Life for both sexes – and I look at them, shouldering their way along the pavement – is arduous, difficult, a perpetual struggle. It calls for gigantic courage and strength. More than anything, perhaps, creatures of illusion that we are, it calls for confidence in oneself.

-Virginia Woolf

Pray4Mets, rooted in gender-neutrality, has borne joyful and unexpected gender-differentiated blooms and fruit.

Since our start in April 2015, many female spouses of Mets fans have become more interested in the game, the team, and the players than before, opening new horizons. Some express that their family relationships are enriched because there’s more to talk about (perhaps even to pray or meditate about together), strengthening the deeply personal social fabric.

Women’s filtering of the Mets experience has given new terms and insights, from metstrogen to metstropause (a stretch when the team isn’t winning), or replacing orange and blue with coral and indigo for a more subtle support of the team. These concepts are too far off the Mets success topic for some Pray4Mets readers. But, most women can find warm and welcome humor, smiles, and an uh-huh nod around this slightly different view of the playing field…a little extra joy to drop into this thing called life.

Vive la difference! Let’s put this type of power to work, and enjoy this space together.
