Today's average Mets fan is John.
When did you first become a fan?
1. I guess it was around 1983 or so as a ten year old. The first memory I have is them being in last place but Kelvin Chapman hitting a grand slam to left and going crazy.
Favorite Mets memory?
2. This one is easy. I was at game 6 of the World Series in 86 in the upper deck down the right field line. I remember in the 10th my brother and his friends making fun of people that were leaving with two outs.
3. This would probably be finding out that Dwight Gooden was a drug addict. He was my hero as a kid and just seemed flawless. I wanted to pitch just like him. Then to find out all that stuff and to watch his decline just killed it all for me.
One off-field thing you would change?
4. I would change where they play so I could get to see them more. It's like $14 just in tolls and over an hour just to get to a game.
If you owned the team?
5.If I owned them now the first thing I would change is the ticket prices for next year. The team is one of the top valued organizations every year and turn in a stinker like last year and still charge what they do? I would take a hit for a year to show people they deserve more for their buck and we know it.
