We're only two games into the 2011 season and the Mets appear to be an easy punching bag for comedians both professional and amateur.
After Friday's loss in the opener in Florida, a SNY technician inserted an audio clip from the show Family Guy over a shot of the team walking off the field, angering SNY executives.
"It was a very poor decision by an employee," a network spokesman told the New York Post. "The matter is being dealt with internally."
Here's the clip from Family Guy where Stewie Griffin notes Halloween is "a bigger letdown than being a Mets fan."
On Thursday, comedian Chris Rock was a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman and he voiced his compaints about being a Mets fan, taking shots at the ownership situation.
Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz dismissed the SNY incident.
"You can't react to criticism," Horwitz told the Post. "We're New York; you have a thick skin."
