Comebacks

So the Mets’ 2010 season ticket promo video has the theme of “We Believe in Comebacks”.

Um … after watching the collapses of 2007 and 2008 — two years that were strewn with lackluster finishes to games that were microcosms of the way those seasons finished — someone comes up with “comebacks” as the theme? Really?

Could the Mets possibly be any more out of touch with its fan base?

    I actually like this ad and I like how the “comeback” theme really emphasizes how frustrating 2007~2009 has been for Mets fans. In a sense calling for a comeback constitutes an admission by the team and the management that the performance of the past few seasons (especially 2009) has been unacceptable.

    I kinda like it. I mean it’s so corny it kind of frustrates me, but I don’t know. At least they’re trying to raise our spirits. I think frenchy sorta kills it at the end. A little over the top. Really I’m just hoping they WILL make a comeback.
