Do You Hear What I Hear?

Mookie is one of my all-time favorite Mets.

It's more than his stolen bases, triples, doubles, and solid outfield play. It's 1986 Game 6, it's wearing shades while batting and it's being cool.

How cool is Mookie?
His real name is William Hayward - his grandmother nicknamed him Mookie.
He was married at home plate before a minor league baseball game in Jackson, MS on June 22, 1978. How cool is it to be married on a baseball field before a minor league game!

Mookie's Mets records may slowly start falling to Jose Reyes, but Mook's energy, passion, and coolness keep him at the top.

I like Jose... but what if it was Jose Reyes that hit that ground ball to Buckner. Do you think Jose would have busted out of the box like Mookie did to try and beat him to the bag?
