Viagra forums Quite the evening at Citi Field last night. Viagra forums This post may start to ramble for a while so if you want to stay for the full ride I suggest you make a trip to the rest room, viagra forums grab some coffee and get a comfortable chair.

Viagra forums Last night was another installment of Mets Bloggers Gone Wild at Citi Field. Viagra forums  In this episode, viagra forums which by the way, viagra forums SNY is making a huge mistake not taping our blogger outings at Citi Field. Viagra forums The reaction of me and my fellow bloggers in arms when we gain access to areas of the ball park we never thought in a million years we’d enter is priceless. Viagra forums  I know for myself I feel like a 5 year old again and I’m at some old relatives home and my mother grabbing me by my arm imploring me to not to touch anything and mind my manners. Viagra forums  

Viagra forums At the last bloggers gathering, viagra forums we were invited to listen to Terry Collins pre-game press conference and we were given access to be on the field during batting practice. Viagra forums As the main streamers sat in the Mets dugout, viagra forums Shannon Forde, viagra forums the Director of Media Relations (and all around sweetheart who sets up these events) told our group we could sit in the dugout as well. Viagra forums What? Say that again? So into the Mets dugout we went. Viagra forums  As hard as I tried to stay out of people’s way, viagra forums I felt an arm on my shoulder and voice saying “excuse me” the arm belonged to Daniel Murphy, viagra forums the shoulder was mine. Viagra forums I apologized for being in the way (“Oh sorry Daniel”) and Murph patted my back and said “not a problem”. Viagra forums So just when you think that was a best day ever, viagra forums you have a day like yesterday.

Viagra forums My day at Citi Field started off with the bad news about David Wright and his stress fracture in his back. Viagra forums I arrived a bit earlier than expected and as I waited to get my credential, viagra forums Shannon saw me and invited me to sit in on the Wright press conference. Viagra forums I told you she’s a sweetheart.  As Wright spoke about the MRI and then revealed he had a stress fracture in his back from the play in April involving Carlos Lee, viagra forums I wanted to yell out “oh shit” and kick the chair in front of me but I had to remember that in these situations I can’t be a fanboy. Viagra forums It was interesting watching the media taking notes and asking questions nice and calm, viagra forums while all Mets fans receiving this news were freaking out. Viagra forums    

Viagra forums As I waited for the rest of the blogger-ratzi to arrive, viagra forums Caryn Rose, viagra forums Kerel Cooper, viagra forums Mike Silva, viagra forums Matthew Artus, viagra forums Rob Castellano and Ceetar, viagra forums  I sat near Jay Horowitz who was on his phone spreading the word that Wright was going for a second opinion on his back and relaying the successful surgeries of pitchers Chris Young and Jenry Mejia . Viagra forums As Horowitz got off the phone, viagra forums he let out a sigh and looked over at me with a smile and said hello. Viagra forums I almost did one of those look over the shoulders and then point at myself as to say “you talking to me” and with a “hiya Jay, viagra forums busy day eh”? he replied shaking his head “that’s for sure”

Viagra forums When the other bloggers arrived, viagra forums we were set to start out tour of the new food products available at Citi Field and of the clubs in the ballpark.

Viagra forums I’ve been a critic of some of the food stands and the emphasis that is put on what to eat at the ballpark, viagra forums but after meeting Scott Kleckner, viagra forums Resident District Manager, viagra forums Sports & Entertainment for Aramark, viagra forums I have to switch my position. Viagra forums The enthusiasm that Kleckner has for the food concessions and clubs reminds me of how Terry Collins talks about his team. Viagra forums  I still would rather sit in the stands at a ball game on a warm summer night with a hot dog and drink and from talking to Kelckner, viagra forums he not only understands folks like me, viagra forums he respects that fan mindset and wants you to be able to go to any concession stand and get the best hot dog and drink that you could possibly have. Viagra forums  He puts his degree in Hospitality and Management to excellent use. Viagra forums Kleckner is proud of the quality of the food and the amenities of the clubs at Citi Field, viagra forums and he should be.

