The Mets have had many terrible slogans over the years, weak attempts to draw fans to the ballpark to watch a crappy team. In 1998 the motto was the admittedly catchy “Show Up at Shea.” In 2003 it was “Experience It” (“it” apparently referred to a 66-win team). On the heels of a rare playoff appearance, the 2007 slogan was “Your Season Has Come,” a declaration that Mets management has been selling to fans ever since without delivering on the promise. But next year, Matt Harvey is back. The pitching staff is loaded. The good news: Your Season Has Come! The bad news: It looks a lot like the past few seasons.

Fifteen minutes. That’s the minimum time it takes to complete a SCAT3, the test given to athletes who may be concussed.
Three minutes and fifteen seconds. That’s the time it took for Michigan quarterback Shane Morris to re-enter the game after sustaining what appeared to be a concussion.
Six hours and counting. That’s the time it’s taken, so far, for the Michigan medical staff to release the statement we were told to expect earlier today.
