All of us here at Rising Apple want to wish our readers a very Merry Christmas! You’re the reason we do what we do, and we value each and every one of you.
Aside from the gifts from friends and loved ones, let’s hope that we all receive the gift of exciting and successful Mets baseball in 2014! In the meantime, a new shortstop sliding down the chimney would be Amazin’. Matt Harvey making a quick recovery and returning next September to help the Mets make a playoff push would make for a nice stocking stuffer.
As far as next Christmas, what better gift to find under the tree than a brand new video that celebrates the 2014 World Champion New York Mets?
A Holiday note from Sam Maxwell:
Honestly, this Converted Mets Jew just wrote a bunch of stuff about what Christmas means to him. But outside of talking in the third person and getting you clicking on my personal Mets blog, I absolutely love this holiday, and what it contributes to this time of year. The warmth and comfort the atmosphere brings is one of my favorite things of life. Soon, we’ll be in 2014, and January 1st will start the REAL countdown to Pitchers and Catchers. Soak this time up, no matter what religion you are. It’s a fun feeling, this Christmas. And LET’S. GO. METS.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. My love for the Mets was passed down by my Grandfather. He was a die-hard Brooklyn Dodgers fan who adopted the Mets in '62. I'm a graduate of St. John's University, where I majored in English and minored in Philosophy. Aside from my passion for writing, I'm a drummer (since I was 3) and a pianist. I'm a Beatles fanatic, into politics, and also root for the football Giants, NY Rangers, and Knicks. I can be found on Twitter @D_Abriano.
