I have been a mets fan for as long as i can remember. I was born in 1985. My first memory was my dad throwing me in the air like a football and i had no idea what the hell was going on. Once i got a little older, he told me it was because the Mets had finally won the World Series(1986). Since that day i have never looked back. I remember running the bases at SHEA after the game(yes they let you do that back in the day lol) and just watching those Sunday day games on channel 11 vs the Braves. Ive always had a saying “To be a Met fan, you have to KNOW baseball”. I created this saying mostly for the bandwagon Yankee fans that i found myself fighting with and defending my Mets against but i find that Mets fans generally know more about the game and their team than anybody else. Today i live in FL and while i still find myself outnumbered(marlin country), fighting and defending my mets.. just a day in the life of a mets fan, the constant underdog.
