"The Mets' most outspoken fans travel to Philadelphia, not necessarily to watch their favorite players, but to talk about them at decibels that would be prohibited at most stadiums. They sit in the back of the concourse in Section 125, at a makeshift studio called Broadcast Dream, some to vent their frustrations and others to voice their hope.

For $10, anyone at Citizens Bank Park can broadcast a half-inning of a game and receive a CD of the occasion to play and replay on the way home. Most Philadelphians tired of the ear-splitting novelty in the stadium's first season. Mets fans, however, comprise something of a cult following. Every time the Mets make this trip down the New Jersey Turnpike, their fans come along for some baseball karaoke."
