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.

Shea Goodbye from the Picnic Area

If you'd like to emulate a ball hit by Carlos Delgado and land over the fence at Shea Stadium, Matt Silverman's got your final chance. The co-author of Mets By The Numbers and author of 100 Things Mets Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die has organized a get-together of Mets fans in the Picnic Area for this Wednesday's evening's game against the Cubs. Its one final chance to see a game from where relatively few ever get to see one. Buffet and nonalcoholic beverages are included. A handful of tickets remain for this unique vantage point to one of the last games in Shea Stadium history, to say nothing of one of this season's most crucial. Plus I'll be there, but don't let that stop you. Ticket price is $70, which covers the game, all you can eat, all you can drink (beer is extra), the Picnic Area experience (heartily endorsed here) and a serious helping of committed, devoted Mets fans.

For more information, check out Met Silverman and, like the Mets this week, act now. E-mail Matt with any and all questions.

    I can certainly vouch for the Picnic Area Experience: I spent almost the entire '06 playoffs out there and had the blast of my life.
