As Mets Plummet, Dickey Reaches Summit

As the Mets off season appears to be on crash course with obscurity, Mets starting pitcher RA Dickey has reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

In ignoring Mets threats and requests that Dickey cancel his fund-raising trip to Africa, Dickey, Mets bullpen catcher Dave Racainiello, and Rockies pitcher Kevin Slowey reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The trip was planned last off-season to raise money and awareness for
Bombay Teen Challenge, which fights against human trafficking in the red light district in Mumbai.

According to reports, Dickey had to battle fatigue and nausea in the final hours of the ascent. After reaching the top, Dickey exclaimed in a letter to a friend, "God is good!"

Congratulations to Dickey on the accomplishment of this great feat.
