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.

Up Against the Wall

You know what goes well with a wall full of Mets baseball cards? Connecticut’s own Ryder Chasin sure does. We’re happy to see the Faith and Fear numbers complement however many hundreds of cards he has up behind him and we wish him mazel tov! this Saturday as he celebrates his Bar Mitzvah. We hear it’s […]

Metsing Up The House

The Faith and Fear t-shirt has been seen this season at Fenway, at Rogers Centre, at what is now known as Pitco, even at the Roman Colosseum. But how about this: the first “official” FAFIF shirt sighting* at the New World Class Home of the New York Mets, Citi Field? And how about Dave Murray coming all the way […]

Talk About a Caesars Club

I wonder if anybody over there mutters, “It’s a dump, but […]

Wicked Game

The Faith and Fear t-shirt made its overdue New England debut a week ago courtesy of the KingmanFan clan, representing at the Fens in true blue and orange style. From left to right, that’s Sky himself, accompanied to Fenway by wife Lisa and daughter Lauren (their shirts are nice, too). Reports our longtime commenter, “Received […]

Also showing not a […]

Add a 17...for Innings

Bringing the Mets good luck — and the official FAFIF shirt a good look — is Della Ziegler, a.k.a. Mrs. Lonestar Mets, lovely wife of our Texas compadre in blogging Dan. Della and Dan attended last Saturday’s Mets-‘Stros marathon at Minute Maid Park, the one that went on and on and on and on until we beat […]
