I hear you. My dad was a Brooklyn Dodger fan before "dem bums" broke his heart in 1957. He became a Mets fan from day one. I was nine when the Mets debuted at the Polo Grounds in 1962. Every kid in my Bronx neighborhood was a Yankee fan. Their scratchy sounding transistor radios blaring Phil Rizzuto's "holy cow!" all over the street. I have to admit my only favorite Yankee at the time was Joe Pepitone.
#25 was a good 1st baseman.
I was pissed off in the 2000 World series when the Yankees beat Bobby V's Mets in five. Lost a few hundred$$$ to boot.
