I have been a mets fan for as long as i can remember. I was born in 1985. My first memory was my dad throwing me in the air like a foot ball and i had no idea what the hell was going on. Once i got a little older, he told me it was because the Mets had finally won the World Series(1986). Since that day i have never looked back. I remember running the bases at SHEA after the game(yes they let you do that back in the day lol) and just watching those Sunday day games on channel 11 vs the Braves. Ive always had a saying “To be a Met fan, you have to KNOW baseball”. I created this saying mostly for the bandwagon Yankee fans that i found myself fighting with and defending my mets against but i find that mets fans generally know more about the game and their team than anybody else. Today i live in FL and while i still find myself outnumbered(marlin country), fighting and defending my mets.. just a day in the life of a mets fan, the constant underdog.
I was always under the impression that Florida, in particular, Miami, was Mets/Yanks country.
i live in miami, it’s definitely NOT mets territory. they hate us (the fans, yes, us) with a passion down here. i think it’s some sort of inferiority complex.
the radio is so anti-met, which is bush league because the radio in nyc is not anti-(insert any opposing team here).
marlins fans are the worst kind, too. they don’t know sh*t but they like to talk.
