I am not going to lie. I was inspired to do a fun-themed post earlier in the day when I saw a Bleacher Report post that had A-Rod being the Grinch who stole April.

In this post, I am going to revise the ever so popular “12 Days of Christmas” and change it to being the “12 Days as a Mets Fan.”

Enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you think.
