“Sharknado 2: The Second One” premiered Wednesday night on the SyFy channel, and it dominated the Twittersphere.
One scene that produced a gold mine of funny tweets was when the shark-filled tornado hit Citi Field during a New York Mets game.
The Mets, who have missed the playoffs for six straight seasons, are no strangers to being made fun of by sports fans.
Here are some of the funniest tweets involving the Mets and the “Sharknado” sequel.
Implausibility levels in Sharknado 2: Flying Sharks 8/10, Ian Ziering landing a plane 6/10, Mets scoring runs 10/10. #Sharknado2TheSecondOne—

Spoiler alert: The Sharks look deadly early on but they probably blow the lead or something. #Sharknado2TheSecondOne—

Of course, when the Sharknado hits Citi Field, it becomes complacent with its big contract and eventually will be a trade deadline deal.—
