Rooting Against Bay?

For various reasons I don’t get to watch very many Mets games. And most of the games I do watch I watch alone. To help make the experience less lonely I often watch with my laptop open and monitor my Twitter feed during the game. The interaction with other fans helps make it feel as […]
