Off days are difficult for fans during the baseball season. We get conditioned to an evening routine and get a bit out of sorts when it is broken. After the way the season has been going, one would think Met fans would welcome a night without a game. Hell no. We love our team and want to see them perform. This spirit goes all the way back to 1962, when the Blob was just a tiny globule or Blobule, sitting on his father's lap, listening to the great Casey Stengel ramble on: "Metsies, Metsies, Metsies." Being a Met fan is in our DNA.
