To steer the media frenzy away from their Domino's Pizza patches, the Mets have constructed the most ridiculous lawn ornament ever. The new Apple is 4 times bigger than the old apple and weighs over 6,000 lbs. I am pretty sure most fans thought the original apple was a little tacky, so I am not sure why making it ridiculously big was a good idea. Maybe they can use it to crush the Phillies players somehow.
My new theory is that it is actually a trojan horse filled with soldiers who will attack and kill the Phillies.
One guy over at Metsblog.com thinks Manny will pop out on opening day as a special gift to the fans.
Hat tip to Dikran for bringing this thought to my head. The old Apple was small and light. How do you raise a 6,000 lbs. Apple? Moreover, how do you conceal a 6,000 lbs. Apple?
