New Joke City

Here is something we can’t understand. If you were born in Long Island but have lived in Boynton Beach since the late ’70s, you are not a New Yorker. You are a Floridian. So by all means, wear your ugly New York Mets jersey to Land Shark Stadium (2267 Dan Marino Blvd, Miami Gardens) this Tuesday night at 7:10 and root for your extremely expensive fourth-place team (watch out for those surging Nats!), but don’t say that you’re a New Yorker. You’re not, and neither are you a serious baseball fan because, in choosing to leave your birth state, you’ve relegated yourself to nine live games a year, instead of 81. But you love New York, right? That’s why you live in Florida.

Tickets start at $12 for Florida Marlins fans; $12 plus severe cognitive dissonance for Mets fans. Call 877-MARLINS or visit
Tue., Aug. 25, 7:10 p.m.; Wed., Aug. 26, 7:10 p.m.; Thu., Aug. 27, 1:10 p.m., 2009
