The New York Mets franchise throughout history always seems to give their fans more heartbreak than jubilation. Albeit the multiple championships and multiple playoff runs the team always seems to find a way to let you down no matter how much you are prepared for it.
When each Mets fan thinks about the Mets in terms of heartbreak, they can recall specific moments of games that stand out in their mind. For me, when I think of the times, I have experienced heartbreak with the Mets I can think of three very specific games that perfectly define such an emotion.
Some may feel that the right emotion is sadness not heartbreak but Mets fans are so passionate that when the team fails it always seems to happen when we all finally start to believe things will turn around but instead we get our hearts broken.
Mets fans are so passionate and always want their team to be as good as can be. So, when the team is successful the fans are just brimming with excitement but when the team lets us down it is truly a heartbreak because we as fans so badly want our team to be good, and just when they are about to show us how good they can be the other shoe drops and it all comes crashing down.
There are so many games or moments from my lifetime that could be talked about in the realm of heartbroken but the following three games really stand out in my memory.
