I've lived in New York since 2003 and spent many a windy nights in Shea watching the Phillies usually beat the Mets (I think I was something like 7-2 at Phils/Mets games I attended). I have to say that I've never had any problems at Shea with Mets fans and I always wear at least a Phils hat and usually a shirt to boot. But last night the animosity of Mets fans toward Phillies was amped up by maybe two or three times. Now I was sitting near a group of noisy Phils fans who at times had Phils chants going that cascaded through the stadium, but still. Even the friends I was with (both Mets fans) commented that fans were angrier than usual.
And I loved every minute of it.
The Phils winning a ring has resorted Mets fans to the following chants (and I'm not joking)
"Cheese Steaks Suck!"
"Mike Schmidt Sucks"
What I'm saying is that Mets fans are acting the way Philly fans used to act (bitter and obnoxious) and it has everything to do with the Phils WS.
Just thought I'd pass this along.
One really funny moment was this Mets fan yelling out a girl with a Phillies cap and she said "We're World Series champs, are in first place and our pitchings sucks."
