Tip Your Cap

RespectMets_small   What a great sign of respect this was on Terry's part. The final out was just recorded, the Mets won and the offseason was just beginning. Terry trotted out, tossed some balls up to our crew and tipped his cap. The 2014 season was now officially over. Photographer Brian Sokoloff was also in the stands that day. He snapped this moment and I've since had it blown up for my office. I stare at it every single day. This photo shows much more than just Terry and his nice gesture. It shows hundreds of passionate fans equally excited to share this moment together. Clapping, pointing, smiling and genuinely thrilled. This is what The 7 Line Army is all about. Those faces inspire me to do what I do. A small handful of fans are also tipping their caps back. This has stood out to me the most lately. Terry doesn't know any of us, but he appreciates our consistent loyalty both at home and on the road.

Here's an idea.

Let's do this together on Opening Day. 860 of us standing after the ceremonial first pitch and tipping our caps to our team. Our players. Our coaches. It's great to be there with family and friends, but we are really there for the team. It would be a great sign of respect and support. We'll end it with a massive LET'S GO METS chant to officially get the 2015 season started. Dumb? Cool? Sure, why not? What do ya think?
