Let's Go Mets

It’s a Sunday in late September and the Mets are tied with the Phillies with one game left. I wish I was going to be at Shea but I’ll watch on TV. It’s been a really tough couple weeks watching the Mets collapse and it’s a bit harder for me to watch them lately.

But one thing about this pennant race that’s been different is the way I’ve been able to share the misery via social media. Here are some (not all) of the Mets fans who I’ve been blogging and twittering about the Mets with this year.


I’ll be on Twitter while I watch the game today. So let’s share the joy or misery (Twitter Groups would be killer for this).

As Dave Winer told Jeff Pulver:

a true Mets fan savors every moment, win or lose. the klutzier they
are, the more mets-like they are. those are our boys. if you want to be
a mets fan you’re going to do a lot of crying, it’s an emotional game,
don’t try to over-analyze it. and it ain’t over till it’s over.

    Good luck, I’m more concerned about the Jets, naturally……..

    85 years of pitcher on the mound for the Mets and Phils today (Glavine = 41 + Moyer = 44). I’ll take Glavine any day of the week. Let’s go Mets!!!

    This is completely unrelated, and made more unrelated because I should be referring to American football. However South Africa played the USA in the rugby world cup last night. There were a few South African-born players in the USA side. For those who are interested you can read more here. http://www.rugbyworldcup.co

    Hey, never blogged about my sports life – die hard mets fan. I was at the game yesterday, and if it weren’t for a very strong willed mother in law (we were there for the weekend) my 2 month old son would have been there as well.The anger, frustration and grief at the game was tangible. I was at Shea when they lost to Atlanta in 99, beat Atlanta in 2000 and when they beat the Yankees (the only game where they beat them) at the 2000 World Series. Shea Stadium is a living and breathing organism. When the Mets win there is an energy, a thrill, an excitement that goes beyond words.Even way back in the dark days of the summer of 94, I never felt the emptiness in the air that was pervasive leaving yesterday’s game.
