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.

Our Magic Number: Infinity

I suppose in some alternate universe we didn’t blow a seven-game lead with 17 to play. In this one, matters are otherwise. Congratulations Phillies.

    “If that’s the case, then we need to step up and meet the challenge…You know what, when it gets down to it, I like it that way. I don’t like the Phillies, I don’t like the Washington Nationals, I don’t like the Cardinals. Okay, so, if that’s the way you wanna be then let’s get it on, let’s play, that’s what baseball should be.”
