Wow the mainstream media really needs to catch up. I’m hearing from tons of Mets fans this morning that they are upset that the first game at C-Field will not be a Mets game.
Welcome to February 17th everyone – Mets Police talked about that a week ago!
Yes it’s stupid. It also decreases any motivation I might have to go to the Friday night game vs. the Red Sox (I’ll put my efforts into checking out New New Yankee that night). I have my opening day seats for the regular season, that will be fine. I don’t need to give the Mets money to see Boston in the second ever event at C-Field. Stupid. Typical.
MLB.com is pushing this:
7. Mets Authentic Customized Home Jersey.
It comes with the 2009 inaugural season patch to help usher in Citi Field. Choose any name and number
to go on it, but the hot pick right now is “RODRIGUEZ” and “75.”
However as we also discussed that’s a lie. You can’t get ANYTHING. Try buying a Ramirez jersey. Not that anyone named Ramirez is on the Mets or is going to be on the Mets…but maybe YOUR NAME is Ramirez and you want your own name on the back. The message comes back:
Your current entry cannot be processed. Some entries are prohibited due to guidelines for past and present player names. Please create a new entry.
So I can be named Rodriguez but not Ramirez?
They are also pushing these which are kind of cool:
15. Red Sox Authentic 1918 Road Jersey.
This is identical to the jersey Babe Ruth wore in that championship season, when he split time between the pitcher’s mound and the outfield. Mitchell & Ness has a pretty incredible 40th anniversary look for Johnny Bench
If you have $109 you can buy this ugly ring.
