The Pain of Being a Mets Lifer at the Jersey Shore

My parents have the unfortunate luck of being at the Jersey shore during this painful series against the Phillies. For those unfamiliar with the Jersey shore (a.k.a. the beach for non-NJ folks) it is a hot bed of Phillies' fans.

Here's the email I was sent this morning from my parents who own a home down the shore next to die-hard Phillie fans:
"I just started cutting out the eye-holes on the bag for my head. If nothing else, I may get a free Broom from [our Phillie fan neighbors]."

We all feel your pain, but at least I don't have to face Phillies' fans while on vacation this week.

Let's hope El Duque is what the doctor ordered so we can save face before heading to Atlanta.
