When “Will from Queens” cried with his Mets on Mike Francesa’s Sunday morning WFAN show, the entire internet buzzed. He’s now back.

Will from Queens. Remember that guy?
You should. The memory of him should still be fresh in your minds. He was the melancholy fellow who called into Mike Francesa’s WFAN Sunday morning show to discuss the events surrounding his New York Mets on Saturday night.
The Chase Utley slide that broke Ruben Tejada’s leg, coupled with Matt Harvey’s eventual Game 3 start had Will in quite the emotional state (video above).
Of course his emotional ways didn’t go unnoticed by the general public, as Twitter and sports media publications alike reacted in a major way.
Well, with Harvey and the Mets ready to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS tonight, Will from Queens has a message.
He personally contacted us to provide this very special message on the morning of Game 3:
I read your article and you hit it on the head, Will said. Nine long seasons. (Carlos) Beltran’s stikeout; (Johan) Santana’s no-hitter; and the events that surrounded Wilmer Flores this year…emotional moments and the Mets seem to be tied together.
I am a teacher in Queens and have brought many of my classes to the stadium over the years so they feel a connection to the 7-Train, Queens and our Mets. I try to have my students understand when a moment comes into your life to Seize it. “Carpe Diem!”
Well, this is Harvey’s moment. I have been disappointed in his actions and I have not worn his jersey all year. I am going to wear it tonight and I want him to have a game for the ages.
It has been said he creates the fire. Well, this is a moment that is all for him and the taking. I want him to pitch for all the fans that cannot be at the game. I have lived all the moments this year on the radio. I share the last name of their manager and now Flores and I have both shed tears for the team. I know the stadium will be rocking and wish I could be there but will listen on the radio with Josh and Howie.
Robby, you said it all…living and dying with every pitch.
Will, Queens, NY
Very well put Will. Sometimes the diehard fan simply cannot explain why he’s built that very way. It’s impossible to explain why emotion is so closely tied with the results.
One this is for sure, tonight it is on Harvey. It’s his night.
