Heartbreak at Shea

With Lee‘s blessing, I adopted the Mets as my team at the beginning of the postseason, even rooting for them against my hometown Dodgers. I had been following them pretty closely all year, and I was fortunate enough to be invited along to a Mets game earlier this season at Shea during a Zuckerman family outing.

Last night I watched the game over at Lee’s, with along Jeff, Dodzie, and Vanessa. The top of the 9th home run hit us like a forceful blow to the stomach. I can’t even begin to imagine what Mets fans are feeling as they wake up this morning.

I take some consolation in the fact that I witnessed one of the most incredible baseball plays ever: Endy Chavez’s catch at the wall to preserve a 1-1 tie. I didn’t think that they would lose after something so remarkable. But they did.

And now there is a new season to look forward to.
