The best part about being a blogger is that you have the opportunity to express yourself without the worry and care that you wont be able to say what you really want. The worst part is when you struggle with finding something to say.
I’m sorry for the lack of posts on here this offseason, but don’t worry, we will be back to more consistent stuff as spring training finally rolls around and we have a team on the field working towards the 2012 season.
One thing though crossed my mind when reading a post where Mike Baron of Metsblog had people on twitter ask him questions about the Mets.
A novel idea and always interesting to see what other fans ask and what other fans answer when it comes to what we are thinking.
But I must admit that the final question on the post itself really made me think that some fans of the Mets need a bit of an in service, an intervention, almost like a good talking too.
I don’t know about the rest of you who read this site or follow me on twitter and will get a link to this post, but are you really serious when you ask Mike or any other blogger whether or not you should root for the Mets this season?
First of all, if you think any of us are going to tell you anything different from, of course you should root for the Mets this season and into the future, you are going to be very disappointed.
Why are you questioning your Mets fanhood exactly? Who gives you the right to do something like that? Is it because its easy? because you want to get a cheap laugh through social media? I mean, do we seriously think you are not gonna watch the games, smile when they do win? get angry when they do lose?
The biggest joke in the world to me by fans is when one makes a declaration that they wont spend money to go to games, that their 20 bucks will help the Wilpons save the team.
Sure, we all dislike Jeff, the rat son of our aloof principal owner, who is I’m sure that even close to as evil as his son his. (although I don’t know that for sure, but I like to pretend that I do).
It’s easy to just quit, I mean, this is not life and death and nobody will really care if you decide to sit at home and stare at the wall during the summer nights for 3 hours at a time.
But are you really going to quit? Of course you’re not, don’t pretend that you will and for the love of the Baseball Gods, whom I’m sure you believe have forsaken you, stop asking us, the bloggers and fellow fans if you have something to root for.
You know exactly what you have to root for, you have the Mets, for better or worse, till death do you part, because just like a Marriage, you have ups and downs and divorce can take a lot out of you and the perception you have amongst your peers (although, not to the same extent of course)
Its time to stop questioning ourselves, feeling sorry for ourselves. Time to stand up, dust ourselves off and look towards the future.
You know and have seen the stories of teams coming from nowhere and I don’t need to rehash those old stories, but the point is, those are great stories cause you never saw them coming.
Even though you think you know what will happen to the 2012 Mets, and even though you may be right, it’s the getting their part that is the most fun.
So Mets fans, stop questioning yourself and have some fun, cause that’s what this great game is all about.
