Despite my tendency to make fun of everything, this is cool, fun and smart. This was part of yesterday’s news but you know Seaver Statue and Food and stuff, so this waited.
The Mets also will announce a promotional schedule of what DePaoli termed a “partnering with more relevant pop-culture brands. It pretty much started off with Marvel a couple years ago doing the Noah Syndergaard as ‘Thor’ bobblehead,” he said. “We saw a massive interest in that. It brought a lot of new fans to the park because they follow Marvel movies or they love ‘Thor.’ It just opened up a new audience for us.” (via Newsday)
Now as much as I like Star Wars, I think that’s cooked…..and Marvel is cooked…..but hopefully the Mets can discover other fun pop culture things and tap in. I know @mediagoon will hit Fast & Furious Night if they have it. How about a good version of Zombie Night? How about Super Mega Baseball Night so we can see what baseball would be like if it was not boring. Dang, I almost made it through an entire post without being snarky. Maybe next time.
