The blog for Mets fans
who like to read


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.

Spoiler Alert

The days grow shorter, the Flashbacks grow longer. You already know the Mets won the 1999 National League Wild Card if you read this or lived through it. I’d maintain the suspense over the outcome of the NLDS that followed, but they give it away when you walk in the Bullpen Plaza.

All of which is to say, another Friday, another delayed Flashback. Keep tuning in for the continued story behind the story of October 1999. It’ll appear sooner than later, I promise.
