The dilemma of the Mets fan

Brief and relatively inconsequential news of the month: two of my region's pro teams are shocking the sports world. Jaw drop, giant: after letting almost every high-profile player go to free agency and then starting the season with an eight-game losing streak, plus having their star player Evan Longoria on the disabled-list for a few weeks, the Rays are now atop the American League East. Jaw drop, minor: The Lightning are not only in the Eastern Conference finals, but they beat the Bruins 5-2 in Boston last night. The Bruins can still fulfill my prediction on another blog to crush the Lightning in 5, but they have to start working in earnest. 

I've never been a Mets fan, but I understand the basic problem: what happens when your team actually wins?? And I understand the feeling of what Chicago fans strong suspect: the Cubs will be one out away from sweeping the Yankees in the World Series in fall 2012 when the world ends.
