Misery loves company. Well, if you’re one of the many fans of the New York Jets that also root for the New York Mets, it’s been a rough stretch over the past few years. Both teams continue to produce lackluster and losing seasons with the Mets being the worse out of the two.
Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold is embracing life in the big apple and recently revealed which baseball team he roots for from the city that never sleeps. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Darnold, besides being a huge fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers, is all about the Mets as well if he had to pick his favorite baseball team of New York.
It won’t be long before Darnold likely starts to attend games at Citi Field or even throw a ceremonial first pitch. It’s no secret that the Mets haven’t been good at all with many believing that this current season is the lowest of lows. Either way, Darnold stands behind his decision.

In an article written by Nicholas Parco of the New York Daily News, here is what Darnold said about his allegiance to the Mets:
“I’m a Dodgers fan, so it’s kinda tough,” Darnold said in an NFL video about his new life in New York City. “But Mets, definitely Mets.”
Hopefully, once Darnold’s era under center eventually happens with the Jets, it’ll produce some winning results and give fans something to cheer about in the future. The Mets? Well, they’ll likely be taking a page out of the Jets playbook and likely to start a lengthy rebuilding process of their own.
The Jets selected Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. In his collegiate career at the University of Southern California, Darnold totaled 7,229 passing yards, 549 completions, 57 touchdowns, and 22 interceptions. Darnold was also extremely accurate in college as he completed 64.9 percent of all his passes.
