ABOUT US

Jason Fry and Greg Prince

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.

This is how The Log ends, with the final sixteen games in Shea Stadium history present and accounted for. My record in them was the same as the Mets': 8-8. Lifetime record in the 402 regular-season games I wound up attending: 218-184. You’ll note I wrote real small on 9/7, 9/9 and 9/10 to accommodate the determined quest to break 400. If you’re really observant, you’ll notice that on 9/27, I left myself just enough space in case I was going to have to squeeze a 28th game onto the final page, one that would have been played versus Milwaukee on 9/29/08. That became a non-concern shortly after 5:00 PM on 9/28/08.

There’s still some space available on what was to be The Log’s final postseason page. I think I’ll just leave that blank.
