32-year-old New York State Senator Daniel Squadron – whose 25th district includes neighborhoods such as Brooklyn, Tribeca, Battery Park City and the Lower East Side – gave some rambling speech recently on the floor of the state chamber. Normally, this wouldn’t be of interest to you… or anyone. But Squadron dropped this peculiar line:
"[The Mets] also have just about the best mascot anyone can ever ask for. And if the Phillie Phanatic wants to come and quarrel with me about that, I believe that this house is going to allow mixed martial arts, and I’m happy to take on that fight."
