As a long-suffering Mets fan, the one about them made me winch

Baseball in Westeros is, of course, much different. The ball is a severed head.

Lets go Mets
I couldn't believe when I saw you are a Mets fan! I've been a fan of yours for many, many years... my librarian recommended Game of Thrones to me before it was released :)
My Dad took me to the first Mets home game when I was five years old. I've been suffering with them ever since. Biggest in-person thrill there was probably seeing Johan Santana pitch that shut out the 2nd to last day of the season in 2008. He was amazing... that stadium was rocking.

However, I have great news for you - I'm being relocated to Silicon Valley, so next year the new young pitchers will come up, we'll get a couple of new outfielders, Valdespin will start fielding as well as he hits pinch hit home runs, David will actually hit well from day one - AND still hit 30+ home runs, D'Arnaud will stay healthy all year and Harvey will win the Cy Young. Oh, and they'll open 4 more windows at the shake shack ;-)
(Now if I could only figure out how to get new owners.....)

Let me know if you ever want to catch a game! I still think it's a super nice stadium - when I took my 94 year old Dad, they let me park right outside the rotunda so he wouldn't have to walk far (I had just asked if I could drop him off). Pretty classy...
