The NY Mets are looking for a few good Moms to join in a panel discussion giving feedback to the club on how to make the Citi Field experience better as a family event. This is quite an astute move made by the club as any man with kids knows it’s Mom who keeps everything progressing in the right direction.
Moms never fall asleep on the couch when watching their kids. Moms never hold up take out menus and say “what would kids like for dinner? Italian? Chinese? Or how’s about a trip to Micky D’s? And no woman who has ever bore children has ever sat down and watched Sponge Bob Square Pants and laughed out loud? None. You know why? Moms have that special pragmatic way of handling things that Dads are just not equipped with. So the Mets reaching out to the Moms of the fan base is quite frankly a stroke of genius.
The organization is trying to make a strong effort to make your day at Citi Field one you would want to do again. Let’s be honest here, the male baseball fan can deal with a dirty bathroom or a rude usher and a Schmohawk or two acting up with the hops and barley hit their brain, but Moms do not tolerated any of that and I’m sure the women who sign up for this panel will have ideas and opinions on how to make a day at Citi Field one that is enjoyable and find practical ways to utilized the staff and amenities at Citi Field in a better more efficient way .
I still don’t think even a panel of Moms can work to get Dads to admit that short cut he knows to beat the traffic on the Grand Central was a big mistake.
