I figure there have to be fellow sufferers here, demographically-speaking.

I have love-hated this team for 54 seasons, now. LFGM.

Yup. One of the few things I inherited from my Dad's Mom Gussie, who was a Mets fan from Day 1 in 1962 because the Brooklyn Dodgers had broken her heart. 1986 feels like a loooooooooong time ago now.

I've had a lot of happiness since 1986. Mostly because while I have been a fan since 1971, the late 70s permanently froze my Mets thermometer so I absolutely expect to lose every game.

I can top your pain. I'm a Mariners fan....
At least you all have 5 World Series appearances, as recent as 2015, to look back on, and 2 WS titles. The M's have 0 WS appearances. Yup, 0. And our most recent playoff appearance came after a 21 year drought.

Sigh.....

Frasier: So you're not in Seattle because of the Mariners?
Sam Malone: Believe me, no ballplayer is in Seattle because of the Mariners.

I'm old enough to consider the Mariners an expansion team (but young enough not to consider the Mets one). So by definition they can't have a chanpionship drought.

If we're playing Topper, my AL team has been the Mariners since expansion.

But shut your whore mouth; we're in first despite hitting even worse than the Mets.

This is the correct answer.

Mets, Padres, Nats, Rangers, Brewers -- not expansion.

Mariners, Blue Jays -- expansion.

Dbacks, Rockies, all of Florida -- fake.

This is actually a more painful season than most, despite the callouses of age.

6 losses when leading after 8 innings. No other team has more than 2.

The Pirates tend to blow their leads in the 7th and 8th.

Mets have a chance to lose on our third continent today!
