I grew up rooting for the Mets along with my Dad and it has always been a source of fun and bonding for us. Diane and I wanted to surprise him and bring him and my Mom to an Opening Day game, and this year we did it.
It seems that David Wright is one of those rare guys who's not afraid of committment. First, he signs a multi year contract with the Mets, seemingly making him a Met for life, and now, word is, he has made the really important committment.
For years now, our area has clearly been a "Yankees Town". As a Mets fan, no one knows that better than I do, and with the successes of the Yankees, and the failures of the Mets, it's no real surprise. This weekend though, a Yankees fan friend of mine said he thought the tables were turning.
I'm a Mets fan through and through. I'll admit that it's always more difficilt to handle a Mets loss on a day when the Yankees win. It 's just part of the rivalry. And the Yankees are always winning. It's a little annoying. But Mets fans aren't only about winning, or we wouldn't be Mets fans. This Mariano Rivera injury is different though. I want to put the rivalry aside and stand up next to all Y
Opening Day at CitiField resuted in a 1-0 Mets win over the Atlanta Braves. The Mets are in first place! I say that now because this will likely be the only time I'll be able to say it all season long. For all you Yankees and Phillies fans out there, let me have my day. You guys will have all season to be in or close to first place. I have today.
