A little over a week ago, Mets fans basked in the glory of the Nationals losing, or as many put it, still never having won a playoff series. Now Mets fans get to bask in another sort of glory -- the Yankees losing to the Astros and not making it to another World Series.
Thank goodness, right? I know I couldn't take seeing one more tweet from Yankees fans about how they were the underdogs or how they've suffered for eight years. I've pretty much suffered my entire life by being a Mets fan, but I'm so sorry you guys have gone through this eight year "rough patch."
Naturally, Mets fans rejoiced as the Astros won Saturday night, and #MetsTwitter did not fail. As you can imagine, there were a lot of "thumbs up" tweets -- a not-so-subtle reaction to the Yankees losing, in response to their "thumbs down" rallying cry that held strong throughout the playoffs. Besides thumbs up tweets, here's what you may have missed -- just a glimpse at some of the tweets from Mets fans last night...

Hey, @Yankees, weren't you saying something about bending a knee? Start bending, and have a nice winter.- Rich Sparago (@Metfanrich) October 22, 2017
OK this one was before the game ended, but it's still my new favorite poem and probably is yours too...
Roses are red- Juanito (@JohnnyCurran7) October 22, 2017

I know the Mets had a down year but watching the Yankees blow this series and finally being eliminated from the playoffs was AMAZING- Amazin Mets (@los_mets) October 22, 2017
After the Mets' 2015 World Series loss, I didn't hear the end of it from Yankees fans, and I'm sure the majority of you can relate to that. Of course Mets fans are going to enjoy this Yankees loss now, and as you can see from the above, they're doing just that.
