The NY Times has a story this morning about the Mets heading towards the NL playoffs and perhaps the World Series. They interview many fans including ex-Yankee lover/ stockbroker/ Brooklyn Heights resident Andrew Mayer.
NYT: Giving It Up for Mr. Met: Andrew Mayer, 50, a stockbroker who lives in Brooklyn Heights, said he favored the Yankees over the Mets when the two teams squared off in the 2000 World Series, but if the rivals meet in another Subway Series in October, he’ll be pulling for the team on the No. 7 line.
“The Yankees have kind of sold themselves to Satan and brought in bad-feeling people like Randy Johnson and Giambi,” Mr. Mayer said, referring to the surly 6-foot-10 pitcher and the first baseman Jason Giambi, who was implicated in a steroids scandal. “The Mets have now become a more feel-good team.”
