First I’m a Yankee fan; detest the Red Sox Nation, and not a Mets supporter.
With that out of the way a friend and I decided to try to get tickets to the World Series, what the hell we live in the NYC metropolitan area. Using the ancient technology, land line phones we call the Ticketron, who was bought up by Ticketmaster, and got tickets to games 1 and 2. This was the series highlighted with the famous Game 6 Mookie Wilson hit thru Bill Buckner legs.
The Mets lost both games but won the Series. Game 1 Tim Teufel’s error in the 7th inning surrendered the only run in the game. Game 2 Dwight Gooden got hit for 6 runs in 5 innings and was the losing pitcher in his 1st World Series game.
The Mets beat the Red Sox in 7 games and have a ticker-tape parade up Broadway to City Hall, which the Yankees have done many more times.
