I am sitting in Starbucks drinking an iced coffee with whole milk and 4 splenda.
This guy, probably in his 40’s comes walking in wearing a New York Mets cap.
Here in East Lansing, Michigan in the 22 years I have been around, I have not seen one New York Mets hat. I’ve seen a few Yankees caps but Mets? Not so much.
“Yo, you a Mets fan?’ I ask him.
“Yeah I am.”
“Cool, you don’t see many Mets hats around here,” I reply.
“I’m from New York,” the Mets fan says.
“Which part?” I ask.
“The City, Manhattan.”
“Oh sweet, I’m from Brooklyn.”
Dude turned out to be cool. A friend of his showed up moments later, he was from Queens.
We chatted a bit.
Three boroughs covered in an East Lansing Starbucks…
