A Phillies Fan Lament
Here’s an interesting article from a Phillies fan who apparently is not afraid to hide the fact he is tired of chasing the Mets.
The following is just a small part of the full article, so I encourage you to read the rest at The 700 Level.
I’m tired of this. I’m tired of having to come up with some silver lining for the next two and a half weeks. I’m tired of waking up and seeing the Mets boxscore and wondering if it’s even possible to catch a team that has gotten better after each pitcher goes down for the season.
I’m tired of the Chase. I’m tired of chasing the Mets. I’m tired of chasing the Brewers, begging for a four-game sweep this weekend to maybe get into the Wild Card. I’m tired of chasing anyone. This should be a first-place team. That’s what we were promised.
I think this is so hilarious… I thought we were bad, but I can honestly say I don’t think any Mets fan would stoop this low. Sometimes we may question whether our team has had heart in the past, but clearly our heart and loyalty was rarely in question.
Go check out the rest of the article and get a good laugh.
