It Takes Strength To Be A Mets Fan, Being a Yankee Fan Is... Easy

The Yankees are coming to Flushing this weekend, and our Mets are in great shape to lose each game by 10 runs a piece.  We do have a struggling ball club.

But before this weekend's festivities, or butchering take place I just want to state one thing for the record.

It takes strength to be a Mets fan.

Maybe not as much as it does to be a Pirates fan, or a Kansas City Royal fan, but those two teams don't have to share a city with the Yankees or Yankee fans.

Given those circumstances, it may take more strength to be a Mets fan than any other fan in the league.  No other fan knows what it's like to share a city with the Yankees, baseball's Goliath, the team from beyond Major League Baseball; a team made up entirely of top dollar free agent All Stars.

So, on the eve of what could be a weekend of humiliating baseball, a pummeling by our arch rivals, the Yankees, take comfort in knowing that it takes strength to be a Mets fan, while being a Yankee fan is... easy.  No big deal.  It's painless.  Cake and cookies.

I heard it once said that a Yankee win is just that, a win.  But a Met win, an underdog win, is inspirational.  It transcends sport, into life; something that helps us all believe in our own potential.

So to all you Mets fans out there this weekend, wearing orange and blue is a symbol of having the strength to side with the little guy, number 5,  David.  Not Goliath.
