I cannot agree with this last statement more. I think it was already established that Peter was a Mets fan (I know Ben Grimm is). Plus the Mets are more the Working Man's team, too. For that reason alone, I cannot re-read this issue.Glad to hear the love for Paul Jenkins's run on Peter Parker: Spider-Man. I've mentioned it on these forums before, but issue #33, "Maybe Next Year..." is my favorite single issue comics story of all time. It's about dads and baseball and tradition, and came out at a time when my own baseball-loving dad was dealing with cancer and not expected to make it (though, miraculously, he did), so it really hit all the right buttons with me. And though we're Red Sox fans in our family, and this story involves the Mets, well, fans of the hard luck teams have a lot more in common then we all like to believe.
Also, this story is the reason it makes me furious when they depict Peter as liking the Yankees. Come on, CLEARLY he'd be a Mets fan... they have "the Parker luck" as much as he does. Spidey's the Charlie Brown of New York superheroics, and the Mets (historically) are the Charlie Browns of New York baseball!
When they start making out, WE ALL winhere's the real question...
Alfred or Aunt Mae?
