Actually, being separated from Manhattan for so long, I've grown to not hate the Mets the way some do who still live in the 5 Boroughs.
(Plus when i was around 8 or 9, a buddy had a birthday party up at Shea...nosebleed seats above RF so and that was great experience for me as kid. First ballgame I ever went to...Mookie, Straw and Keith)
So I never had and never will have issues with the Team or its fans...
Being so far from my Birthplace has created a sort of "as long as NY wins..." attitude.
(except for the jets and isles though)
