Some of us were around in the very beginning, watching Casey Stengel's Amazin' Mets lose 120 games and 7 consecutive losing seasons.
Some of us didn't come around until the Miracle happened in 1969.
Some grew up only knowing the 1973 Mets team among successful Mets teams.
A whole new generation came up with the rising promise of 1984 and 1985.
Some only came up for the Ultimate Reward of 1986.
I only remember how that post-season ended, and grew up with the aftermath.
Some remember 1988 but not 1986.
The next generation didn't experience a Mets playoff run until 1999 or maybe not until 2000.
Another generation got their first taste of success in 2006.
Some might only know the failures of 2007 and 2008.
This youngest generation of Mets fans doesn't even know that.
Whichever group you're in, enjoy the return to meaningful September baseball for the New York Mets!
