Getting Social with the #NYMets
I am a New York Mets fan.
It’s a lot easier to say that right now than it has been for a long time. When the Mets clinched the NL East on September 26th I popped open a bottle of champagne and celebrated with the players. Well, not exactly. They were in the clubhouse in Cincinnati and I was in my living room with my wife and kids watching them on TV, but that was close enough for me. It had been 9 years, 1 marriage, 3 kids, and a lot of losing since they had last won the division, so I felt the occasion warranted a small celebration on my part.
Although it looks like the Mets and their young pitching staff are set up to win for a number of years, you just never know (they are the Mets after all), so I figured I’d document the season with some social media analysis and a blog.
I pulled down the posts and comments on the New York Mets’ Facebook page for the entire season, starting on Opening Day (4/6/2015) and ending on the last day of the regular season (10/4/2015). Take a look at the image here.
