Let’s Watch Mets Fans Wrestle Each Other For a Wilmer Flores Home Run Ball (Video)
The New York Mets are off to a smoking hot start to the 2015 season, and it’s got the fans in Queens pretty jacked up.
In fact, Mets fans are so jacked up that, on Wednesday night, three middle-aged Mets fans wrestled each other trying to get their hands on a Wilmer Flores home run ball.
Wilmer who? Exactly.
Take a look:
Don’t get me wrong, the Mets had a nine-game winning streak going at the time, and that home run tied the game. It’s a fun and exciting time to be a Mets fan. (And yes, I get it. These guys are friends and they’re just horsing around. What are you, the hyperbole police?)
Nevertheless, my advice to Mets fans is this: calm the eff down. Last year the Brewers were 20-8 on May 1st and 51-33 on June 1st, but they finished in third place in the NL Central with a record of 82-80. Now they’re off to a 2-13 start this year.
I’m not saying this team is not for real. For all I know they’re the second coming of the ’69 Miracle Mets. All I’m saying is, beware of small sample sizes and regression to the mean. They’re notorious heartbreakers.
