Tue, 9 Aug 2011 17:25:32 EST 13 innings and what a win! 13 innings fans! How awesome that our Mets won! We are so used to being defeated at this point of a 13 inning game! <BR> What a funny way to win too! But hey looks good on paper! Thu, 23 Jun 2011 16:26:18 EST Hi!!! Welcome to the Mets Team! Please introduce yourself here! <BR> <BR> I am a 40 something Met fan. I was a Red Sox fan when I was a boy but when they lost that one game playoff to the Yankees - I decided no more - and I started to root for My Dad's Mets. They did not disappoint - they were expected to be just okay and they were. So starting in Spring of 1979 - I was a Met fan. <BR> <BR> To be honest - starting to wonder about that decision. Wed, 2 Mar 2011 17:23:19 EST Favorite Met Player of All-Time Mine - The Kid - Gary Carter <BR> He was brash, he was happy, he was a winner!!! GARY!!! GARY!!! GARY!!! <BR> <BR> Favorite Current Player? <BR> Wright - but I had to think long and hard about this - Do not really have a strong favorite. I like David, Jose & Murphy. I know Murphy doesn't quite fit with the other two talent wise but it what it is! Wed, 2 Mar 2011 17:16:25 EST What were the 5 worst free agent signings by Mets? Here is my list <BR> Ollie Perez - I was really mad when I heard they signed him <BR> Bobby Bonilla - Killer B - killed the Mets chances of winning a World Series <BR> Luis Castillo - Let's see - has knee problems but use to be fast - sign him up <BR> Vince Coleman - Fast of artificial turf - great - sign him up for Shea's grass <BR> Superstar young SS with huge potential - I know - let's sign Kaz Matsui to play SS and move Reyes to 2nd. Yeah - that's a great idea. Wed, 2 Mar 2011 17:11:46 EST 2011 Season - Predictions on Mets W-L record 88 - 74 <BR> <BR> What is your prediction? Sun, 20 Feb 2011 20:23:25 EST 2011 Met Chat Are there any Mets fans out there and monitoring this site? <BR> Respond back and let me know. <BR> <BR> Let's Go Mets!!! <BR> <BR> Paul Thu, 17 Feb 2011 12:07:00 EST How to feed our kids healthy in school All to often, as parents and grand-parents, we complain about the grub items our kids are offered by the inschool lunch programs. <BR> <BR> We talk to the teachers during school conferences. <BR> <BR> We kevach at school board meetings. <BR> <BR> We write letters to the Boards of Education and the Health Department. <BR> <BR> We TRY to convince our kids of the benefits of brown bagging. <BR> <BR> NOTHING WORKS!!!! <BR> <BR> Well take a look at SP-Tanya's 11/1/10 Daily Blog on what you a... Mon, 1 Nov 2010 13:05:51 EST PR Anyone watching game 1 in Puerto Rico? I am so fighting with Dickey right now Mon, 28 Jun 2010 20:05:10 EST 2010 Go NY Mets!!!

