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.

Here are three more additions to our soon to be released New Era line of caps. They won’t be available for the holiday season, but we’ll have them in stock with plenty of time before Spring Training.

UNITED WE CHEER!

May 16th 2015!

Army_5_16_15

 

TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THURSDAY NOVEMBER 6TH AT 7PM! 

Since so many fans were locked out of our Opening Day outing, we decided to go ahead and release our second home game in just a couple more weeks. We love how enthusiastic everyone was for the first game of the season. It would be great if EVERY game of the year had that same passion. Like we’ve said before, the more games you want… the more we’ll organize.

Opening Day was $105 and sold out in an hour, game 2 on May 16th will be almost half that price at $55. As usual ticket packages will go on sale at 7pm. We don’t think they’ll sell out in an hour… but you should probably set an alarm to be safe. We hope the process goes smoother and you’ll be able to come cheer with us all.

This is truly an amazin’ fan club and it’s an honor to root along side so many passionate Mets fans. UNITED WE CHEER!

Wrigley Renovations

WrigleyRenovations

 

Renovations are underway to the historic Wrigley Field. The above photo was taken today via the twitter account @WrigleyRenovate. Sad to see the old time feel of the ballpark become a thing of the past. The bleachers will be back, but a video scoreboard will be erected.

Glad we visited when we did. We experienced what baseball was like before all the new bells and whistles. Not quite sure how die hard Cubs fans feel today, but as a fan of baseball, it’s a shame to see the park become modernized.

Here’s a blast from our past. The first every road game with The 7 Line Army back in 2013.

 

Mejia!

The STOMP, The BACKBREAKER… whatever it’s called. We absolutely love Jenrry’s fire. It’s fun. It’s exciting. It brings life to the ballpark. Those are all things we should embrace. Sure, the opposing teams don’t like it. Why should they? They just lost.

We are so excited about this new Jenrry Mejia t-shirt. We teamed up with Mets fan and ever so talented artist Michael Borkowski on this one. We’ve worked with Michael a few times in the past and his work is always top notch. If his art looks familiar, there might be good reason. Since 1997 Michael has worked as a Storyboard Artist on many animated series including “Wolverine and the X-Men”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Dragon Tales”, “Scooby Doo” and many, many more. Follow Michael on TWITTER and check out his WEBSITE.

This shirt is now on deck. No set release date, but should be available in the not too distant future.

Help decide the shirt color! Blue isn’t an option due to his jersey color. We don’t want the graphic to get lost on the shirt. Orange pops the best, and is electric looking (like Mejia). Grey is usually a safe bet, but not many people like wearing grey in warm weather. LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. PLEASE HELP US OUT AND VOTE BELOW!

Mejia has since toned it back a little since this “fishing” finishing move, but closed the season with an exclamation point on September 28th. We’re looking forward to many more in 2015!

This is how we roll. We’re not more loyal than you or the next fan at Citi Field, but united we cheer the best we know how. There’s no leader, there’s no membership fee, you don’t have to be recruited. We’re all on this ride together. Our Army is for the fans, by the fans and anyone who is down with the Mets is welcomed with open arms. Fans always ask how they can become a part of our crew. It can’t be much simpler. Purchase through our website, we’ll mail you your event shirt and ticket, show up. That’s it. You’re in! By the end of your first game you’ll have a sea of new friends. It’s contagious, it’s fun, it’s exciting.

Watching the playoffs right now gets me jealous. Not just the game, but watching the fans. It’s depressing walking out of our stadium after game 162 when you won’t be back until April. The cheers fall to silence and our season is over. We’re all so ready to experience the October atmosphere again. We already rock center field like we’re back at Shea. Waving our hit towels and losing our voices all with huge smiles.

Going to games alone is a feeling I’m glad to forget. The 7 Line Army is a family and together we’ll hold dear a new year besides 1986. 2015? Who knows. Either way, we’ll be there.

Thanks for cheering with us.
