I don’t have long to mark this special occasion, so maybe I will later on this week (I’m a high school teacher an the first semester is coming to a conclusion today) but I wanted to drop a note about the fifth year anniversary of this website!
It was five years ago today that I started this website as a way to vent about being a Mets fan, and I wanted to thank all of you who read this website and share in the experience with me.
One thing that is hard to believe is that I was the same age as my students right now when I started this website.
Another item that is hard to believe is the difference between the Mets then and now. I started this website after the let down of 2006, without the darkness of 2007 and 2008 ahead. Without the injuries of 2009 and 2010. With no knowledge of the mediocrity of 2011. With no hint of financial disaster that would smear over several seasons. This website was born in the peak of the Minaya era and is now in the sitting in the largest budget reduction in baseball history.
It has been an interesting five years. Thank you for your support and I hope to continue to bring baseball commentary to you for years to come.