Any thoughts on our starting line up / pitching staff? Thank goodness Green and Pelfrey are staring in the minors! GO METS! Mon, 29 Mar 2010 13:11:04 EST Let the Games Begin 2009 going to my first game this season on the 18th, can't wait. Wed, 1 Apr 2009 07:00:58 EST Citifield Photos I have added some interior photos of citified, while under construction, on my page. If you want me to add more I can - just let me know. <BR> <BR> Laura Tue, 24 Feb 2009 16:28:15 EST Did you sign up for Club Mets? Just wondering... <BR> <BR> Laura Tue, 24 Feb 2009 16:21:24 EST 10000 steps a day till opening day Let us all get a move-on Spring is coming! Let us make the Mets proud of their fans ! <em>300</em> Mon, 23 Feb 2009 07:15:27 EST Shea Demolition I went out to Shea this weekend to check out the demolition. <BR> <BR> I have three photos posted online if anyone is interested and seeing what I saw: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>252254106/ </link> <BR> <link><BR>252254080/in/photostream/ </link> <BR> <link><BR>251427977/in/photostream/ </link> <BR> <BR> Can't wait to take in a game at Citi. <BR> <BR> LETS GO METS! <BR> James Wed, 4 Feb 2009 09:49:52 EST 2009 Pitching Who will the Mets have behind Santana, Maine, and Pelfrey in the rotation next year? There are rumors online about the negotiations with Lowe, and there's still a chance that they can sign Perez. <BR> <BR> I'd like to see them sign Pedro to contract full of performance-based incentives. He's not the fireballer that he was in his youth, but he's a very smart pitcher and I think he has another couple years left in his arm. He can be a great asset to all the younger guys, even Santana, too. Thu, 25 Dec 2008 18:47:12 EST Anyone attending any Spring Training games? Since some of you have been blanketed in cold snow - thought we'd talk about Spring! Spring Training that is in sunny Fla. Laura Tue, 23 Dec 2008 19:28:26 EST Bring on 2009! Great season NY Mets - Came very close - We will get there in 2009!!!!!!!!!! <em>300</em> Sun, 28 Sep 2008 17:42:16 EST Meet the Mets/Greet the Mets Made my final trip to Shea on Saturday and saw the bullpen choke it in the 8th and blow a fabulous effort by Santana...sadly I didn't stay for the nightcap (I went back into Manhattan with my fiancee, to whom I had proposed atop the ESB earlier in the day!) <BR> <BR> Anyway, Citi Field looks gorgeous sitting out their waiting for her debut next season. <BR> <BR> Let's Go Mets!

Let's get healthy while we're doing it. <BR> <BR> For every run the Mets score, do 10 push-ups (any kind). <BR> For every hit the Mets get, do 10 crunches (again, any kind). <BR> For every strike out thrown by Mets pitchers, do 10 jumping jacks. <BR> <BR> Who's up for it? Fri, 4 Apr 2008 10:20:20 EST First Game of the Season LETS GO METS!!!! Mon, 31 Mar 2008 09:16:43 EST Spring Training!!! As you probably know spring training has started which means that opening day is closer!!! Yay!!! Cant wait for this season!! Wed, 5 Mar 2008 08:49:21 EST New Girl Here Hey! I'm Audrey and I have been a lifetime Mets fan (only 26 years old but my Dad started me off from birth). My favorite player is David Wright but I absolutely love the whole team. I've been a member of SP since April of last year but stopped doing it for a while. Now I'm back and I'm ready to commit to it. I cant wait for the 2008 season to begin! Drop by and say hi anytime! Good luck to all! Mon, 11 Feb 2008 12:47:14 EST Staying on your diet while visiting Shea. How do you guys manage to catch a ballgame at Shea and stay on your food plan? There is something about watching baseball (particularly at a stadium) that promotes eating. Although I've been more mindful of what I eat I still find that healthy food choices at the stadium are hard to come by. That delicious Italian sausage with grilled onions and peppers can't possibly be good for me. Any suggestions? Thu, 31 Jan 2008 14:59:08 EST Hello I am new to this team! I am origially from CT, mother of two beautiful daughters and love baseball! Wed, 30 Jan 2008 22:34:59 EST NEW ..METS FAN HERE BEEN A METS FAN SINCE I WAS ABOUT 6 USED TO LISTEN TO THEM ON THE RADIO WHEN I LIVED IN STATEN ISLAND... LOVE THEM NOW ..

I know there's only so much he can do, but I will definitely be there when he pitches for the first time at Shea. He brings an energy that no one else can match. Wed, 29 Aug 2007 15:14:57 EST AAAAAAAAugh! Braves! OK, I am on record as saying this has gotta stop. I can't stand losing to the frickin' Braves! Especially in our own house! What is going ON, boys?
