Why God is a Mets Fan.
It may seem bizarre to say that god is a Mets fan given that the last two they have suffered some of the worst late September meltdowns to cede the division and their entry into the playoffs, but it is true. I did my research and for the Mets to win the 1969 world series as a few season old expansion team was pretty amazing. God gave them Tom Seaver, the man had to be heaven sent. Then they returned in the 1980s to the be the team that everyone wanted to be, that team got another gift when the almighty pushed the ball between Bill Buckner's legs in game 6 of the 1986 world series. If a professional team is lucky then they have one miracle moment, like the miracle in the meadowlands, or the immaculate reception, but the Mets have had several. So god just may have been preoccupied the last couple seasons. Maybe he was fed up with Shea Stadium, and there were problems on Wall Street, the Yankees were also not in their usual cruise control. How much can one city ask for, even if it is New York?
