I have Yankees tickets. All season long I have been selling them. Made some nice coin.
I have Mets tickets. You can barely give them away. I jump on stubhub (don’t get mad at me, visit mets.com and they are begging you to post tickets – somebody is getting rich on this) and tickets are going for face.
September 7th vs the Phillies. Sure the child hating ESPN made it a night game, but it’s still a big game. You can get a seat for $10. Ten.
Every day I get emails from the Mets inviting me to get Pennant packs and to Show Up At Shea and whatever else they can think of. Of course I could go all Mushnick here and mention that they bait-and-switch (Mr. Mets dash – oh psyche we moved the game to 8) – but in theory this is a good team and you’d think people would want to go?
Or are there just 40,000 Mets fans and we all have tickets?
