Thank You Seth MacFarlane

Last night on Family Guy, after having his Halloween candy stolen from him, little Stewie Griffin compared the whole experience to being a Mets fan.  Stewie, we know your pain all too well.  Thank you Seth MacFarlane and Co. for so perfectly summing up a lifetime of frustration in 18 hilarious seconds.

Note: I find myself watching it over and over again just for that hat toss at the end.  What Mets fan hasn't done that move repeatedly over the last 10 years.

  1. Hmmm, at least the Mets have won something. My team - Seattle Mariners - haven't won an ALCS, let alone a World Series. Ever. :(

  2. Their only highlight was beating the Yankees in '95 to go to the ALCS series. :)

  4. the mets are in the nl which means they would never play the yankees in an alds to advance to the alcs. they can only play the yankees in the world series... which happened in 2000

  5. @jaymc: amen! Our poor Mariners can't even get made fun of in cartoons -- they've never done anything to warrant that kind of attention. Ah, Seattle baseball.

    What's more, we have to go hang out on other teams' fan sites, 'cause the Mariners' fan site is, ...uh... do we even have a fan site?

    At least this town has a good soccer team. Or had, last year. I guess it beats staying at home and knitting or something.

  7. I loved this clip when it first aired. I still find it hilarious I just wish so many Mets fans weren't so quick to jump off a bridge after one opening day loss.

  8. @jaymc I feel you. Especially with those great late nineties teams that the M's had. I really thought they would get one.

  10. I worked in a Recording Studio in NYC during the 70's & 80's. Every year the owner of the studio took all personnel to a Mets game footing the bill. I'll never know why he picked the Mets over the Yankees, not that I cared but I leaned towards the Yankees in Reggie Jackson's day. But the Mets did alright in the 80's. Bottom line nobody really cared one way or the other. We just had a good time to a free major league game, beer and hot dogs. Although the Yankees did have $1 dollar Yankee Joints for the people who sat in the cheap seats i.e. the bleachers.

  13. I've thankfully been able to see the A's win championships, it's what keeps me from being suicidal since I'm a diehard Golden State Warriors fan. Ugh.

  14. The Muts are an absolute joke and I couldn't be happier about it....I'm just waiting for them to hold the yard sale outside of Citi Field to help pay off the millions of dollars they profited from Madoff's scheme, not to mention help them cover Bobby Bonilla's contract through 2029. Good luck beating the Phillies and their Rotation in 2011. I'm gonna go out on a limb and predict the season series will be 14 to 4 in favor of the Phils.

  15. the other teams mentioned... seattle, pirates...are bad... but they're not a joke or a punchline.

    What other team spends SO much and is always so bad. Bad moves. bad contracts. Bad management.
