Just wanted to say a quick hello to the forum. I tried to start my own introduction thread but keep getting an error message. Either way, I just found the board today and decided to sign up. I'm a Mets fan from south Georgia, lol, not many of us down here. I look forward to meeting you guys and hopefully to some enlightening/fun Mets conversations. I know the general mood is gloom and doom but maybe just maybe they'll be something worth talking about this season.

It's umm...a challenge, to say the least. I've dealt with it for a while now so I've gotten most of the ridicule out of the way I think. Most people just let me be now. I was honestly hoping this season might give me a little bit of bragging rights, guess we'll have to wait and see though.

Thanks for the welcome.

I'm afraid you're right on the $ with that one. However, I'm also afraid that the Braves are a lot closer to being good again than we are biggrin.gif
