Five Questions For An Average Mets Fan (Fan #16)

If you are new to the Mets Police, we're in the middle of a series called "Five Questions For An Average Mets Fan."  I will continue to sprinkle in 4 or so of these each day until I post everyone's answers.  I'm not commenting in the posts by design so that other fans can get their voice heard by the folks in Flushing without my color commentary.

The breakfast spot this morning goes to Mike..

1. When did you start following the Mets?

I've been a Mets fan my whole life.  My dad was a Dodgers fan, born and raised in Brooklyn, then took on the Mets as his hometown favorite.  The family was with him 100%.  I've been attending games since the late 70s, though my first memories are from '84-'86.

2. What is your favorite Mets memory?

Game 6, baby.  Watching with my high school buddies in my basement. Though my dad couldn't get us tickets, he did wrangle some Shea dogs from the Diamond Club caterer, who he supplied seafood to at the time.

3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?

Tim Teufel's' pinch hit grand slam.  I was still a teenager, and I was a die-hard Backman fan.

4. If you could change one off-field thing about the franchise what would it be?

Trading Dykstra and McDowell for Juan Samuel.  That was the worst trade ever.  They gave away their heart and soul for a guy who didn't seem to want to be there.

5. If you owned the team starting tomorrow, what is the first thing you would change?

Communication between players,coaches, medical staff and mgt about injuries and health issues. It's time to stop running players into the ground and then telling half-truths to the fans about it.
