Mets Fans Finally Have Something To Cheer About

Mets fans haven't had a lot to cheer about these days, what with their team sucking and Willie Randolph seemingly about to be fired every day.

So you could make the argument that the Mets fans who stuck around Shea during Saturday's rained out game finally got their money's worth when some of the Texas Rangers players decided to use the tarp as a slip 'n slide.

In fact, the crowd loved it so much, the started chanting "Let's Go Rangers!"

Also watch as the Rangers make one more run after Mets security corrals them all.

Even better, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels had no problem with it.
"It was spontaneous. Guys just blowing off some steam. No harm done, no damage to the field. When was the last time you heard Rangers chants in Queens?"
That's a damn good point. The answer would be never.

And hey, if I'm the Mets, at least the fans weren't chanting "Free Willie!" for at least one night. That's about the only victory the Mets can get these days anyway.

Not everyone thinks winning is the only thing involved in life. Get over yourself.
