A.G. Sulzberger on the dilemma faced by Mets fans:
Chuck Rose, the owner of the Pine Restaurant and Sports Bar near
Citi Field, said he was so disheartened that he could not even
choose between the Phillies and the Yankees. “I hope it rains
for 40 days and 40 nights,” he said, adding that he might
dedicate one television in the bar to a replaying of the 1986
World Series, when the Mets last won the championship.
As a Yankees fan, that’s how I felt about that ’86 Series.
