I’d like to host a Mets’ Chat Room tonight at 6 p.m., to kick off the new Citi Field and the new season. I am trying to keep the blog up with limited resources and your input is greatly appreciated and needed. Please join me. Thanks.
MetsGrrl did what I should have done yesterday, which is check out the St. John’s game at Citi Field. She did a marvelous job, both in text and photos, in covering the Citi Field dress rehearsal.
The Mets will have two exhibition games this weekend against Boston, hit the road, then come back April 13 for the opener against San Diego. In the interim, please check out MetsGrrl for a taste of what is to come.
The Mets will begin a series of tours of Citi Field beginning tomorrow for those still wanting to purchase season tickets. Register at Mets.com or call 718-507-TIXX.
Tickets for the April 3-4 exhibition games against the Red Sox go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m.
It’s their money, so Citi Corp., can do what it wants with it. BUT, if they are getting bailed out, it’s not their money anymore. It’s my money. And, your money.
So, given that, do you care about the naming rights issue? Should it be suspended? Should it change? What should the Mets do with they money they’ve received. Remember, the Mets have done nothing wrong here, but should they make a gesture in the name of public relations?
The Mets are getting roasted these days for the patch design they’ll wear on their uniform sleeves this season to commemorate their first year at Citi Field.
The criticisms range from a lack of flash to the failure to mention Citi Field by name. I think the fundamental flaw is it’s not something that would prompt anybody to buy it on a T-shirt or cap.
It’s quite simple, and prompts the basic question: What do you think?
