CJ Sullivan is a Genius
In start contrast to me, CJ Sullivan is brilliant. CJ wrote an article entitled The Mr. Met Beatdown that is simply on the money. I always knew the Mets were NY's team, but I was not quite sure why. Now, I can stop wondering. This town belongs to Mr. Met.
The Mets are more like New York because Shea Stadium—the house the Mets built badly—is a mess in constant need of repair, much like most city apartments. Even the bathroom plumbing is decrepit. The workers are rude. The Mets also have bad season after bad season, losing more than they win, just like most of us. When was the last time you won anything?
The Yankees, on the other hand, are like a small leafy town in the far reaches of Connecticut. They have all this faux history and myth and ghosts that haunt the stadium. If M. Night Shyamalan made a film about the Yankees and their Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig/Mickey Mantle/Thurman Munson legends, the lead character would be some spoiled kid from Westchester, sitting in his box seat telling his father, "I see dead Yankees…"
A must read...
Thanks to Mikey H. for pointing the article out.
