Comedian Jim Breuer Talks Mets Fandom, Missing David Wright's Final Game

September 19, 2018

Unfortunately, loving things can bring you pain. Comedian/author/podcaster/lover of heavy metal -- Jim Breuer loves the Mets. (If you too are a fan, you know where I'm going with this.) 

Jim hilariously rants and raves about the team's failures and the heartache they bring him in his stand up, but frankly, I'm glad the Mets suck. There's nothing funny about winning.

As the Mets' season closes out and star pitcher David Wright returns for what will likely be the final game of his career, I asked him how he feels about the impending retirement of one of the Mets' fall-time fan favorites. 

Jim says, he'll be in San Francisco for the game and will have to watch on his iPad. "Sorry David," Jim says in all seriousness, "my kids gotta eat!"

Although Jim says he will be sad to miss the game, his fondest memory of Wright is the fist-pump he did in 2015 against the Nationals. "Just his passion -- I was so excited for him," says Jim. "That's the moment I'm gonna go out with. It was friggin' awesome."
