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.

It Will Keep On Risin'

The September 18 installment of Flashback Friday: I Saw The Decade End will be presented as a special Monday Tuesday edition on September 21 22 in deference to my being too obsessed with disappointing seasons to think clearly about one of the few generally satisfying ones still writing it.

You may now return to your demoralizing albeit fascinating debate… enjoying this fantastic season that’s still not over.

    Say, that's an attractive t-shirt!
    I always loved how this shirt doesn't designate “Wild Card” (or even “Wild Card and Division Series Winners”), simply “1999 Major League Baseball Playoffs!” It's the exclamation point that thrills me, I think. “Playoffs!” sums up how we were all feeling 10 years ago on October 4th.

    Wow, was this a mlb-sanctioned shirt, or did you pick it up out in the parking lot? Because, how did I not get one? That is GREAT!
