DC Sports Guy Says There's Not Enough Disdain For Mets Fans

DC Sports Guy Says There's Not Enough Disdain For Mets Fans

Besides Citi Field, I've been to more games at Nationals Park than anywhere else since 2015. It's a great place to take in a ball game, but for whatever reason the Nationals don't draw very well. Although the team is currently leading the Wild Card race, they're on pace to welcome less through the gates than any year since 2011. 

I'm not about to pretend like Citi Field is always popping, but when the chips are down and our guys like Pete "LFGM" Alonso, and Michael Conforto put out the bat signal, the fans turned out in droves. That kind of atmosphere helps stack W's, and players constantly talk about how they feed off the energy of an exciting crowd. 

We head down on Monday with The 7 Line Army for our annual outing. Due to it being Labor Day, it was a little smaller of an outing for us, but still 600 strong. The Mets won, and we had a phenomenal time as usual, but a few decided to get mad online.

Local DC sports journalist and broadcaster, Grant Paulsen decided to toss his two cents in the mix with some of the weirdest takes yet. 

A NAME! Could you ever imagine being mad at something like that? Who doesn't like names? Sounds like Grant might be a secret member of Project Mayhem. You know who else had a name? Robert Paulsen. Same last name as our new buddy Grant. Coincidence? 

Next up was the freezing cold take that T7LA hits road ballparks with the purpose to annoy. Nah, not to cheer on our team. Hundreds of fans spend their time and money each year to go annoy Grant and Nationals fans, not to cheer on our Mets.

He tripled down on his radio show this afternoon saying "there's not enough disdain for Mets fans". For the record, my buddy who's a Mets fan and lives down in VA tried to call in, and they wouldn't put him on the air. 

So there ya have it, folks. Instead of urging the locals to get down to the park to cheer on the Nationals, let's point fingers and hate on fans that actually show up for their team. That's gotta be the problem! 

Can't wait to hear those LGM chants from the ballpark tonight! "Ugh, so annoying!" - definitely Grant Paulen at 7:05pm.
