1986 Mets: A Year to Remember [Video]

Hey Mets fans, remember what it feels like to be proud of your team? With losing records every season since 2008, it may be hard, but there was a time when the Mets were great. In 1986, the classic Mets lineup including Darryl Strawberry, Lenny Dykstra, Gary Carter, Mookie Wilson, and Keith Hernandez beat the Boston Red Sox and won the World Series. It was the greatest moment in the lives of many Mets fans and it was all documented on glorious VHS.

If you were a kid in New Jersey or New York at the time, chances are you owned a copy of “1986 Mets: A Year to Remember,” encased in that hard plastic reserved for only the classiest of videos and featuring a photo of Keith Hernandez and his timeless coif. Relive those glory days with these clips that can’t even be ruined with the awfully dated sound of Duran Duran’s “Wild Boys” and Glenn Frey’s saxy “You Belong to the City.” You might even forget that their current record is 59-67. At least they’re ahead of the Phillies!
