5 Tips for “New” NY Mets Fans…

As of today the New York Mets are in 1st place, 8-games above .500, with 54-games left in the season.

That’s right, you read that correctly!

The Mets and their loyal fan base (which includes me) have had an eventful 14-days since they made their first move before the trade deadline (July 31st at 4pm).

  • Wilmer Flores shed tears when he thought he was part of deal that would bring Carlos Gomez back to NYC
  • The Carlos Gomez deal falls thru and Flores earns the sympathy of Mets fans and many in baseball
  • The Mets trade for Yoenis Cespedes, the big bat they so desperately needed right before the trade deadline expired
  • Shaking off the tears from 2-days prior Flores hits a walk-off home run against the Washington Nationals to start a series sweep that would vault the Mets into 1st place

For loyal Mets fans who have not seen a winning season since 2008, we welcome the joys of a winning season and a pennant race. And we also welcome the band wagon fans, but here are a couple of tips for all you “New” Mets’ fans….

5. No one cares you haven’t watched the Mets since Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Keith Hernandez and Mookie Wilson played

4. There is more to Citi Field than just Shake Shack

3. Don’t EVER, EVER, EVER bring up Luis Castillo 

2. Don’t talk about the Mets still paying Bobby Bonilla, IT”S NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL!!!!

1. It’s called Citi Field, not Shea Stadium. You simple fuck the Mets haven’t played at Shea since 2008!

 

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

 

 

A Picture That Epitomizes NYC Sports in the 80s

Taylor_Hernandez_Tyson

In the mid to late 80s the sports scene in NYC was owned by the Giants, Mets and Mike Tyson.

The Giants, Mets and Tyson not only beat-up on their opponents and won championships in their respective sports, but they also partied hard in the streets of NYC.

The stories of Lawrence Taylor partying in NYC are almost as legendary as Charlie Murphy and Rick James chillen at the China Club.

But, no one could out party the ’86 Mets held their own and of course Mike Tyson was a like a kid in the candy store

Can you imagine Facebook, Twitter, Snap Chat and Instagram back then in the 80s?????
