It's baseball season!
While we are aware that rooting for ANY sports team is more a labor of love than an indicator of intelligence, rooting for the New York Mets as been tougher than usual of late. A combination of mediocre baseball, financial troubles, and star players either leaving as free agents or failing to perform anywhere close to expections made last season one to forget.
Will this upcoming 50th anniversary of the New York Mets be any better?
The future is unclear, but we will say that if it's a disaster, it likely won't be the worst disaster ever. I mean, there have been some crazy bad disasters in history, and even the most diehard beaten-down Mets fan has to admit that nothing the Mets did last year was anywhere near as horrific as, say, the sinking of the Titanic.
So, with that in mind, we present our latest dumb slideshow: DISASTERS WORSE THAN THE NEW YORK METS.
