Juan Uribe doesn’t seem to like football very much

The Mets were in high spirits after coming back to win on Sunday against the Braves, completing a four-game sweep in Atlanta, running their winning streak to seven games, and securing their first winning season since 2008. But something rustled infielder Juan Uribe’s jimmies.

Uribe joined his teammates on the plane as the team will head back home to host the Marlins on Monday. Third baseman David Wright put a football game on, but that wasn’t a decision that had Uribe’s support. Via Newsday’s Marc Carig:

“More fooball! Oh sh*t! F*cking bullsh*t... unf*ckingbelievable... Baseball, that’s what I want to watch.” - Juan Uribe

“I don’t wanna watch f*cking fooball on the plane,” Uribe yelled to Wright. “You’re the CAPTAIN.” Everyone ❤️ Juan Uribe.

Juan Uribe: “Who you wanna talk to?” Me: “You, about fooball.” Uribe: “F***! Fooball, fooball, fooball.” I don’t think he’s into football.

Uribe went 1-for-5, filling in at third base for Wright on Sunday. He’s hitting .219 with five home runs and 18 RBI in 129 plate appearances since joining the Mets.
