Best ever literary description of the New York Mets

From one of my favorite books, Saki's very Oscar Wildean The Unbearable Bassington:

"Comus," she said quietly and wearily, "you are an exact reversal of the legend of Pandora's Box. You have all the charm and advantages that a boy could want to help him on in the world, and behind it all there is the fatal damning gift of utter hopelessness."
