Are you a Mets fan? I’m sorry, I phrased that question wrong. What I meant to ask, was do you love pain and suffering? Is your moral compass fucked in about 1,000 ways? Do you have 0 friends? Because according to people who like the Mets, those are the exact reasons why they endure the persistent and utter failure that has become synonymous with the phrase “New York Mets.” Don’t believe me?

#IamAMetsFanBecause My level of self-loathing hasn’t made me suicidal yet and I’m hoping the Mets push me over the edge to end my misery.
