100 Things Mets Fans Should KnowDo Before They Die Reviews

    I'm older than the Mets; my father had been a Giants fan and my mother a Dodger fan. When the Mets came into being there was no way they'd have let me become a fan of the other team with the funny "NY" on their caps. Reading this book was an absolute delight, reliving so many fond memories, and so many painful ones. I could place where I was at specific moments in my own life and how the Mets fit in. Unfortunately with books of this type once they are printed, the stats contained are set. I know many of them have changed, though I couldn't tell by how much. And so many great, and horrific, moments since publication are not included. But knowing there are others who bleed and ache as I do makes the anticipation of a new Mets season even more special.

    Although I can’t imagine anyone but a diehard Mets fan enjoying this book, it fills its niche well. Beyond a quibble about the title (the majority of the 100 items listed in this book are things to “know” with only a few things to “do” thrown in), I thoroughly savored this book and all of the nostalgia it conjured for me—from Tom Terrific to Doc to HoJo, Straw, Mookie, Nails, and—of course—the quintessential moment in Mets history: Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. The author himself is a devout fan, and the book is sprinkled with trivia and the recollections of other fans. This is pure delight for the Metropolitan faithful.

    This book took a lot longer than expected but it was a good book to read better for those fanatics though a good read for during the off season.
