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.

Has it occurred to anybody that maybe we’re subject to the WFAN Curse?

When the Mets were last […]

Wrong Date, Pretty Boy

If you’re flipping through channels and come upon a rerun you haven’t watched in a long time, then it must be Flashback Friday at Faith and Fear in Flushing.

If you can’t start one season without restarting a previous season, then, it must be Flashback Friday at Faith and Fear in Flushing.

The consensus this winter — an entity at its ignominious end this morning no matter what the blasted thermometer says — has been that the Mets haven’t done quite enough. We started with […]
