Greg Prince and Jason Fry
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.

Hate is for Hebner

I've known two people who told me they had an older relative tell them, “Hate is for Hitler.” In other words, don't throw that particular four-letter word around so much. Show some perspective. Keep your feelings from getting ugly. That's very sound, very wise advice.

Unless of course you're a Mets fan.

One of our coolest blolleagues is Metsradamus, a seer of all things who saw this would be a good week to take off. But Metsradamus did not leave us hanging. In fact, he left us hating. Go check out his ballot for the 2005 Hall of Hate. Mind you, this is only the latest bunch of bastards on his/our dance card. The comments section explains who's already in.

I hope it's not too late to write in Antonio Perez.

    How can anyone hate Jim Duquette? What did I miss?
    Anyway, G, as you well know… my own hate list is way too long and illustrious to post. Even the 2005 version, which sets aside the obvious Jeter/Chipper types and finally gives well-earned pride of place to perennial “favorites” like Geoff F'ing Jenkins and his demonic Brewer compatriots. They've achieved the impossible this year: catapulted over the Yankees, Expos and Braves for Most Evil Team of 2005.
