Chris fired me up. Â I have spent the better part of three years giving the Mets grief….they responded…and now you guys are going to leave empty seats next weekend?
SHOW UP OR SHUT UP. Â I WANT A SELL OUT!!!!
Just wanted to say that our fan base is pathetic and ridiculously hypocritical. Last year all I heard from people was about about how The Wilpon’s didn’t honor their history enough at CitiField in 2009(which was true). People were worried about more murals and posters and memories of history for months! They blogged, emailed the newspapers and called the FAN . It went on so long I couldnt believe it.
But next Sunday there are still thousands of tickets available. Not just the crazy over priced ones(which I could understand ) but Uppers ! The cheapest tickets in the house aren’t even sold out. People wanted pictures and plaques and autographs on walls but here is a day our history and past heroes are honored IN PERSON and its not sold out. People complained on the FAN about Old Timers Day and Dave Howard had to defend that. Well,here it is, our heroes of the past in the building , on the field being honored and its not sold out. I’m not even taking into account the “I See Dead People” actions of the team since the break..It has nothing to do with some walk up day of game sales they lose when the team isnt playing well. This should have been sold out right after they announced it. I’ve been a Mets fan since birth and will always be but there is something seriously wrong with this fan base. The lowly NY Islanders (another team of mine) even sold the building out last year when they honored Al Arbour. This is Doc, Darryl, Davey and Cashen and they’ll be looking up from the field at empty seats . For that fact , I actually feel bad.
This is Pathetic.
Sorry . Just wanted to get that off my chest.
Lets Go Mets !!
