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!!

 

 

Ryne Sandberg and Shake Shack Are Cool Again

Over Mother’s Day Weekend Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg claimed he had a case of food poisoning after eating an undercooked burger from Shake Shack at Citi Field (home of the Mets).

NY Mets first-baseman Lucas Duda also claimed he came down with food poisoning from eating Shake Shack.  it was initially reported Duda ate from the Shake Shack at Citi Field but it was later reported he actually ate from a different Shake Shack.

For Mets fans Shake Shack is just about the best thing going for the Mets right now outside of pre/post game drinks at McFaddens with my favorite bartenders.  Mets fans can handle the disappoint of the Mets but say it ain’t so about Shake Shack!!!

The NY Mets and Shake Shack quickly denied it was their burgers that caused Sandberg’s illness.

“We’ve served thousands of guests at our Citi Field Shack over the past week, and this is the first we’ve heard of any issue whatsoever,”

“We take every guest concern of any sort seriously, and as such reached out to Ryne Sandberg to get more information since we have not heard from him. We stand by our food quality 100 percent.” – Shake Shack spokesman Greg Waters

As of this morning it looks Sandberg and Shake Shack were able to talk it out as Shake Shack’s Twitter account sent out the following pic

Good job by Shake Shack to work this out with Sandberg, not sure what Mets fans would have done if they could not rely on Shake Shack.

As always….
