SLACKISH REACTION: So it occurred to me that on paper this Fan Fest should be everything I ever wanted, everything this blog ever wanted.
And yet, I didn’t even make the slightest effort to get tickets. I never felt the buzz. I don’t feel left out. I don’t feel any regret that I am not going today.
I think this all got back to Opening Day 2016 when the Mets jacked the price of tickets and I got shut out because of all the new True Blue And Orange fans that had been diehards since 2015. Maybe it goes back a year when Igave up my ticket plan. Maybe if I still lived 5 subway stops away I would go, but I am not driving over two bridges.
Maybe the Mets did a lousy job promoting it.
Maybe Major League Baseball’s production has gotten really bad.
Maybe the way you guys all feel about The Wilpons is how I feel about this GM.
Anyway, I always wanted the Mets to have a FanFest, and here it is, and I’m not interested. Life is funny like that.
So it turns out that if there ARE some sub-menus on the Fanfest webpage. I don’t know of a single person who knew these were sub-pages until someone told me on twitter this morning. Here’s some Actual Fanfest info.
Looks like Cano and Nimmo are joining JDG, Matz, Pete, and Rosario. Keith Hernandez says he is going. People tell me Shamsky said he is going. There’s still the Jon Matlack thing.
Anyway, I’m going to do my normal Saturday and I am sure I will do a recap post at some point but I’m not nuking my day updating things.
