A wise philosopher once said "tis better to have had a 7 game lead and lost on the last day of the season, than to have ever led at all". And for New York Mets fans, that couldn't be more true. They officially sent all their fans into deep depression's today by sending the Phillies into the playoffs, by losing today.
Which in a sense, makes me feel a little bit better as a Jays fan. If the Blue Jays had a 7 game lead mid-September, only to lose out on the last game of the season, I might just overdose on Flintstone Vitamins - only to awake 3 days later, and have my recommended weekly dose of Vitamin C and A.
So case in point, I'm glad I'm not a New York Mets fan - because they at least HAD a chance to win. I'm so sorry.
Year in review soon to come ...
