Is it weird that I'm still mad at the Mets from 1986?

I was happy to watch the Royals win the World Series last night, but not because I have any rooting interest in them--the only reason I was pulling for KC was so the Mets would lose.

Being a bartender, I had several people ask me in the last couple weeks who I was cheering for.  Time and time again I answered, "I'm still mad at the Mets from 1986."  The last thing I wanted to see was those awful orange and blue uniforms jumping up and down in celebration again.

Yes, I realize it's probably crazy for me to say "again" since it was nearly three decades ago, but that's the way my brain works.  Should a 29-year-old sports memory really bother me, especially since the Red Sox have won three championships recently?

Who cares, the Mets suck.
