I didn't like the '50s, you know. I appreciate Elvis, but I'm not a big fan. I'm not a rockabilly fan. And the '60s and early '70s were, to me, the greatest times to live.

Hockey The MLB’s worst ranked team, the New York Mets, was on a losing streak. They had no hope of becoming the best team in the National League. But one day, their luck changed. They won their first game. After that, they started winning game, after game, after game. “It was like a Cinderella Story that never struck midnight,” commented Herbert L. Sherbert.

Although some people fear the Mets may lose to the best team in the American League, the Detroit Tigers, the Mets keep a positive attitude. We interviewed Matt Harvey, the starting pitcher for the Mets. He said, “The biggest thing we have to work on is our attitude.
