Mets Fans-Red Sox Fans-On Behavior- Fenway Park

Dear NY Mets Fans:

Many of your parents & grandparents, used to go to a small ballpark @ the corner of Bedford Avenue-Sullivan Place, near the Prospect Park BMT Station, called Ebbett's Field;
Fenway will be similar & you will experience what your parents & grandparents experienced, in Brooklyn over 50 Years Ago, so enjoy the experience;
Do NOT be as EXTREMELY-OBNOXIOUS, like the Yankees Fans, who shove it in everyone's face;
Do NOT start in about Bill Buckner; In fact he's NOT THE culprit in Game 6 of The 1986 World Series, as Calvin Schiraldi is a way much-bigger culprit, with a 13.50ERA, having only pitched 4 Innings in 3 Games & lost 2 Games; So cut the Crap about Buckner; Besides, many Red Sox Fans are coming to Shea Stadium, looking to watch the Mets, as Fenway Park is sold out; Do NOT turn them off; You're in their house, an historic & nice one; & The Party Life on Lansdowne Street is great, after or before the games.

Dear Members of Red Sox Nation in Boston & Vicinity:

There are variations of New York Sports Fans coming into Fenway Park;
There's the "New York Fan" or as I usually call them, "Casual Fan Ass-Hats"; They cheer for which way the wind is blowing & will know very little about the team they're cheering about(They sound like the majority of "October Arrivistas" in Yankee Stadium);
There are the NY Yankees Fans, who're as welcome as Hitler is in a Jewish Neighborhood;
Then there are variations in the Mets Fan Base;
The crew from the 1960s, tended to cheer on the Red Sox, as an AL Team, as this 1st wave is descended from Fandom from the Brooklyn Dodgers & NY Giants;
There are "The Expatriates", who follow the Mets Via Gameday Audio or WFAN in the Evenings, or via the MLB TV Package(Extra Innings), who make occassional trips to Shea Stadium & still remember when Upper Level was $1.30;
There are "The '80s Yuppies", who will never stop laughing about Bill Buckner, but know something about a certain Mets Reliever called Calvin Drew Schiraldi,chanting "Bring On Calvin Schiraldi", as he was frequently-booed at Shea Stadium, when he was a member of the '84 & '85 Mets;
& then, there are the Assholes who keep bringing up Bill Buckner, who as I remember, was a fine outfielder & 1st Baseman;
The "Assholes" who do this, may either be the "Casual Fan Ass Hats", or Yankees Fans, as this last group is to be avoided.

My 1st MLB Game was @ Shea Stadium, on 9/2/66 & my 40th Anniversary will be celebrated @ Fenway Park, on 9/2/06. Thank Goodness I won't be watching this series live, except on TV, as I hate watching "Exhibitions of Inebriation Followed By Black Eyes."
BTW:
Shea will be gone by 2009 & Fenway will still be there in 2012;
Thought that you'd like to know that!

Ron Darling, Mets Pitcher of the '86 Series, will be on NESN on Wednesday Night, when Pedro is pitching, replacing "The Great RemDawg" for 2 Innings:
It'll be funny watching Darling, whose Family is still in The Boston Area, working with Don Orsillo & having Wally The Green Monster in that little lawn chair of his;
I wonder if Jerry Remy will be on SNY with former PawSox Radio Man, Gary "It's Outta Here" Cohen?

It has been confirmed by SNY:
"The RemDawg" will be on SNY;
I hope that he brings "Wally".

Well said, but I'm used to that here. My open letter to Rudy is up on my blog. I think you'll get a laugh or 2. But you're there everyday, so I don't have to plug at all. And for that, I really am appreciative. You know that. Take care ML.

He'll lull you into thinking that he's a reliever;

A nice One, Peter!

As a Sox fan who grew up watching the horrible teams prior to '67, I identified very much with the Mets fans of those same years. Anyone who can trace their Mets lineage back to the 60's deserves respect from Boston fans, and vice-versa.

The Buckner Bashers, however, can kiss my white Irish arse.

Great stuff especially hiting the nail on the head about the "Ass Hats" fans that permiate NYC.

I love Fenway as I spend every summer on Cape Cod a trip to the Fens is always on the itinerary.

Thank you for the link of my site Ihave returned the favor.
