Think your squad of friends is wild? Prepare to compare resumes with these notorious groups of epic party-throwing, whole-bar-buying, royal-blood-having crews.
Crew Name: The ’86 Mets
Famous Members: Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Lenny Dykstra, Keith Hernandez
You know your team is baller-status when it’s less known for winning the World Series than it is for the awesome insanity of the clubhouse. Like every baseball team should, they recorded a rap song (that went double platinum), were involved in bench-clearing brawls that started with their 3rd baseman instead of their pitcher, and bought drinks for everybody – famously going to working-man’s pub Finn MacCool’s to buy rounds. This is the kind of team that could never exist in any league in the modern era. And that is sad.
Awesome Story: According to legendary sports writer Jeff Pearlman, the flight back to NYC from game 6 of the NLCS was the greatest time anyone's ever had on an airplane. There was beer can baseball. Food fights. Shortstop Rafael Santana merrily relieved himself on catcher Ed Hearn. Dudes skated on steaks strapped to their feet. And when they landed looking like beautiful messes? Darryl Strawberry dumped a bottle of champagne on Mayor Ed Koch’s head.
