It's funny. After O'Malley pulled his garbage, channel 9 in 1958, badly needing baseball to replace Dodger games, sent about 80 Phillies agames into New York so we could watch NL baseball. That only lasted one yhear so I could not develop an affections for the Phillies. When the ets joined the NL, it took me a little time to develop any affection for the Mets. I remember attending doubleheaders in both 1964 and 1965 at Shea rooting for the Dodgers. Probably took till 1968 with Gil Hodges managing the Mets to become a Mets fan.
