New York’s Against-The-Odds Championship Year to Premiere Wednesday, July 3rd
NEW YORK, NY, June 3, 2019 – SNY announced today a new documentary, presented by Verizon Fios, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the New York Jets, Knicks and Mets championship year: 62,000:1 - Three Teams, One City, One Year. The 60-minute documentary, a portrait of New York’s improbable against-all-odds feat of three championships in one year, will premiere on SNY on Wednesday, July 3rd immediately following the Mets vs. Yankees post-game show.
In partnership with Hollywood producer Basil Iwanyk (John Wick, Sicario, The Town) and his company Thunder Road Films and directed by Pete Sillen (I am Secretly an Important Man), 62,000:1 tells the story of New York in 1969, a city divided and unraveled by war, riots and strikes held together by an improbable championship sports year. The film, written by Iwanyk, will dive into the universal and timeless theme of fandom, never giving up, and the power of a city rallying behind its teams to overcome great odds and achieve the unthinkable.
“Three teams from one city winning championships in one year is such a remarkable feat that it has only happened twice in the history of sports in our country,” said Steve Raab, President of SNY. “We felt compelled to not only commemorate the 50th Anniversary of New York’s Championship year – but also to share this remarkable piece of the city’s history in a contemporary way that is relevant to fans of all ages.”
62,000:1 - Three Teams, One City, One Year is anchored by in-depth and candid interviews with New York’s stars from those teams including Joe Namath, Bill Bradley, Walt "Clyde" Frazier, Cleon Jones, Jerry Koosman, and Ed Kranepool. The film also includes narrative from dozens of additional athletes, journalists and celebrity fans.
“As a life-long and obsessive fan of the Mets, Jets, and Knicks, it is one of the true highlights of my career to be entrusted to tell the story of these three teams and show the collective strength, devotion, and humor of the best fans in the best city in the world: New York,” added Basil Iwanyk.

It looks like the Mets felt like the season was spiraling out of control and had a full blown team meeting yesterday. Coincidently, the Mets won last nights game pretty handily. I wonder what was said in this meeting? Who was all there? Was BVW and Jeff there also? Did they tell Callaway to manage better? Did the Mets pitchers and bullpen get jumped on? Did they jump on Mickey? Who stepped up as team leader? There are so many questions. Maybe they should be superstitious and have a meeting every day.
