As baseball season approaches, as a New York Mets fan, I am reminded of one simple fact.
I am jealous of people whose teams actually produce winning records. You know, the teams who have fans who hold their heads high and make fun of all the losers (except for the Orioles. It’s like no matter how much they continue to lose, their fans get more and more hardcore). The fans who wear their team’s paraphernalia without fear of ridicule. The fans who look forward to October because it’s exciting, not depressing. The fans who don’t want their teams to suck so badly that they set new records for losses in a single season (seriously. I want the Mets to do that. If they’re going to be bad, let’s at least be the best at being the worst). The fans who know that the players’ elections to the All-Star team is due to good play, not the mandatory one person representative.
With that said, let’s go Mets! And please, don’t suck too badly this year. I live near Philly and it’s really getting embarrassing.
