I’m going to guess since this middle-aged Mets fan didn’t recall this, this may be news to many of you.
When I mentioned the Phillies fans use of “Ya Gotta Believe” yesterday, reader Jon mentioned that in 1980 Tug took the phrase with him and told NY to “stick it.”
I’ve always known Tug to be a a beloved Met alumnus, and of course we remember 1973.
However, if you read here – here is the story in print.
Not sure how I feel about Tug now.
