If you’re like me, you have friends and family who are, through no fault of their own, Mets fans. They’ve had a bit of a rough year. Here are a few things you can say to them to cheer them up:

  • “Hey, you were in first place until your entire team got hurt.”
  • “That Jeff Francoeur — what an arm! Am I right?”
  • “While it’s true that no Met has ever thrown a no-hitter, at least Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden threw them for other teams.”
  • “Sure the new park is tough to hit in, but at least it isn’t a smelly dump like the old place.”
  • “You did finish ahead of the Nationals.”
  • “It’s good that Ed Kranepool is the Mets’ franchise leader in hits, otherwise nobody would remember him.”
  • “At least another New York team won the World Series.”
