And Then There Was One
With the final game of the regular 2010 season approaching us, I think it’s only fair to give credit where credit is due.
Though the end result is just as disappointing no matter how you slice it, this year’s Mets team did do something different in the way of sparing our feelings.
This time, they did not wait until the last week of the season to choke. Nope. Instead, they decided to just completely shut it down the entire second half of the season so that by now, we would already be used to it and know what to expect. I guess you could say the avoided the shock factor this year.
Sure, they still had their exciting games here and there. But before fans got too hopeful again, they’d lose five out of six. Whew, welcome back, guys.
I admit, I didn’t watch many games down the home stretch. Not that I didn’t want to, I just, didn’t want to. I did, however, see yesterday’s game, and while it meant absolutely nothing, I did get choked up when David Wright hit that three-run homer to put the Mets ahead. No matter how terrible the team could be at any given time, they are still my Mets. And sometimes you don’t realize what you have until it’s almost gone.
The 2010 season is almost gone. And today is the day that all Mets fans should remember the reasons why they were a fan in the first place, and forget about what went wrong, again.
Here’s to a better off-season, that will make for a better 2011!!!
