Blue light over NYC has Mets, Giants players buzzing

There was some odd activity going on in Queens on Thursday night. 

No, the Mets did not sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado, but an electrical fire at a Con Edison substation in Astoria resulted in an “electrical arc”, which caused a massive blue light to beam over the city at about 9 p.m. 

The incident caused a bit of a phenomenom, with some Mets and Giants players buzzing about what it could possibly be.

Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo posted a picture of the blue sky on his Instagram story, prompting a response from Noah Syndergaard, who assured it was not caused by the hammer of Thor but did offer some help.

“Not me Broseff,” Syndergaard tweeted with a screenshot of Nimmo’s Instagram story. “Need me to come save you Nimms?”

It’s also only natural that a “big blue” light would elicit a reaction from some Giants players, too, and rookie Saquon Barkley was certainly struck by what he was seeing. 

“What just happened to the sky in New York … or am I tripping!??” Barkley tweeted. 

Barkley’s teammate, inside linebacker Tae Davis, also thought he was “tripping” in a response to Barkley’s tweet. 

Meanwhile, former Giants running back Orleans Darkwa probably should have gotten in touch with Syndergaard, wondering if Thor’s nemesis Thanos was back in New York. 

Of course, the blue light naturally led to some jokes about the Giants, too. Including one from ESPN reporter Dianna Russini, who tweeted the blue light signaled the Giants just inked Eli Manning to a contract extension.
