Good Saturday morning guys. Unlike Shannon I am still in NY and I was able to watch the game last night. I enjoyed the whole game, it was entertaining to me. Well, until KROD came into the game in the ninth. Is it a prerequisite that our closers have to give us little scares when they come into the game? Seems that way since Franco got here in the 90’s at least. Anyway here are some of my thoughts.
I went out to dinner at a local bar/restaurant near my house in Queens last night. Usually there is a 3-1 ratio of Yankees to Mets gear being worn there.Â Not last night. I don’t know if the Mets have gotten some bandwagon hangers on or Mets fans are starting to believe in this team. The bar was loud and you could hear the fans going nuts when the Mets scored or made a good play. I have not heard the bar that loud for the Mets in a long time.
The other thing I have been noticing while I am out and about is there seems to be a lot of Mets hats being worn in the wild.Â I have been seeing mostly the traditional blue and orange, followed by the hybrid, and then quite a few of those MR MET hats that have been posted hear before.
It us great to see the fans getting behind the team again and I think it has a lot to do with the Mets playing well. But I also imagine that it has to do with the Mets organization becoming more fan friendly this year then last. Tours, Museums, and even acknowledging the bloggers to me makes it seems like they are listening to what the fans want.
What do you guys think? Do you feel like fans are back to believing in the Mets? Or, do you think this is going to be just another let down?
