"MEET THE BENCH"
November 12, 2010

Remember the fight song of the New York Mets, Meet the Mets, which was concocted in 1962 to help usher in the return of baseball to New York City (four years after the Brooklyn Dodgers bolted for San Francisco)?

Well , with no disrespect to original song authors Ruth Roberts and Bill Katz, try to hum that tune along with me as we twist those lyrics around to match a new song to help usher in the Hornets almost totally new group of reserves. New Orleans has nine new players, seven of whom are non-starters. To help introduce you to the new crew coming off the pine for the Hornets follow along as we totally destroy the song that helped make the Mets so popular back in the 60s. Well call it, Meet the Bench.

"MEET THE METS"

Meet the Mets, meet the Mets,
Step right up and greet the Mets.
Bring your kiddies, bring your wife,
Guaranteed to have the time of your life.
Because the Mets are really sockin' the ball,
Knockin' those home runs over the wall.
East side, West side, everybody's coming down,
To meet the M-E-T-S Mets, of New York town.

Oh, the butcher and the baker and the people on the streets,
Where did they go? To MEET THE METS!
Oh, they're hollerin' and cheerin' and they're jumpin' in their seats,
Where did they go? To MEET THE METS!
All the fans are true to the orange and blue,
So hurry up and come on down -
'cause we've got ourselves a ball club,
The Mets of New York town!

Give 'em a yell! Give 'em a hand!
And let 'em know you're rootin' in the stands!
Come on and...

Meet the Mets, meet the Mets,
Step right up and greet the Mets.
Bring your kiddies, bring your wife,
Guaranteed to have the time of your life.
Because the Mets are really sockin' the ball,
Knockin' those home runs over the wall.
East side, West side, everybody's coming down,
To meet the M-E-T-S Mets,
Of New York town,
Of New York town!

"MEET THE BENCH"

Meet the Bench, meet the Bench,
Step right up and greet the Bench.
Bring your kids, bring your wife,
Guaranteed to have the time of your life.
Because the Bench is really shooting the ball,
Playing Montys defense as solid as a wall.
Southshore, Northshore, everybodys giddy,
To meet the Bees Bench, of the Crescent City.

Oh, that BuzzFest starts us on the streets,
Getting ready at the Hive To MEET THE BENCH!
Oh, theyre hollerin and cheerin in their seats.
Getting ready at the Hive To MEET THE BENCH!
All the fans are true to the Creole Blue,
Preparing to see J-Smiths pick n pop go thru!
Willie Green is the hybrid guard and leader
He can dribble drive, shoot, or be the feeder.

J-Bay went from Blazer to Bee,
A sharp move to preserve minutes for CP!
Come on and

Meet the Bench, meet the Bench,
Step right up and greet the Bench.
Pops and Q-Pon have the nicknames,
Mbengas the blocker Alexander the hopper.
Cause these are the new seven helping the 5
Welcome them to Nola and the Hive!
Southshore, Northshore everybodys giddy,
To meet the Bees Bench of the Crescent City
Of the Big Easy,
Of the Big Easy!
