almost 30 years but I've never stopped rooting for the Mets. That's one thing New Yorkers don't do, switch allegiances. And I've never been a fan of the DH."
The Mets are doing better than anticipated this season, and got the first no-hitter in franchise history on Friday courtest of Johan Santana.
"I'm super excited," Maher said. "They were picked to be last, and now look at them."
