My seats for tonight

May 17th, 2011

NO CHEERING IN THE PRESS BOX.

That was my view of the game Monday night, the view from the Citi Field press box. The Mets PR team invited some bloggers out for what are now regular events; this time we took a food tour of Citi Field (I’m still working on that writeup). At some point during the event, we were extended the opportunity to watch the game from the press box, or to sit in the lovely field level seats provided to us by the Mets. Almost everyone jumped at the chance to sit in the press box. I have to admit, walking into the press box was a little intimidating at first.… [more]

SWIMMING UPSTREAM. [5-16-11]

Today was a great game, despite the weather, because my lowly blogging self got herself out of her mom’s basement and got to sit in the press box. And I had high hopes that this picture was going to be the start of a beautiful blog post: Alas, it was not to be. Late night before an early morning so I’ll have to catch you up on the Citi Field Blogger Food Tour soon.… [more]

TO ALL YOU MOTHERS OUT THERE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. [5-8-11]

This is not meant as a continuation of Friday’s post, where all I did was put up photos of Jose Reyes and talk about how tired I am of hearing fans of opposing teams coming to Citi Field and pretending they have a shot at getting him. It’s like that annoying girl in your Chemistry class who’s in love with the football captain and spends all day writing her first name and his last name together all over her notebook. I wouldn’t mind if they were doing all of this on their blogs or their local papers, but they’re waltzing into our house as though the Mets roster is some kind of smorgasbord available for any and all comers.… [more]

YOU CAN LOOK BUT YOU BETTER NOT TOUCH. [5-6-11]

I would like to begin tonight’s game post with a public service announcment (WITH GUITAR): Dear Mets Fans: the problem is not that there are too many Giants or Dodgers or whatever fans at Citi Field, the problem is that there are not enough Mets fans. Please show up to games. Tickets are so cheap right now. Even if you just walk up to the box office the day of the game, you can get the second row of 515 for $15 (which is what TBF paid on Wednesday night, yes, the Tim Lincecum start). There are bargains galore. You have to come.… [more]

SUPPORT THE CITI FIELD HOOLIGANS.

The highlight of tonight’s loss against the Giants was a large group of fans up in Section 516, towards the top of the park. They caught my attention early in the game when they attempted to get a “R!” “A!” call-and-response going at the second out, and more when they brought out a drum and started singing Daniel Murphy’s name to the tune of “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes: “Dannnnieelll Murrrphyyyy…..Dannnnieelll Murrrphyyyy…..” “Is that ‘Hava Nagila’ they’re using for Ike Davis?” TBF said, when #29 came up to bat. It was indeed, a chant for Ike Davis, set to that popular folk tune.… [more]
