Following Thursday’s amazing win for the Mets, May put out one of his typical post-game tweets after a win with emojis. One Twitter user wanted to rain on the excitement by pointing out how it seems the Mets win games when May doesn’t pitch. May looked it up. As it turns out, the 2022 Mets are 6-2 in his appearances.
More importantly, May crossed a line of humanity with his rebuttal:
Trevor May will remain a Mets cheerleader and defender while on the IL
Stepping on a LEGO is no joke. It was one of the more painful injuries in the Home Alone film series. It’s something every parent fears the most. An estimated 242,000 people visit the emergency room every year because they were injured by a toy. If LEGOs are considered a toy and not a weapon of mass destruction, I would estimate they account for 241,999 of those trips to the ER.
As far as working the social media game goes for current Mets players, few are as good as May. The other Trevor, the one from the Family Williams, is great at it, too.
May, however, is at his best when he is offering candidate responses or getting snippy with trolls. I’d imagine he gets a lot of it with over 151,000 followers on Twitter. That’s a lot of people to send your tweets out to on a daily basis. Statistically, every single one of them will end up in the hospital because they were injured by a toy.
If May gets his wish, we know one user who will be there with several LEGOs lodged within his feet.
It should be noted, May did take the higher road in this exchange. Wishing for someone to step on a couple of LEGOs isn’t nearly as harsh as requesting their foot lands on a single one. That’s the kind of season-ending injury pain no one deserves.
