Meet the Mets

This week is Mets’ week with our podcast featuring the New York Mets being released on Friday, July 15th. Last week I went to Dodger Stadium to meet the Mets and sit behind home plate with my good friend Jeff Kornreich.

I first met Jeff as a freshman at Case Western Reserve University in August 1979.  Jeff was the first New York Met fan that I had ever met.  As a Cleveland native, I figured that all New Yorkers had to be passionate Yankee fans.  Jeff set me straight.

After graduating from Case, Jeff moved to Los Angeles and has never left.  A die hard Mets fan surrounded by Dodger Blue.  During our next podcast, you’ll hear my interview with Jeff about his beloved Mets.  It was great spending time with my friend as we watched the Mets lose to the Dodgers.

After the game, as we said good bye, I thought of that great Neil Diamond song as Jeff walked away from Dodger Stadium.

LA’s fine, sunshine most of the time
The feeling is laid back
Palm trees grow and the rents are low
But you know I keep thinking about
Making my way back

Well, I’m New York City born and raised
But nowadays, I’m lost between two shores
LA’s fine, but it ain’t home
New York’s home but it ain’t mine no more

Neil Diamond - New York City born and raised

You haven’t been to Fenway Park if you haven’t sung Sweet Caroline with the crowd during the bottom of the 8th.  In the first video below, sing with the crowd as they sing Sweet Caroline during the 8th inning of the 7th game of the 2007 ALCS.  After the song, the Red Sox scored 6 runs and advanced to the 2007 World Series.

The second video is the ultimate.  Neil Diamond, in concert at Fenway Park.  Only in America can a singer from Brooklyn be adored by Red Sox faithful.  What a country!

Our podcast featuring the Boston Red Sox will be released on Friday, April 23, 2010.
