After Saturday's 5-2 Dodgers win in Game 2 of the NLDS, one Mets fan was particularly affected by that whole "agony of defeat" thing. 

"Will In Queens" is currently enjoying his 15 minutes of fame after calling into Mike Francesa's WFAN show to vent and, yes, cry live on the radio.

On Monday, Will again called in to Francesa's show, but this time found himself on the verge of tears of joy, because Francesa invited the guy to sit next to him behind home plate for Game 3 at Citi Field.

The deafening silence that followed Francesa's invitation was priceless. Will -- a junior-high math teacher from Forest Hills - said he would wear his Matt Harvey jersey, take the 7 train over to meet Francesa and sit with him to cheer on the Mets.

And that's exactly what he did. The lifelong fan called the experience "a dream" and "once in a lifetime:"


The two thoroughly enjoyed the Mets' 13-7 win over the Dodgers (including Yoenis Cespedes' monster home run):

The Mets and Dodgers will play Game 4 at 8 p.m. ET on TBS.
