Growing up in NY I was lucky enough to experience all of my favorite teams reaching the pinnacle of their sport... Islanders, Mets and Giants. The toughest loss for me was when the Islaners were knocked out of the playoffs in 1984. I was 15 years old and my father had season tickets for the Isles. from the time I was 3, he took me to almost every game. I cried at the breakfast table the next morning. My mother made fun of me, but my father defended me. He told me the story of how he cried when the Dodgers would lose to the Yankees back in the 50's. Surprisingly enough, although he was a Brooklyn Dodger fan, and later a Mets fan, he also supports the Yankees - as long as they are not playing the Mets! "They're still a New York team!"
I am currently living out a childhood dream - writing a book with my favorite player from the 1977 Mets. I never would have guessed it when I was 8 years old watching him play... But that's the magic of sports... You never know what will happen next! It Ain't Over Til It's Over! And it's an AMAZIN' journey!
