An Open Letter To The Mets

An Open Letter To The Mets

Guys. Come on.

The New York Mets

Dear Metropolitans,

For over a century, Cubs fans have watched year after year pass without a single World Series win. On Wednesday night, that changed for those fans forever. Generations have come and gone without a Cubs win. There's a beautiful story going around of a man whose father became a fan of the Cubs during World War II and passed away before the Cubs could win a World Series, so the son sat at his grave and listened to the Cubs win with him. There are children who will remember forever the day their parents said "The Curse was broken" and flew the W for all to see. The city of Chicago is living their best lives right now.

I really want to be happy for them, and I am. But I'm going to be super honest, all I'm thinking of is how much I want that for us. Mets, you've been my favorite team since I was born. There's a 3 foot tall Mr. Met Bobblehead in my room and a Mike Piazza cut out next to it. I learned how to make sorority letters so that I could make letters with your logo on them. I stayed up until 4 am in Ireland just to watch your games live. You are my team and I love you.

But guys, we gotta talk: what's wrong with you? The Cubs won and we barely made it to the playoffs? And then we got out the first game? What is happening? Come on guys! We made it so far last year. I was there the night we won a World Series game. We could have taken it all. We could have. And you lost it. You just lost it. And then this year, it's our 30 year anniversary, and what do you do? BLOW IT AGAIN!!! Look, I love baseball but I don't understand enough about stats to tell you exactly where you went wrong, you just did.

But here's some other issues I have with you: you hired Tim Tebow. I'm not even going to go into this but you know what you did. You let Jose Reyes come back even though he is an abuser and a horrible human being. You DIDN'T MAKE IT TO THE SERIES ON THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF OUR LAST WIN EVEN THOUGH YOU SAID THIS WAS YOUR YEAR. I could go on and on but I won't, I just want you to know how disappointed I am in you right now. Noah, I'm not dissapointed in you, I'm writing our wedding invitations as we speak, but the rest of you need to sit and think about what you've done and how to make it up to your fans next year.

Mets, I will bleed blue and orange until I die. I'll get married outside of Citi Field. But instead of us flying the W next year, could we raise the Big Apple? Instead of "Hey Chicago What Do You Say" could we sing "Meet the Mets"? Instead of blue and red, can it please just once in my lifetime be blue and orange? This is the Cubs' year, but next year, Mets? Can we please make it ours?

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
