ABOUT US

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.

It's Just a Popularity Contest (And We Wanna Be Popular)

siblurbbox

Page 109 of the current Sports Illustrated — Baseball Preview issue with Daisuke Matsuzaka on the cover — offers you, the FAFIF reader, a chance to express your choice for the fan site with “the best Mets info”. Since it doesn’t seem to be a sudden-death competition (the above blurb indicates each of us will be “featured” on SI‘s Mets site this season), then this is just for fun.

Then just for fun, vote for your favorite blog. Or, if we’re not it, vote for us. I can’t speak for Jason, but I’ve been waiting all my life just to get on the ballot in a meaningless, unscientific popularity contest.

Whatever the outcome, it’s pretty cool to have opened the mailbox, torn into my favorite magazine, turned to the Mets preview and seen our name pop out. The other ones, too. A blog victory, indeed.

(But seriously, vote for us. I have self-esteem issues.)

    I felt the same way! And I don't have nearly the same stake in this enterprise as Greg & Jason…

    You ought to because, quite frankly, this is as much about those who read and comment upon the blogs as much as those who write them. As with the Mets, we're all in this together.
