The Resume

Why he might be annoying:

    Two words: Mr. Met.
    They will always live in the shadow of fellow New York team, the Yankees.
    They lost their first official game, 11-4 against the St. Louis Cardinals, which was just a sign of things to come.
    The same year, they lost another 119 games, making it the worst season by a team in MLB history.
    They were last in the National League East division in 2003, even though having one of the highest payrolls in all of baseball.
    JFK and LaGuardia Airports are so close to Shea Stadium that, at times, they have airplanes flying directly over the stadium.
    With just 17 games left to play and a 7 game lead, they fell out of first place (2007),

Why he might not be annoying:

    Jason Alexander's Seinfeld character, George Costanza, tried to get himself fired from the New York Yankees organization after being offered a job by his favorite team, the Mets.
    They won a special lottery for the rights to pitcher Tom 'The Franchise' Seaver.
    They were underdogs in the 1969 World Series against the Baltimore Orioles and ended up beating them in 5 games.
    The Curse of the Bambino 'helped' them win game 6 of the 1986 World Series with the Mookie Wilson/Bill Buckner play.
    They won their first World Series 7 years after their expansion season.
    After September 11, they started wearing FDNY and NYPD hats than their regular New York Mets hats.
    They have a great rivalry with the New York Yankees, which is referred to as the 'Subway Series.'
