So this is something I started thinking about.
Yes this World Series is every Mets fans worst nightmare come to life. That has firmly been established. Many are watching it and are very much divided as to who they should root for.
There are those, however, that are choosing not to watch it at all. When I was asked if I would be watching it, I have stated I would not if it were not for my media class and school paper.
So I am really interested to know how many are choosing not to watch the series at all and how many actually care who wins.
Would Mets fans really consider boycotting the World Series?
You have to think about it this way. If you are a baseball fan, chances are you are going to watch the series. Baseball is baseball to you. If you’re like me, you watch the World Series whether the Mets are in it or not. Even if the Yankees are in it you watch it, whether you root for them or not.
New York is not the only hated baseball town. Philly does not get much love either from baseball fans outside of that stupid Philly Phanatic. For some reason, unbeknowest to me, people actually like that green monter (no offense to the Green Monster in Boston).
This is not just about the ultimate nightmare for Mets fans, this is about revenge for all of New York. This is about coming to our town and showing some respect. When have the Phillies ever done that? Never! Chase Utlely (I have another name for him, but I cherish my “G” rating) comes to our town and curses not just Mets fans out, but all of New York at Yankee Stadium last year.
Yes, there are a lot of Mets fans who choose not to watch this World Series. They are forming their own little boycott of the series. This series is too much to watch.
I hate both teams. I’ll be honest. Forget the Canons of Journalism that state I have to be impartial. This is my site. I hate both teams. I also hate horror films. I would take watching a horror film over watching this series. Trust me, that is saying a lot.
For those who are saying they will boycott, you know you are not really going to do it. You’ll be watching the games like the rest of us or at the very least you will take a peak. At some point, you will find yourself watching the series. Anybody who is saying they have no interest is lying.
