$48....the number of Randy Myers, and our 48th fan with answers to the 5 Questions for an average Mets fan is Charles..
1. When did you start following the Mets?
1972, Willie Mays was brought home, Dad
took me to a game and Henry Aaron hit two out.
Willie made a basketcatch in CF. The love affair
2. What is your favorite Mets memory?
1986, the season and what it meant to all of us.
The post-season, the celebration, finally realizing
and understanding we were the best.
3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?
George Thomas Seaver being traded.1988, blowing up against the Dodgers. Gooden admitting a terrible problem.
4. If you could change one off-field thing about the franchise what would it be?
The Wilpons to sell. If you love your business and cant do it very well, youd put someone else in charge and sit back and reap
their work and benefit from their work. If you dont want to do that and continue to fail, you sell.
5. If you owned the team starting tomorrow, what is the first thing you would change?
The culture which has taken over this team and is is now very much alive. That being the second best in this town is OK. Its not. Embrace the past, the good and the bad, celebrate Tom, Kooz, Gil, 73, 86, 00. The fact that, that place opened up without a tribute or statue dedicated to Gil or Tom is a disgrace.
Again, please sell, Mr Wilpon. If you love it, let it go.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.
