Missed the press elevator tonight so I walked the ramps down. Got to hear Mets’ fans at their vocal best, “Yankees s—, Yankees s—.” What is that?
The Yankees didn’t even play tonight. If the teams were in the same division the Mets would be in front by 11 1/2 games. Barring a collapse, the Mets are going to the playoffs. Barring a miracle, the Yankees are going home in October.
Why can’t Mets fans just enjoy the ride without bringing the Yankees into it? It reminds me of when the Patriots won the Super Bowl and Boston fans were chanting about the Yankees.
When you’re chanting that, you’re admitting the Yankees are in your heads. Hey, enjoy the ride that the other guys aren’t going to be on anytime soon.
