For a month I’ve been dreaming of the following. Reyes and Wright versus Jeter and A-Rod. Delgado versus Abreu. Randy Johnson versus Tom Glavine. Mariano Rivera versus Billy Wagner. The world does not want a subway series. Met’s fans want vengeance for 2000. However, there is a problem. My grandfather loved the Giants. My grandmother, the Dodgers. I love the Mets. My ladyfriend’s house is Yankee territory. ~Michael Brendan Dougherty

If love can transcend the mutual hatreds of the teams of the Bronx and Queens and their respective loyalists, it can overcome anything.  Except perhaps the divide between Cubs and Sox fans.  Some divisions probably just run too deep.  Here’s wishing Michael and his ladyfriend a happy reunion, complete with numerous Mets victories.
