A singular, existential vision: that’s what pray4mets is about.
That the Mets have a successful season, inspiring fans with pride and with optimism for the 2016 season.
There is a wonderful subset of devoted — okay: rabid or near-rabid fans — who feel they can’t, by definition, pray. There is no one to whom they can pray. Maybe you (or a friend of yours) are hungry for the quirky pray4mets community and its vision, but face this core challenge. Please know: you, and your positive energy, are needed on this team.
In a cross-functional dinner conversation at Barbes on East 36th Street, my new friend David created the elegant strategy for overcoming this hurdle and gathering more folks into the pray4mets fold:
Mets pitcher Tom Seaver was canonized to baseball sainthood on January 7, 1992. He’s the only Hall of Famer wearing a Mets cap. To Mets fans, and to many others, he’s an icon. While still human, he is ‘up there.’
That’s it. So easy. Thank you, David.
For atheists, non-believers and those who find it difficult to pray, think about invoking the spirit of Tom Seaver to inspire the Mets toward success, and end the season with a feeling of pride. Go on, give it a try. As Minister Mookie Wilson said,
It can’t hurt.
