We need this in Queens.

WorldSeries

Why would a Mets fan fly to KC for game 7 of the World Series? Seems silly to some. For me, it was motivation.

In 1986 I was just about to turn 6 and didn’t go to the series. While my parents were fans, I have no strong memories of those games besides all the highlights we’ve all seen hundreds of times. In 2000 I was a broke pizza delivery boy and couldn’t afford to get in. In 2006, my tickets were printed. They obviously went unused.

I made the trip solo, but to my surprise I met a few other Mets fans at the game. They too booked the last minute adventure to witness game 7 history. We were all pulling for the Royals, but in the end it didn’t really matter much to any of us. I said to one of them “a dynasty type of team is fun… if it’s your team”. Nothing against the Giants, I just wanted it for the Royals and their fans. The underdogs in this fight. Unfortunately, like us.

Not that anyone cared to ask, but I didn’t say the words “The 7 Line” even once yesterday. It was a little weird actually. Since the end of 2009 I’ve never been to a game where I didn’t talk about the brand, shirts or outings even for a minute or two. I wasn’t there to promote a thing. I went to watch the game I love, in the colors I love and hopefully get a glimpse at our future.. When curious folk looked at my jersey, I said “I’m cheering with you guys tonight!”, which always got a smile and high five. WE NEED THIS IN QUEENS was the only message I repeated to myself all night.

I don’t need reminders of what it feels like to lose. The Mets have recorded that every season since 2009. What I do need are reminders of what it’s like to win. No matter the outcome, I was going to watch fans rejoice at the end of last nights final out. Observing the atmosphere in person made me jealous. That’s what I expected. It makes me want it even more. When it’s our time, we’re ready. The whole fan base has been ready. We can only watch the Mookie dribbler for so many years.

Kauffman Stadium was absolutely rocking. Looking around it had the upper deck at Shea kind of feel. Young and old, everyone stood and cheered from the National Anthem until at least the 3rd inning. A fan next to me was even on crutches and took it like a champ. I definitely had goose bumps watching everyone go berserk up there. Soaked it all in and pictured The 7 Line Army atmosphere we already have x 40.

In the end, Bumgarner tossed another MVP performance and droves of sad fans filed out after a one run loss. But, not before chanting LET’S GO ROYALS while the Giants celebrated on their turf. They had a great run. Their fans were appreciative. Really awesome to see.

I’m truly glad I made the trip. Gives me something to look forward to even more. I went as a Mets fan looking for a taste of the World Series atmosphere. Of course I now want the whole entree. Give us a new 1986, Mets. Please.
