So I found myself behind this at a red light today...
The photo kinda sucks because we were facing the sun and my windshield isn't the cleanest at the moment, but if you concentrate really hard, you can make out that that license plate reads "METGIRL." You'll just have to take my word for it that it is, in fact, a Jackson County, Mississippi, tag.
Is Metgirl a transplant from Jackson (the city) during the AA minor league days? Is that Biloxi resident Barry Lyons' daughter or the lady friend of Binghamton pitcher Robert Carson, who's from Hattiesburg? Dunno. Heck, it may not even be a reference to the baseball team for all I know. Regardless, if you found your way here and know the story behind this, drop me a line.
