Jason Fry and Greg Prince
Faith and Fear in Flushing made its debut on Feb. 16, 2005, the brainchild of two longtime friends and lifelong Met fans.

Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

In The Year 2009

Tell me about our new park. Please tell me something. Please tell me anything.

10. Mets' dugout certain to be roomier without unnecessary bat rack taking up space.

9. Home Run Apple replaced by the Single Raisin.

8. During games, DiamondVision will air complete DVD collection of The Sopranos, including bonus features, to satisfy fans' otherwise unfulfilled desire for lots of hitting.

7. With New York getting the 2012 Olympics, Torpid Baseball announced as an Olympic event. Early favorite for the gold plays right next door.

6. Philip Humber, cracking the low 80s since surgery, makes long-awaited Mets debut. Goes two and a third.

5. Contests much shorter with home team eliminating the formality of starting the bottom of each inning with fewer than two outs.

4. Julio Franco retirement rumors, though eventually proven false, spur fleeting visions of unseating Braves.

3. Drinking fountains dispense contents of unclaimed Uncle Jack's Steak Sauce prize packages.

2. Beltran terms quad “91, 92 percent. Could be 93 percent by August. I'll just keep playing on it and eventually it'll come around. I'm sure of it.”

1. To “suck” will be slang for doing really well the way “bad” means good in certain contexts. Thus, the Mets will no longer suck all that much.

    Yeah, we suck. No doubt about it. Every day a suckfest. We're the suckiest suckers who ever sucked. We teach sucking how to suck.
    Let's Go Mets!!! :-)
