So I get emails from time to time asking, so where did you guys go? And the simple answer is no where. We are still here and we are still Mets fans, but the truth is there just hasn’t been that passion to write and blog about a team that has very little appeal to them, long term. We are passionate fans and to watch every game every day can really take it’s toll on you. I find it’s healthier for me to take a step away and take the “wait and see ” approach and let them draw me back, instead of continually wishing they get better, invest money, etc etc etc.
In the mean time I have been doing a lot of handicapping with the NFL. It can be just as stressful but it’s a lot of fun. It’s really super easy too I just click to view odds and then look at what Vegas has set the lines for on this weeks games (you can also get the odds on the Mets for next season if your feeling particularly lucky, or charitable).
For me it can be tough as a really huge New York Giants fan, to keep myself objective and not just bet with my heart and passion. I try to stay away from their games, but at the same time they are the team I know the best and have the best feel for, especially early in the season when the NFL is so chaotic and good teams are down and last years doormats are showing signs of promise.
It can be a long cold winter as Mets fan, especially when it’s hard to even look forward to spring training knowing the Wilpons and Management will do very little to improve this team. It’s up to use to find ways to enjoy ourselves and get the highs along with the lows we know so well. For me even as a huge football fan I love putting some action on games I wouldn’t normally care about because it can make them so much fun to watch.
