An Apology Letter from the Titanic

It's not often that a team sends out three million apologies. But that's what Mets nation were greeted with this morning in their email boxes. Thanks to Lou Zer for passing this on. Read on:

Dear Mets Fan:

All of us at the Mets are bitterly disappointed in failing to achieve our collective goal of building upon last year's success. We did not meet our organization's expectations -- or yours. Everyone at Shea feels the same range of emotions as you -- our loyal fans -- and we know we have let you down. We wanted to thank you for your record-breaking support of our team this year.

Equally important, Ownership will continue its commitment in providing the resources necessary to field a championship team. Omar will be meeting with Ownership shortly to present his plan on addressing our shortcomings so that we can achieve our goal of winning championships in 2008 and beyond.

You deserve better results. Many thanks again for your record-breaking support.

3) he can't type
