LGM 2017

The 2016 season is officially over and we sit here with mixed emotions. Disappointed the Mets only played one game in the postseason, but proud that they even got that far. Accepting that isn't a failure or "losers" mentality. That's life and dealing with the good, bad and ugly makes you stronger. Looking back at the year, 9 out of 10 teams wouldn't have gotten this far. Hats off to them.

Going in to this season we had the highest of hopes for the team. Due to circumstances beyond anyones predictions, that dream fell apart rather quickly. Almost nightmare status. As they announced the players on the field before the game last night, the ones with the loudest ovations (Big Sexy excluded) were out for the year with season ending injuries. Don't need to list them, but you know their names well.

Guys like Lugo and Gsellman, whom many of us didn't know before the season started, stepped up to the mound and the team came together for an exciting final month of the season. While down 2 games under .500 it could have been easy to roll over and accept this year was over back in August. They didn't. TC and the Blonde Bombshells pieced together what looked to be a very fun clubhouse down the stretch. They looked loose, they were smiling, they were winning series after series. It was fun to watch.

Now, our season is over, but we're never done. The 7 Line Army as a group is stronger than ever. Watching you guys bond this year was inspiring to say the least. While they weren't always wins, from SD to Yankee Stadium... we rocked em all. Strangers become friends and friends become family all over our love of the Mets. That is the proudest moment of all.

METS TIL DEATH. LGM 2017.

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
