Go Mets


This is my website to chronicle my retirement dream of moving from California for six seven months and attending every New York Mets home game at Citi Field for the entire 2015 season. After nearly 3 years of planning, 2015 is/was my debut as a home town New York Mets fan.

Click on the 2015 World Series logo above for my thoughts after the season's end. Links on the right for 2016 include my return to NY for the Mets Fantasy camp reunion and an article that was featured in Mets Magazine sold at Citi Field during April/May of 2016.

I DID IT! I attended all 755 innings of all 81 Mets home games at Citi Field in 2015. I traveled to 8 Mets road games. My postseason was spent at Citi Field rooting during two NLDS games and two NLCS games. And I attended games 3, 4, and 5 of the WORLD SERIES in New York!

It has been a blast to be a New York Mets fan, cheering with other Mets fans, instead of being an outnumbered California Mets fan in other ballparks. Check out the FAQ's page for more info on this site, my plans, as well as my account of my 2015 Mets Fantasy Camp and my Road Trip across the USA. Click on any month above, then pick a date/opponent to see what I did during each home game. On the right of this page is a list of other things I did besides Mets home games.

My love for the New York Mets started on May 11, 1972. [long story here] That day Willie Mays was traded from the San Francisco Giants to the Mets for $100,000 dollars and a minor league pitcher. Mays did not contribute much production to the Mets but having arguably the greatest player of his generation on the team surely did not hurt. The Mets went on to win the National League pennant in 1973 and lost the World Series to the Oakland Athletics in what would be Willie Mays' last MLB games. I remain a Mets fan to this day. 1986 was the only year that my baseball team has ever won it all in baseball. Unfortunately I am a post-1969 Miracle Mets fan. I watch nearly every game on MLB.TV and have only missed a few since 2005.
