Wednesday, May 20, 2009


A hapless Mets fan tried to make a diving catch when her gold tooth fell into a Citi Field toilet—and got her arm stuck in the commode.

The unidentified woman’s bizarre Flushing adventure happened during last Wednesday’s game against the Atlanta Braves, sources said yesterday.

It’s unclear how long she was trapped screaming in the john, but stadium security guards and emergency medical personnel eventually showed up.

But they could not pry her loose on their own.

They called for back-up—dialing up a worker from Cardoza Plumbing, the company that installed all 646 ultra-low-flow toilets at Citi Field.

He rushed to the scene from his company’s Jamaica headquarters 7.2 miles away, the sources said.

The anxious victim, meanwhile, could only wait as the toilet continued to flush over her arm.

At one point, she became more entertaining than the game—which the Mets lost 8-7—as fans gathered outside the bathroom near Section 338 to see the off-field action.

I can’t believe it isn’t a Onion Article!

Just shows David Wright's lack of leadership.

I totally should have seen that coming.

Not only does Beltran not make plays to win games, he also can't save teeth either. Useless.

They should sign that woman up. It's obvious that she has that edge the team has been lacking.

Jose Reyes and David Wright teamed up to lay an egg in this clutch situation.

If only the Mets had Nomar...

Toilets are porcelain. Did no one have a hammer? Good God, man, rough up the bowl and go home!

A bazillion pun points for the writer of the article.

Knowing NYC, you'd probably be arrested for Vandalism.
