WE STAND WITH MR. MET

The Mets suck. This has been fact for decades; nobody disputes this, or, at this point, goes to Mets games expecting a win. You go to be a Met fan -- a league of people who are not known for their delicate sensibilities. That's why the firing of the Mets mascot, Mr. Met in May for flipping his finger at hecklers is much more offensive than the actual gesture.  How hot is it in that costume anyway? Come on. Mr. Met is from Queens, New York. That's practically a welcome in Queens.
