THE $ITI NEVER SLEEPS BUT THE TEAM DOES

So where do we begin with the First Night of $iti Field?

 

The opening was very nice I hear (I Tivo’d the pre game and I’ll watch it tonight as I ran a practice for my Babe Ruth League team last night that I wanted to do an hour and lasted two hours instead ) as The Franchise and Mike Piazza staged a sequel to the closing of Shea with the first pitch at $iti. At least The Franchise stayed for the game as Piazza I guess scared of having to answer any questions about PED’s took a powder after the ceremony. Should have brought Jerry Grote in instead, he never ducked anything.

 

You know what’s missing from $iti Field? Signage  Not enough advertising signs <eye’s rolling>

 

Okay yes I get it the food is wonderful at the new ballpark. The team can’t catch and has pitching question marks and clutch hitting is still a foreign substance but the food is really good <both eyes rolling> Maybe the team will perform as good as the Shake Shack or Box Frites some day.

 

I guess Big Pelf couldn’t build off his last start where he started like shit but finished strong. I wasn’t concerned until I heard J-Man on the post game saying he was concerned about Big Pelf so now I’m concerned and I guess you should be too.

 

Like a lot of Mets bloggers I was a Heath Bell fan and thought the Mets handled him badly but you know what Heath? Time to shut the fuck up! You too Duaner, especially you Duaner. If you put half the energy into to training that you do in running your mouth you might still be here. Sanchez has questioned why he had to prove himself in spring training as he is clueless that he never stepped up when counted on last year. Enjoy San Diego fellas’ and the dog days of August when you’re in last place.

 

I know with the novelty of the new stadium (I’m going Saturday and I’m leaving my scorebook home as I know I’ll be spending more time out of my seat than in it) and everyone is milling about but the site of ass-less seats behind home plate can not make the Skill Sets happy.

 

I love the cat running on the field last night. I didn’t get a good look at the fleet feline until this morning when I picked up the Daily News and I did a double take as the cat looks just like one of our cats (Sandy) I have to frame that back cover.

 

 

I hope Omar read the game summary of the Dodgers-Giants game last night.

  1. I took out a second mortgage and bought tickets for last night on Stub Hub. It was something my daughter and I will have as a life experience. A few observations:

    I really like the place. It reminds me of Citizens Bank, Turner Field, and PNC. I like the open-air areas near the concession stands. Unlike Evan Roberts, I like the scoreboards. A few negatives…

    I’m fine with the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. I’m not fine with all the Brooklyn Dodgers shit all over the fucking place. I mean, WE COMPETE WITH THE DODGERS! Seeing “Dodgers” in script on merchandise in our place makes me sick. Hello, they ended our season in 1988! Can we immortalize Mr. Robinson and NOT the Dodgers, please!!!! Waited for 20 minutes to my kid nachos, missed an inning and there was no TV near the nacho stand. I thought they had addressed this issue? And the escalators and elevators did not work, getting out was like walking down the steps of the Statue of Liberty.

    Steve, I’m in Promenade 538 for Saturdays this year, maybe I could say hello some day.

  2. Here’s a Pic. of Citi Kiti Cat my man . He was the Only Real entertainment in the Park that night………….( Roll Eyes )
