Hopelessly devoted

Arthur Kostendt | Thursday, April 28, 2011

As a Mets fan since my birth in 1991 in Bergen County, N.J., I’m quite familiar with their routine futility. I find myself in agreement with Laura Coletti’s remark that Mets-fanhood is a metaphor for life — with a minor rephrasing. Rooting for the Mets, I’ve noticed, is just like life. Although at times it can be promising and inspiring, in reality it is hopeless. No matter how many times you win, you will ultimately lose. And the world will laugh at your feeble, meaningless attempts.
