When it comes to the Mets, I’m not usually one to dwell on the past. Especially the 1986 season. The fact that it’s been so long since the Mets’ last championship is becoming less of a fond memory, and more of an embarrassment with each passing year.
That said, it’s a milestone worth acknowledging. It is, after all, the one (and still only, to this date) time that my brother and I ever hugged.
Happy 26th anniversary, 1986 Mets. I hope we get to see one of these celebrations again soon – at least sometime within the next 26 years.
