Mr. Met uses Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt split to brag about Mrs. Met


The entertainment world was left reeling by the news Tuesday that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are headed for divorce. Mr. Met, perhaps recognizing how much it takes to keep a high-profile romance afloat, touted how he and Mrs. Met have stayed together despite being under the media’s white-hot spotlight.

Granted, Mr. and Mrs. Met hardly garnered the kind of unwelcome and prying attention devoted to “Brangelina,” but being two baseball-headed New York celebrities obviously comes with its own unique set of challenges. And somehow, the Mets couple has kept it together through it all.

Mrs. Met earlier this month took to Twitter to express her devotion to her “hubby.”

But as noted by one New York newspaper recently, when Mr. Met was reintroduced by the team in 1994 after an extended absence, he was a bachelor. And Mrs. Met didn’t return to the public eye until 2013. What of those 19 missing years, Mr. Met? What say you?

Questions concerning timelines and the like notwithstanding, Mr. and Mrs. Met nevertheless have earned a well-deserved kudos. Somehow, through all their trials and tribulations, their commitment and loyalty to one another have managed to give hope to countless couples.

Just not Brad and Angelina, apparently.
