TRUE METS FANS!

My little sister Brooklyn is my best Mets pal and also happens to be the most badass 11 year old on the planet. She comes with me to all the games and even takes notes on the games I miss when I go to class. For Christmas this year she made me a whole Mets scrapbook and wrote me this poem:

TRUE METS FANS
Me and You, Megan and Katie
We will always be true Met Fans,
even when we are eighty.
We are true Met fans!

You know why we are true fans?
We live and die with the Mets.
We twist our hands,
and a bad game truly upsets
you and me.
We are true Met fans!

We have so many superstitions
of seats and ramps.
And these are all ambitions
for us, (the Mets) to be champs.
We are true Met fans!

We cry over players
who have been traded, hurt...
we even fight with naysayers.
We Are True Met Fans!

We know all about the players lives-
where they live, who they are friends with,
even the names of their wives.
WE ARE TRUE MET FANS!

We watch every game
with as much interest.
Nothing is lame,
except Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen of course.
WE ARE TRUE MET FANS!

You make me cakes in orange and blue,
I write about the Mets as much as I can too.
You went to a game when you had the flu!
We are Mets fans, through and through.
WE ARE TRUE MET FANS!

Me and You, Megan and Katie
We will always be true Met Fans,
even when we are eighty.
WE ARE TRUE MET FANS!


It is maybe my favorite present of all time. Kid's crazy talented, she also did this unbelievable painting of Ebbets Field:
