Reasons to be Thankful You’re a Mets Fan

Friday, November 28th, 2008
  1. The bright future of Jose Reyes and David Wright
  2. Johan Santana’s changeup.
  3. Memories of Mike Piazza’s dramatic home runs
  4. The Immortal Shinjo
  5. Robin Ventura’s grand slam single
  6. Endy Chavez’ catch
  7. Lenny Dykstra and Roger McDowel were traded for Juan Samuel; that’s just funny.
  8. Mookie Wilson’s “hit” in the ’86 Series
  9. Keith Hernandez’ appearance on Seinfeld
  10. Al Leiter’s ’99 one-game playoff complete-game shutout
  11. The 7 train
  12. The ginormousness of Mr. Mets’ head; it’s so great that the Reds cloned him!
  13. The drama of the non-stop string of Almost No-Hitters
  14. Shawn Estes MISSED Roger Clemens; what other team would have a moment like that?
  15. The half-second during the bottom of the first inning on the last day of the 2007 season when we all thought that Ramon Castro’s line-out was a grand slam.
  16. Vince Coleman threw fire crackers at kids after a game; he thought he was an NFL running back or something.
  17. Vince Coleman’s firecracker fun was on the SAME DAY that Anthony Young lost his 27th straight game.  Awesome.
  18. Tom Seaver was in the dugout during the Mets 1986 Series win. The RED SOX’s dugout. Ouch.
  19. The constant smell of urine and tar at Shea Stadium.
  20. Suzyan Waldman is not an SNY broadcaster, but Gary Cohen is.
