Who's Excited? ME! Yankees vs. Mets game!

One of the guys I work for has season tickets to the Yankees. Each year he lets me pick a game and gives me the tickets for free. I was looking at the schedule, and on Friday June 24th they are playing the Mets! I have never been to a Subway Series before, so I am super excited!!!

I've been to at least one of the Shea games pretty much every year since they started interleague (i missed 2003)

I don't know how it is in the Bronx, with most Yankee fans being subhuman tools and all, but at Shea the experience is just amazing. I think anyone who is even remotely a baseball fan should go to an NY/NY game some time just for the experience.

I'm excited fro you that you get to see what all the fuss is about, you'll love it.

I absolutely resent being called "sub-human" Us Yankee fans (especially those who reside in the Bronx) are just fans...that's all. The media and other lack luster poor performing teams have painted this picture and everyone has fallen for it. Ok, I will admit the "Bleacher Bums" are pretty scary (even us "normal" folk try to stay away from them).

Didn't mean to offend...I said most, so of course present company is excluded. I don't need the media or anyone else to tell me what's what when it comes to Yankees fans...I lived most of my life in NY so I know how you guys are!

Actually, you didn't! Just a little poke at the Met's fans so we can get this rivalry started the right way. Plus, us Yankee fans are always in denial anyway...how else can we explain losing four in a row to Boston????

The Moose (Mike Mussina) is pitching most likely. He was my favorite when he played for the Orioles. Going against Pedro Martinez. Should be a great matchup! You got lucky with the rotation, I'd say.

Have fun!

Wouldn't it be interesting if Pedro suffers another "meltdown" against the Yankees?

Just a thought.

yeah i'm big time worried about pedro against the yankees...the only way i could see him pitching good against them was if he was on the devil rays since the yankees cant buy a win against them

Well, the game was super intense as I expected. The mets played extremely well (and that hurts me to admit!). The Yankees got robbed so many times I lost count! I stayed till the last out - which was an intense one considering we thought he was safe and then all of a sudden the game was over!

All in all a wonderful game.

I watched the game on TV Lori. It was a good game despite the error by B. Williams that allowed the Met's to set a record for sacrifice flies in an inning (three). Those three runs proved to be the winning margin. Better luck next time.

Being a baseball traditionalist, I never cared much for expansion, the DH rule, and interleague play. The exception of course is Mets vs Yanks. Others may disagree but NY has to be the best baseball town in the U.S. Heck........ I don't even remember the Dodgers and Giants playing here but I'm still sore they moved.

Back to Mets vs Yanks..... It really gets the juices flowing in this town. Now I can't say that I actually hate the Yankees but I do enjoy it when they lose. Especially when the defeat comes at the hands of the METS.

To add to the contraversy, I'd like the Yankee fans here to explain something to me. Ya see, I feel rooting for the Yankees to win is like hoping the Saudis find more oil. They're just expected to win everything all of the time. So Yankee fans, how can you root for a team where the agony of defeat is greater than the thrill of victory?

Let's Go Mets!!!!!!

Well Brian...since you asked:

Growing up in the Bronx...just a stones throw from Yankee Stadium created some interesting loyalities. On the one hand, when the Giants left the Polo Grounds, a lot of the older folks I grew up with were mad as h e (double hockey sticks). The children (that would be me) couldn't figure out what the fuss was about...Yankee Stadium was right there.

It was cheaper to take the kids to Yankee Stadium for a game...bleacher seats back then were $.50. The Yankee's fielded some interesting teams during the late 60's and early 70's...but they didn't win.

Fast forward to the mid 70's and all of a sudden, the Yanks start winning! My generation had never seen a winning Yankee team...we were all agog. The 1976 and 77 years were indeed special. This passion lasts because of the tradition of losing endured during the previous decades. I cannot speak for anyone under the age of 40, these folks have no conception.

So, from a life long Yankee fan...who lives in the Bronx, I hope you can understand the passion...so what we won for several years, resulting in Parades three years in a row? 8O For the record, I at least knew it wouldn't last forever. I'm comfortable with this.

(PS - I follow the Met's as well...since they are "The poor man's National League Team"...a phrase my elder's used when speaking of the defection of the Dodger's and Giants).
