'Til I Collapse: A summary of my last 15 months of fan-dom

I am a fan of the New York Mets, New York Jets and Georgetown Hoyas. The last 15 months or so haven't been very kind to my 3 teams. A quick summary:

1) 2007 Mets: 14-14 Sept. record, epic collapse
2008 Mets: 13-12 Sept. record, semi-epic collapse

2) 2008 Jets: 8-3 record to 9-6 record; playoffs unlikely

3) 2007-2008 Hoyas: #2 seed in NCAA tournament - upset in 2nd round by Stephen Curry's #10 seed Davidson Wildcats

No real point to this post, just a chance to reflect on how disappointing my favorite teams have been of late. I guess it's not too bad, considering the 2006 Mets made the playoffs and 2006-2007 Hoyas made the Final Four. But still, what a brutal 15 month stretch.

This is why you should root for the Yankees and Giants. It's much more fun. I highly recommend it.
