Re: Cessation of Hostilities.
On this date, the 16th of November, 2011, 50 years to the day the Mets originally introduced the skyline logo, I call for an immediate stop to all complaining about uniforms.
Earlier today, David Howard presented the new Mets Uniforms for 2012 at a special ceremony in Queens. Fittingly, the voice of the Mets Howie Rose was on hand.
Mr. Howard also has brought back Banner Day.
I hereby call upon all my followers to cease all complaining about uniforms and Banner Day. There is to be little to no discussion of blue buttons or Wilpon Scripts.
I have much to tell you in the upcoming hours and days. What you need to know now is:
– the pinstriped jerseys are restored as the primary home uniform with a blue cap. These jerseys are officially “ivory” and casually called off-white.
– the “hybrid” cap is discontinued as a current item
– the road jersey will be paired with a blue cap.
– the pinless jersey is now the alt and will be paired with a blue cap. These are “sno-white” (not sure of the spelling) but are a different shade than the pinstriped versions.
– the blue caps have a 50th anniversary logo on the back as seen on this consumer model .
– the undergarments will be blue (if not orange – see David Wright). They will not be black.
– black jerseys will occassionally be worn, probably on the road, as a nod to what I call Generation Piazza.
– Banner Day will be a single game unless weather forces a doubleheader. The date is not yet announced.
All followers are instructed to finacially support this move to blue. Together, we have fought for this day for 4 years. I call upon you to support this move with your wallets. Let us sell out Banner Day. Let us ask our loved ones for new jerseys as holiday gifts. Let us support the Mets. Let us all be true to the orange and blue. Let us back our words with action.
As your leader I have made the first purchases. I do not ask you to spend your money without spending my own money.
Today, VB Day, is a great day.
Let us thank David Howard and the Wilpons.
Let us thank our friends in Media Relations for inviting us to the ceremony. Let us thank Paul Lukas for leading this movement.
Let us thank Media Goon and Dan and Osh41 for pitching in on the site.
Let us thank Matt Cerrone and the other bloggers who have supported our cause with links. Let us thank each other for shouting out loud and long until we were heard.
Now, we lay down our arms and move forward. I have been honored to be considered an influential member of this movement. Thank you for your support.
I have much to tell you in these next hours and days. Keep reading.
