Five Questions For An Average Mets Fan (Fan #46)

Today's Five Questions For An Average Mets Fan goes to Clancy.

Hey Shannon

First, love Mets Police. One of my favorite Mets sites, keep up the great work. Saw the questionnaire and love the idea, so ...

1. When did you start following the Mets?

My Mom was a Mets fan from day one, so they were always on TV. Baseball started making sense to me in 1972, so that's when I started watching. My heart was broken on June 15, 1977 and didn't follow 'em again until 1983.

2. What is your favorite Mets memory?

Johan's three-hitter against the Marlins last September. The entire season rested on his shoulders and he carried the team - on three days rest and with a bum knee, no less. Greatest performance I ever witnessed. (Seeing Bobby Jones' one-hitter against the Giants, Game 4, NLDS, 2000, is a close second for me.)

3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?

1988. Crushed.

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

Ownership. And ownership. Also, ownership.

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

Embrace the fans, celebrate their love of this team, thank them for all the support, recognize the team's history and what it all means for, and to, the community. Reciprocity works wonders. (The Red Sox owners are masters of this.)

Best to you,
