Props for Amazin' Avenue

[Disclaimer: I have nothing against the Mets, and I love Met fans after reading AA]

I came over to Amazin' Avenue in the preseason when the Jason Bay rumours were coming from everywhere. I thought I'd come over here and see, and all I can say is that I was hooked. AA has an amazing mixture or humour, off-beat conversations and sabermetrics, as well as one of the best communities I've seen on the internets. While I haven't seen a Met game in 10 years (the time difference here means a 7.05 ET start time is 4.05 a.m. for me, and I have enough trouble following my own team), I've come here nearly every day and read some fantastic gamethreads and recaps, musings, and some amazing analysis. At first I was fascinated by how utterly hilarious everyone could be in a losing season, and I still love how everyone over here can diss the team without being overly negative.

I know I probably can't add much to the conversations (except maybe the off-topic threads) since most of my Met knowledge comes from here anyway, but I really feel like I want to know what happens with the Mets every day. I think the two things that sealed it for me are the Amazin' Avenue annual, and the Dickey Photoshop contest. Both were ridiculously good.

So, here's some thanks and props from a Yankee fan for providing a great blog. Kudos to you all.
