What are you a hundred?
COme on...I love loud music at games . And maybe it is the old wrestling fan in me creeping up but I love when a closer comes to the mound with a particular song. It adds a little flair to the game.
In my opinion the Mets and Yanks share the town so what goes on with one team does have an effect on the other. I am friends with too many Mets fans to count and a majority of them complain about being second class citizens in their own town. They want the respect for their team. Accuse me of East Coast bias or whatever, but this is a big deal in New York. Part of having your own identity as a team is not stealing things from the Yankees. Would it be OK for the Mets to play New York, New York after games? (I don't know a Met fan who would agree with that) And too many people here associate that song with Mariano.
