There's one trait that separates Mets fans from almost all other fans in the country: eternal optimism.
Year in and year out, the Mets break our hearts. Whether it's late season collapses, full season struggles or terrible signings, the Mets constantly test the loyalty of their fans.
Yet we remain loyal, and we sometimes have no idea why.
The answer is optimism. No matter how bad the Mets treat us, we believe that every year things will get better and that the next season is going to be ours.
Well 2012, is dead. Let's look to 2013 when it will be our year! (Right? Maybe?)
