... on being a Mets fan

There is currently a huge uproar
over an Audio-guy at SNY airing
a clip from "Family Guy"
in which Stewie says
that being a Mets

I'm not sure what the big deal is.
Firstly, was anyone watching
the post-game show at all?

.. I was at the opening game in Miami,
and the only reason I stayed till the end
was for the fireworks display.

(which was definitely not Grucci, by the way)

Secondly, it's true.
...being a Mets fan is not easy.

Also, this is the most press SNY
has gotten since Joe DeRosa
played the guy with a TV for a head.

(... and this lesser-known commercial)

Think of it this way... at least
Mets fan have something to
talk about other than the
fact that the team sucks,
and the owners are
broke due to a 
pyramid scheme.

As a former employee of SNY,
I can tell you that the crew there
spends more time watching
Family Guy than any show
that airs on SportsNet NY.

 (as do most viewers in their target market)

Maybe this should be an eye-opener.
Instead of being pissed-off, SNY
fat-cats should consider taking
a look at some comedic programming
to distract people from their crappy team.

Let's face it... being a Mets fan is hard.
Almost as hard as it is for Wright, Reyes,
or (why is he on the field?) Beltran to get a hit.

...but we still watch.

Let's go Mets.
