I don't even know why I'm writing about this. I'm so against giving this guy attention yet here I am, doing just that.
In the happy pile of Mets celebrating the no-hitter there was one non-Met. He was some idiot fan that ran on the field and joined the fun. Now, in many of the pictures and almost any video of the celebration he's there. Some moron in a Gary Carter jersey being, well, moronic. What's worse, because he's in a Carter jersey the New York Post decides to take the angle of making him like an angel, a hero sent down to represent Kid.
No. Just no.
I do not care how big of a fan you are portrayed as or you think you are. If you actually ruin the images of history you don't deserve to be anywhere near the team. Lucky for us, this guy won't be. Running onto the field can get you banned from said venue forever. It will also get you quite the fine and a possible year in jail. A large price once you prove your fandom.
It is all deserved. There is no excuse for ruining this moment. Every other fan in the stadium controlled themselves and stayed in the stands. It is not as if he could have waited longer for this moment than anybody else or gone through more heartbreak with this team than anybody else. Being caught up in the moment is no excuse.
This was simply beyond stupid. Now until the rest of forever certain images of Mets history will have this idiot/moron/other-word-I'm-not-allowed-to-use.
And it caused him to be locked up for his kid's first birthday. Good going, dude.
Let's Go Mets!
