I root for the Cubs in the NL, and I was kinda hoping the Mets would slip in so that I could see a Cubs playoff game.
Then I said to myself, "@#$% the Mets" - Seeing them choke AGAIN is much more rewarding...
This is not in any way sour grapes, but I honestly feel better about the way the Yanks went out than I would have if it happened the Mets' way. They had it in their hands, and they let it slip away.... AGAIN.
Wonder why the Mets opted to have their farewell to Shea ceremony after the game? Do you think those fans felt like sitting through a post game goodbye to Shea after getting knocked out of the playoffs?
Because they're the Mets... LOL! Must have been some farewell celebration!
