A Quick Mets Note About a T Shirt

April 28, 2008

Some of the other shirts are cool, but this Son Heir shirt:

Son Heir You Gotta Believe Like It's 1986 Shirt

is factually misleading.

The “Ya Gotta Believe” quote came from Tug McGraw in 1973, probably making fun of owner Chairman M. Donald Grant’s pep talk to the Mets team that was 6th in the East Division standings at the time. Those Mets improved from 61-71 to a wildly mediocre 82-79, but knocked of the Cincinnati Reds’ Big Red Machine and played the Oakland A’s hard, losing in 7.

“Ya Gotta Believe” still applies, but the shirt is slants toward revising history.
