Anthony Weiner may have been at a game, but that doesn't make him a fan. He's a politician, he'll change hats. He just ragged on the Mets last Thursday on the Daily Show.

Dave Singer said...

Good point about "politicians"...not so sure ragging on the Mets disqualifies him though; if that were the case, half the fan base would lose their Mets fan card.

Mike D. said...

I'm pretty sure Weiner's ragging on the Mets was just to get under Jon Stewart's skin. They seem to know each other from somewhere... that interview was more like the ones he does with his old comedy pals than with politicos.

Not sure if the following counts, but what about Kurt Russell?

Even though he was wearing a Yankees hat for Kate Hudson's ties to A-Rod at the WS, Kurt was a consistent Mets fan when Matt Franco was playing for us.

Em... Ray Romano may hail from LI... but he's no Met fan.

Matthew Morrisson of Broadway and "Glee" fame, apparently...

... and, somewhat less proudly, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi of MTV reality phenomenon/grad course in Fist Pumping Like a Champ "Jersey Shore."

Snookie goes into our pool of "Chicks that aren't hot that dig the Mets".

And Ray Romano is a Mets fan...he's one of the "I like both teams" guys.

How the heck has Billy Joel been omitted?
