Because I just bought ticks for Opening Day, Mets-Marlins April 5th at $iti Field.
Now as ecstatic as I am to have gotten tickets via the Mets.com early ticket sale offer, I’m surprised how fast I got the tix.
The pre-sale tickets started at 10AM but I had to go out and do my off day errands and did not get home until 12PM. I figured no way any opening day ticket would be available but I was very happy to see that date still available.
After I made my purchase, I started thinking about past seasons when you could never just log in and buy opening day tickets, those tickets were always held back as part of ticket packages or not released until the very last minute.
Now is that a good thing or a bad thing? Does it say how much the fan base has soured on the team and the organization that OPENING DAY is not the hot ticket it’s been the past few years ?
Maybe it’s the cold slap in the face the Skill Sets need that guys like me and the other hardcore Mets fans are few and far between. Maybe this will send the message that you just can’t open the gates to $it Field and the congregation will come a runnin’
They got me and they will always have me no matter how bad a team they put on the field and no matter how much they treat me like a leper at the ball park. Maybe that makes me a big Jack Ass, I won’t argue but instead of calling me a Jack Ass just call me METLE!
