Having not really listened to it before moving to CT, I'm curious to know why this is the case. I know Red Sox fans have "the sky is falling" mentality, but never realized that Met fans had similar feelings.


As a side note, WFAN is rather refreshing if for nothing else that Mike and the Mad Dog don't spend the show yelling and being assholes like they do on WEEI.
the woe is me met fan and the woe is me red sox fan are very much connected in that most of their woe is me feelings are directly connected to the success of the yankees.

and agreed... from top to bottom, no one does it better than WFAN. thus why they're the godfather of sports radio.

every sports fan within a 100 mile radius of new york city has a chris russo impersonation.

Yeah, the mets fans are usually nervous when the team has something on the line to play for. We're mad when they suck and petrified when they're winning. It's a vicious cycle.

Russo and the Francesa are good, but they tend to get on my nerves w/ the constant yelling....Especially Francesa.

I used to like 1050's Michael Kay, but he is so Yankee centric (for obvious reasons) that he'll never give my Mets their due.

Pissing in an actual sink!

I am LOVING baseball of all types right now. I am off Monday. If there is a game somewhere...I am there (I am hoping for a single-game Dodgers/Phillies playoff).

Um, I'm not bitter at all. The White Sox won the World Series last year. The team played poorly this year and they didn't make the playoffs. I'm over it. Your assumption that I'm bitter is baseless. I've posted nothing here to make anyone think that I'm bitter about the White Sox this year. Being disappointed isn't the same as being bitter. Hell, I hope the Tigers win it all. It seems that the only person throwing around nasty/bitter remarks is yourself. Why don't you contribute to the baseball discussion every once in a while instead of just posting garbage to annoy people.

And it's so funny how you've never mentioned that you like the Tigers before.

I'm not sure about the Yankees. I'm not really sure about any team this year.

Every week it seems like a different team could win it - especially in the NL. I mean a month ago the Dodgers were the trendy pick to win it all, now they have to hang on just to get in. I also think that if Houston somehow sneeks in there that they will depart rather quickly, having spend everything in the 10 days, but they've made for great drama.

I haven't watched much baseball lately due to a bunch of reasons, but it I really wish I had the time to watch more. I'm even more interested to see what the Red Sox are going to do in the offseason. There were big changes this year and I think even bigger ones will be in store for this offseason.