Viagra forums Kleckner and his staff brought us around to different concessions to try some of the new food items available at Citi Field. Viagra forums We first went to Catch of the Day stand to sample Popcorn Shrimp and Shrimp Po’Boy ‘s. Viagra forums  I’m not a big seafood eater but I loved the Popcorn Shrimp. Viagra forums The shrimp had a nice breading and wasn’t overly greasy (that was the one thing with the fried food we tried it never had a greasy taste) from there we moved to Keith’s Grill to sample the Mex Burger. Viagra forums This burger was put together by Keith Hernandez and consists of a Brooklyn Burger, viagra forums cheddar and jack cheese, viagra forums bacon, viagra forums guacamole, viagra forums chipotle aioli and jalapenos. Viagra forums That’s a spicy burger. Viagra forums I’m not much for spicy food so I favor the Gold Glove burger myself, viagra forums which has cheese , viagra forumsbacon lettuce, viagra forums tomato, viagra forums ketchup on one side of the roll and mustard on the other   . Viagra forums My one problem with Keith’s Grill is they make the burgers one at time which is great but they need to add another Keith’s Grill somewhere else in the ball park. Viagra forums During the last home stand, viagra forums my wife waited 30 minutes on the line to get four burgers; on her behalf I field a protest with Mr. Viagra forums Kleckner.

Viagra forums We then went over to Cascarino’s Pizza.  This is my least favorite concession, viagra forums the pizza is good (we sampled the thin Sicilian with fresh mozzarella) but I just have a tough time paying over 6 bucks for a slice. Viagra forums  We also tried a new fried chicken sandwich at Blue Smoke which was good but a little too much on the mayo but then again any mayo is too much for me. Viagra forums I hate mayonnaise.

Viagra forums We then went to what I feel is the best new concession to taste the Hot Pastrami. Viagra forums WOW!!! The meat is hand carved nice and thin and very tender and seasoned to perfection. Viagra forums The pastrami may move ahead of the turkey and mozzarella at Mama’s of Corona as my food at choice at Citi Field.

Viagra forums After stuffing ourselves at the concessions we moved on to the clubs. Viagra forums As I say I’m not one for the stadium clubs but again I loved Scott Kleckner’s enthusiasm and passion for the product the staff puts out. Viagra forums  Kleckner raved about the eggplant parmigiana hero in the Delta 360 Club. Viagra forums It was outstanding. Viagra forums The eggplant was just how I like it, viagra forums sliced thin, viagra forums seasoned and breaded nicely and not tough or stringy or mushy, viagra forums and the tomato sauce had nice flavor not acidy, viagra forums the roll was nice and crusty as well. Viagra forums You were right Scott that is a hell of a sandwich.

Viagra forums After all that noshing, viagra forums we were set to watch the game. Viagra forums Shannon then informed us that we, viagra forums the bloggers could sit in the press box. Viagra forums Yes you read that right, viagra forums we, viagra forums the bloggers were invited to sit in the Citi Field press box during a real live Major League game. Viagra forums Talk about an awkward feeling. Viagra forums It’s nowhere near Jackie Robinson breaking the color line I know, viagra forums but never in my wildest imagination did I think I would go from a non-pants wearing , viagra forums basement dwelling lunatic ranting about his favorite baseball team to having a seat in not just a Major League press box but the Citi Field press box. Viagra forums  We all handled ourselves correctly, viagra forums no cheering in the press box and when we spoke to each other it was in hushed tones as people were working. Viagra forums We got a few stares but the box wasn’t very crowded. Viagra forums The best part for me were all the stat sheet  handouts they have, viagra forums it reminded me of when Sal “Red Light” Messina did color on  NY Ranger games on radio, viagra forums he’d always slip me the media notes for the game, viagra forums class all the way was Red Light.

Viagra forums So the state of baseball reporting survived an invasion of Mets bloggers sitting in their Ivory Tower. Viagra forums The bedrock of Manhattan didn’t shift, viagra forums the Atlantic Ocean didn’t erupt and flood Coney Island and Jay Horowitz didn’t suffer a nervous breakdown. Viagra forums Now if one of the beat writers would have come over and put his arm around us, viagra forums like Pee Wee Reese did to Robinson, viagra forums the night would have been complete.
