As I watched the post-game show yesterday on SNY and heard all of the people yelling “Let’s Go Mets” behind Carlin and Ojeda, I could only think how enthusiasm is contagious. We Met fans need to be positive, every game, period. If we lose a tough one the night before, big deal, get over it and let’s get that winning streak to 1 the following night. Positivity can go a far way people.
I know we don’t hit the ball or field it but I really think we have more power then you may realize. As I recently talked about in my blog, Be Positive People, we need Citi Field to be a home field advantage. We want opposing players to hate coming to Flushing and we want our own to love playing for the Flushing Faithful. I think over the past years with all the negativity going around, our players probably hate being at home and probably enjoy being on the road better. I think that is just terrible, we need to Citi to shake and to intimidate opposing clubs.
Think about the 1986 club, they are beloved and rightfully so but these guys are hit with a lovefest everytime they are seen in Queens. I don’t think this is a bad thing, I adore them too but I feel we also need to do this with our current club. I think after the past three seasons they need some love. I look at these guys as my family and when things go against my family, I don’t turn on them, I only get louder and support them more. I hope some of you can understand that, I really feel that some love may go along way with this club.
I understand booing is a part of being a New York sports fan but next time you are at a game take a look and realize it is much more fun to harass Jimmy Rollins, Chipper Jones or Hanley Ramirez. I think we, the fan can help get this black cloud away from the team, and it can start with us being enthusiastic and cheering on this club and letting them know we want them to succeed. So when you find yourself at a game, grab a cold one, bring some friends, stand up and as loud as you can YELL LET’S GO METS, I will be back in June to join you!
