I’m going off topic today, because it’s my website and I’ll do what I want.
The New York Metropolitans, my beloved NY Mets, are currently 70-56. Atop of the National League East at 6.5 games ahead of the Washington Nationals, Los Mets have their largest division lead since the September which shall not be named. Because of their torrid winning ways, the Mets are garnering more and more attention as of late and it distresses me.
My Mets are underdogs. They claw and they scratch and they make something out of nothing. They engender a Stockholm-esque masochism that we Mets fans wear like a badge on our orange and blue sleeves.
My Mets are not a fashionable bandwagon juggernaut of superstars and refined culture. That’s the other New York baseball club, and let’s keep it that way.
There is much baseball left to play, but for the first time in a while, my beloved New York Mets are in control of their own destiny. I believe, but I’ve been burned many times before. Nonetheless…
Let’s Go Mets!
