This morning i have spent most of my time learning a little bit of Met history.
As a relatively new Mets fan i thought it would be good to learn a bit more. So today i managed to get MLB.TV Baseball Best package. I’m currently watching game 5 of the 1969 world series. (amazin pardon the pun) and will be followed by 1986 game 6.
I have learnt is that i’m so disappointed that i never did make it to Shea and that despite not being alive for one world series win and only 5 for the other one, i’m still filled with pride when watching these videos. I got chills and teary eyed when the field got stormed by fans in 69. Its so clear why these players have become legends in their own right.
So i decided to do a bit more research and read more books. So far i have only read Faith and Fear in Flushing, which was a fantastic personal account of a Mets fan. If anyone can recommend any other books to read then let me know!
