10 Reasons Why Mets Fans Are The Best

Growing up I can remember my dad and mom yelling and jumping to joy watching baseball games. They fell in love with the game, and more importantly fell in love with the Mets. It is as if blue and orange run through my blood. I grew to love the Mets on my own and take much pride in being a fan of them. Everyone has their favorite sports teams, but let's be real the Mets are the best, and these are just a few reasons why they are.

1. We have all the superheroes on our side.

We have Captain America (David Wright), The Dark Knight (Matt Harvey), Thor (Noah Syndergaard), and The Hulk (Lucas Duda).

2. Familia

Jeurys Familia was the top closer in the MLB for the year of 2016. He had the most saves in all the league with 51 saves and the year before he had 43. You can say we owe that man our life for how many games he got us out of with the W.

3. Mr. Met and Mrs. Met

It is one thing to have one mascot, but to have two that are such a perfect pair for each other, what can be better than that?

4. We now sell cookie dough at CitiField.

Let's be real, every kid, dad, mom, grandma and grandpa (everyone) loves cookie dough, and now we get to eat it while watching our favorite people play.

5. Resiliency

No matter what challenge the world is facing the Mets always makes it a point to show everyone it is all going to be okay. From something small like constant injuries to something huge like 9/11, the Mets always pull through putting their best foot forward in every chaotic event that gets thrown at them.

6. We have Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jimmy Kimmel.

Number 1 comedians, number 1 in our hearts.

7. The 7 Line

The 7 Line Army is a group of die heart Mets fans who travels around the United States to watch the Mets play. Their goal is to hit every stadium before returning to one that they already have been at. Being a part of the 7 Line Army even just for a game is life changing for any Mets fan.

8. Keith Hernandez

Being our first captain ever in Mets franchise history, you can assume that Keith Hernandez is kind of a big deal. He was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame in 1997 and became the voice of the Mets in 2006. He began broadcasting our games then and we couldn't imagine having anyone else voice them to this day.

9. Always being the underdog.

We might struggle from time from time, but that never stops us. We always put our best foot forward no matter who we are being put up against. No team, no player can ever bring us down.

10. Community

There is nothing better than sitting at a game next to a stranger acting as if they are your best friend. We are one big family that cares about these boys so much that it doesn't matter who you are. As long as you are wearing blue and orange you will always have a friend in me.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
