Take That New York Mets! (Pic)
You know things have just about hit rock bottom for your club when they become the punchline for a local storage company’s advertising campaign.
Manhattan Mini Storage has purchased ad space on New York City subways and they are filling that space with a poster that asks riders, “Why leave a city that has six professional sports teams, and also the Mets?”
Good question! Here is another question we’d like to ask Manhattan Mini Storage: It is obvious that five of the teams included are the Knicks, Jets, Giants, Rangers and Yankees. Would the sixth be the WNBA’s Liberty, the MLS’s Red Bulls, or the NHL’s Islanders?
According to their standards, it doesn’t appear as though the Big Apple even has a sixth, unless you include the Islanders of the early 80s’.
