This New York Mets fan not only experienced some emotion as he called into Mike Francesa’s Sunday morning show, he started crying.
By Robby Sabo
If you’re a fan of the New York Mets you certainly get it. Even general baseball fans fully understand what’s going on.
It’s been nine long seasons the Mets have been in the playoffs, so, naturally, 2015 was a big year for the fanbase. Now, they’re living and dying with every pitch. Each moment is critical and put on an emotional level that hasn’t been seen in a very long time.
Crying though? This guy is a fan.
Listen to this Mets fan as he called into Mike Francesa’s Sunday morning (football) show on WFAN (video above). His emotion when discussing the dirty Chase Utley play that broke Ruben Tejada’s leg and completely turned around Game 2 of the NLDS are as raw as it can get.
This, my friends, is a fan who literally lives and dies with his team. And if Matt Harvey doesn’t get the job done on Monday night, I shutter to think what this guy will do afterwards.
