Yes, I grew up in the 80s and it has been said on WFAN many many many times how this until the past 15 years or so was a National League town and how the Mets were the more popular team as they came into existence. Only time during the Mets existence until 1996, they weren't was the period of 77-82, after they traded Seaver and before Gooden and Strawberry came on.
