Daniel Shoptaw over at C70 AT THE BAT likes to get a feel for other teams around baseball by asking bloggers for those teams some questions about their squad. Not only has this series been very popular, but it spawned the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.
I had the pleasure of sending over my thoughts on the Mets for 2012, as well as their off season, and found that many other Mets bloggers chimed in with their thoughts also. Some were surprising, some were not, and others just made sense. The best part about the whole post is definitely the first line: “Ah, the Mets.” Sums it all up, doesn’t it?
I saw my first game back in 1987 against the Montreal Expos. I can recall walking up those concrete ramps to the "Uppers" with my family at Shea. The banter of New Yorkers talking about their lives. The smell of hot dogs as the vendors passed by. The darkness of a 7:10 game right before you enter the short tunnel welcoming one of the most magnificent sights you will ever see as a young boy - the green grass of a major league baseball field.
