I can't complain about the Mets 2005 season. When all is said and done, the only disappointment was the team's failure to realize unrealistic expectations raised by their surprising hot streak -- they did better than expected, and hold out great promise for the future.
In honor of their season, and of my favorite Met's blog, Flushing Local, here are images from my journey to Shea Stadium to see the Mets beat the Braves on September 18.
The smooth ride of the Flushing Local.
Danger: Do not let people hit on you while they are leaning on doors!
Keep at least one step ahead of flames at all times.

Nicholas Cage, as seen from the Flushing Local. And there's that door-leaning flirting guy again!
The end of the ride -- anticipation builds to an almost unbearable pitch!
Subway exit, Shea Stadium. That's the whole sign: not "Baseball Stadium," not a directional arrow, just the single word "Baseball." Just in case any of us have forgotten why we made the trip, a handy reminder.
