Mr. Met mascot gives fans middle finger

Cooler heads prevailed, apparently. Either way, Mr. Met's indiscretion should become a mere footnote to 2017.

"Mr. Met was being heckled all night from those fans, and security spoke to the fans about it after Mr. Met's handler spoke up", the fan, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Post.

They seemed to be in a forgiving mood. "And if that doesn't represent every Mets fan right now I don't know what does".

Mascots behaving badly is hardly a new thing in sports. That is like something out of the movie Major League.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee".

For the record, whoever is inside the outfit never comments. The team said the person wearing the costume will no longer work for the Mets.

"Not on social media", he said. I think we can come around.

Some advice to Mr. Met moving forward. "We'll joke about it, I mean we didn't get hurt in that inning, so it was good", Flores said.

Fans outside Citi Field Thursday echoed similar sentiments.

Mr. Met, whoever you are, kudos to you.

Mr. Met may only have four fingers, but he got his point across.

Calgary Flames mascot Harvey the Hound was harassing the Oilers' bench after the Flames took a 4-0 lead in the third period.

Around baseball, reactions were equally playful. NY (23-28) counters with right-hander Zack Wheeler (3-2, 3.83). The incident was captured on video and posted to Twitter.

They are imploding. Their fans are so fed up, that they berated their own mascot so much, that he flipped them the bird.

North Korea claims American college student released from detainment for "humanitarian reasons"
How harsh is prison in North Korea? He was medically evacuated from the country and arrived in Cincinnati late Tuesday. Spokeswoman Heather Nauert (NOW'-ert) says the US hopes the other Americans will be able to return home soon.

The home plate umpire Roberto Ortiz initially called interference on the play, but crew chief Fieldin Culbreth overruled him.

The Indians scored four runs - three unearned - off Jharel Cotton (3-6) in the wild sixth, when the game was momentarily delayed when sprinklers in left field went on automatically.

During Thursday's rare weekday afternoon game, the mascot went unseen until the late innings.

After the Mets lost Wednesday game at CitiField to the Milwaukee Brewers 7-1, the team's beloved, oversized baseball-headed mascot was filmed making his way back to the locker rooms.

A Mets official told the Associated Press that more than one person wears the costume each season, and that the person behind the mask Wednesday night won't be putting it on again.

Mr Met, left, distributes t-shirts to fans during the sixth inning of a baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, June 1, 2017, in NY. Mr. Met was home.

Mr. Met is far from pleased with his team's disappointing below.500 start to this season. There is also the question of how exactly Mr. Met could raise a middle finger when the mascot's costume only has three fingers and a thumb, but the Mets are probably not particularly concerned about that.
