[DiComo] One additional plight for the Mets: their plane last night was late getting to Atlanta. Following a significant delay, they didn't arrive at their Pittsburgh hotel until around 4:30 a.m.

FPG_Matthew

We got Atlanta then Houston then Miami. You’re way good


gatemansgc

It would help if the nationals could get a few wins...


Ginger_Menace1

It just keeps getting worse.


Bindlestiff34

Or better, depending on your perspective.


Ginger_Menace1

I mean, I’m not mad about it. But it def keeps getting worse for them 🤣


mluna24

We need to figure out who cursed the Mets. It’s not possible for one team to suffer this much.


Leftfeet

At least this year nobody has caught foot and mouth disease or legionnaires yet.


SteakkNBacon

I’m just scared that Boob un-cursed them right before our series


PvtSherlockObvious

Yet.


Spiritual-Band-9781

The Mets itself is a curse that many of us subscribed to


handlit33

Honestly, I respect New Yorkers who have to pick between one of the most storied franchises in sports history and the Mets and choose the underdog.


fawningandconning

Growing up in Queens will do that to you, I was cursed from the first 15 minute drive we took from our old house to Shea in the 90s. Thanks a lot dad!


grubas

I'm so happy my family settled in The Bronx when we came to this country.


JaMDKinG

You realize those words have never been said before? I'll take being a Mets fan over having to live in the Bronx any day of the week.


grubas

Considering that Willets Point is an industrial hellscape without sewers, a population of 12 and is environmental toxic... Besides Da Bronx is lovely. Woodlawn's the 33rd county of Ireland, plantanos maduros everywhere, unfortunately it does contain the giant parking lot that is the Cross Bronx.


YourFavoriteBandSux

There are some really nice parts of the Bronx.


Engineer120989

Their uniforms are the most boring in all of baseball


WhyYouKickMyDog

Easy to pick the Yankess when they have those fly ass uniforms. It feels like you pick the Mets because you want to cheer for an under dog.


grubas

The orange, white, and blue is the NYC colors, it's just that the teams who get it also get cursed.


JoeAndAThird

knicks moment :(


JoeAndAThird

islanders moment :(


le_sweden

Maybe I'm stupid but I never noticed this, but makes total sense now. Could be cool if the giants come out with a jersey that replaces red with the orange


grubas

It's blue white and orange because of the Dutch/New Amsterdam. The Mets technically got Giants Orange and Dodger Blue as an homage to the two teams that left.


jihyoisgod

The Yankees home jerseys are classic. The greys are too but they're boring


grubas

The greys are the only ones most of us would let them mess around with. A road alt with a blue top could be ok. Home HAS to be pinstripes. And then whatever the hell our City Connect is going to be.


Engineer120989

Their uniforms are the most boring in all of baseball


Contende311

i'd rather my parents had just beat me instead of imparting this fandom.


Spiritual-Band-9781

Yep. I chose the underdog because who doesn't love an underdog? Too bad the underdog never gets the victory (at least in my lifetime)


redman8828

I’m not from New York, im the only baseball fan in my family, and I became a Mets fan bc my favorite shirt when I was 7 was a Mets basketball jersey type shirt my parents randomly got me. I didn’t even get that choice dang it (no regrets, frankly, but still)


see_mohn

I like the color blue.


mwall18

My tinfoil hat theory is that there was some rift in the space time continuum caused by the ball going under buckner’s glove. Since then the Mets have been cursed. The only way to undo the curse is to make the Buckner ball touch the Buckner glove. (I am insane because I’ve been watching this team for decades and I’m running out of hope and ideas)


JoeAndAThird

The only solution lies within the continuum transfunctioner, which will banish our opponents back to Hoboken


bdanders

ZOLTAN!!


brownmagician

Probably their football counter part the Jets?


mluna24

Good Lord, imagine being a fan of both these teams. Yikes.


lilbitspecial

I'm a Mets/Jets/Islanders fan. I'm depressed year round


magnusarin

I'd ask Nets or Knicks, but honestly... Does it matter?


lilbitspecial

Luckily I'm not a basketball fan too... Otherwise it would be Knicks.

link3945

Imagine us prior to 2021 (or 2018, if you count United): Braves had historic success in the 90s and 00s and only one title to show for it, the Hawks were barely a footnote, Falcons were the Falcons (still are), and the two major instate college teams had one national title between the two of them since the Carter administration (pretty sure? Title was 1980, would have been awarded early January, Reagan wouldn't have been inaugurated until 1/20/1981), and even that title was won by the less popular but clearly superior Institute.


Clobber420

Dang, sounds rough man, my city's teams wouldn't know, lollllll.

