Unfortunately, I am a Met Fan... When Bill Maher bought into the Mets this year, I thought,"He can take on the Conservatives but does he really have the intestinal fortitude to sit through a Met season as a owner...

Maybe Seinfeld and Stewart who are also life long Met fans can get him through his new life sentence.

The Mets always have the best announcers for the games...They call a game like peeling a banana. Watch out for the skin Maher. Let's Go Mets!
