Five Questions For An Average Mets Fan (Fan #51)

Today's Five Questions for an average Mets Fan go to Corey.

1. When did you start following the Mets?
Probably when my dad started taking me to games: 1977 or so.

2. What is your favorite Mets memory?
Beltran's home run against St. Louis in the makeup/rain-out renumbered NLCS Game 2 (or 3...not sure which it actually was now), 2006.

3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?
Last game at Shea.  It made me question the meaning of existence.

4. If you could change one off-field thing about the franchise what would it be?
Stop holding press conferences and issuing press releases that cause more problems than they solve.

5. If you owned the team starting tomorrow, what is the first thing you would change?
Sorry, Shannon--but I would get rid of the pinstripe uniforms completely (too Yankees), and just go black w/gray pants. Reasons: #1 - Since the black jerseys came they've had more general success than I felt like I witnessed when I was growing up, #2 - I'm also an Oakland Raiders fan (yes, I guess I DO love to suffer, at least since 2002) #3.) black has a more NYC-Metropolitan look to me than any other uni-combo, #4) Why are so many people gung-ho about Mets traditions when we're clinging to an era lasting basically four times longer than the Marlins' organization and we have the same two W.S. wins to show for it?

Hmmm...I'll stick to my pledge to just post the comments so everyone can I have a say ;)