RAMBLIN' WRECK


Hummer77x

Roger McDowell spitting at Kramer did it I think


JoeAndAThird

that fucking magic loogie set us back forever


anubis2051

It's obvious -- Bill Buckner transferred the curse of the Bambino to the Mets


npa190

\*clears throat\*


grubas

This year I'd say blame The Knicks. But this is just lolmets.

I have a 30 minute presentation ready to prove that you are wrong. Accept the truth.

2_Kill_A_Chupacabraj

You'll always be wrong


Holden_Caulfiend_II

Regardless, I’m proud of the plane and pilots for getting everyone there safe


JWCIII96

Ya know Keith, what I’ve always wondered is with all these ball clubs flying around all season, wouldn’t you think there’d be a plane crash?


Wandering_Mallard

"Delay it again" - Delta attendants for this flight


handlit33

"And pick up your fucking popcorn."


_big_chill_

Poor guys. They still had to unpack their luggage from the plane, Sit in traffic and wash their uniforms.


sizzlinpapaya

Lmao. Imagining nimmo at the laundry machine jogging in place while it runs.


Drake31217

Weren't they told to take busses?


jmb-412

They're facing a team who just lost 2 of 3 to the fucking Athletics. They'll be fine


masonacj

The Braves lost 2 of 3 to the fucking Athletics last week lol.


jmb-412

Maybe the Athletics are just that team


MulhollandMaster121

Got that 🐩 in em.


do_you_know_doug

We swept the A's :(


DifficultSundae

I mean…


ZootedBeaver

punk_steel2024

Where's the flight? Shit. Line?

Hello Jays fan


ocKyal

They just did that though....and look what happened


jmb-412

I have a suspicion that the Braves are also better at baseball than the Pirates.

Source?


YourFavoriteBandSux

Ron Howard: The Mets would not, in fact, be fine.


jmb-412

They almost came back!


YourFavoriteBandSux

That's ... generous


scadams23

Man, when it rains, it really shits on the Mets.


Mrome777

This needs to be on a t-shirt


JoeAndAThird

when it’s sunny, it also shits on the Mets


Spiritual-Band-9781

Oh no! So we are going to lose by 5 today, instead of 3. The shame

Going2FastMPH

We’ve had the bucket list goal of going to every MLB stadium so we usually make a weekend trip out of it. Last year was Pittsburgh during that weekend. I was not ready for that.

Going2FastMPH

I mean I respect what other people are into. If you aren’t hurting anybody you do you. That said, seeing thousands of furries descending upon a city when you don’t expect it is still surprising.


Ketchup-Spider

I'm not much of a superstitious person, but this really does feel like a season where the baseball gods were like "fuck you in particular" to us. Every time something can go wrong for us; it does and does so horribly. This isn't even infuriating anymore; it's just soul crushing...


Useful-ldiot

Cohen was like "I'm going to buy a ring" and the baseball gods took that personally.


JoeAndAThird

alright you heard it here first NYM 4 - 30 PIT


clusterfucken

The pilot refused to take off his paper bag hat


liverdawg

All the Delta employees were watching replays of that Ozzie Albies HR and forgot to get the plane ready.


donut1970

So even the Mets plane is Mets-ing 🤣


Tashre

Maybe they'll do the "just show up and play" strategy, arriving half an hour before game time, warming up, and jumping right into it.


InstructionNo3616

I swear dicomo’s pfp smile width is directly correlated with how shitty this team is playing


t-poke

It took me a sec to figure out what was going on after reading the tweet, but the plane that took them from ATL to PIT was late getting to ATL. Delta flies the Mets. Delta didn’t have a spare plane in fucking Atlanta of all places?


jeb_the_hick

It's generally not in the interests of airlines to just have spare planes laying about ready to fly at a moments NOTICE. Regardless, the plane they flew, N652DL, was already at the airport since 5:30pm. It's more likely that the extended game meant that the original flight crew could no longer fly due to shift length restrictions. But I'm also guessing so I could be off the mark.


GOATmar_infante

One additional plight for the Mets: they are the Mets


ZXD-318

It's OK. Pittsburg just lost 2 of 3 against Oakland. At home.


Andy_La_Negra

Ah yes the Atlanta airport...................................................................


Kansascityroyals99

Oh no multi millionaires had their first class flight delayed. Oh the humanity


atlbravos21

You seem bitter. The season gotchu down?


ImaManCheetah

as we all know, millionaires don't need sleep

idk what your dessert preferences have to do with this, but cool!

burdsandwich

Oh noooo. Those poor guys!


cooljammer00

At least they made it. I remember a few years ago, the Yankees slept on the floor of the airport.
