I don’t know who this guy is, but I’ve seen him repeatedly since last September 30. This Reuters photo was used over and over last fall to illustrate the state of the Mets fan in the wake of the end of the 2007 season. At the risk of trivializing tragedy, he is our napalm girl, our Kent State. He represents where we were at one of the darkest times in our history, in our souls.
Oh, the humanity.
Dear Mets: Make this guy smile in 2008. Make us all smile. At the very least, don’t leave us like this again, OK?
