When the Mets unveiled the model of $iti Field not only did the envision a state of the art ball park but they also were of the belief that there would be so much money flowing through it’s coffers Freddie Skill Set could afford to buy Jeffey a personality but lo and beholdÂ the economy tanked and Bernie Madoff ripped off the Skill Sets fortune leaving the club not exactlyÂ swimming in currency. As opening day approches what we thought was a tough ticket, the first game at $iti Field, are as plentiful as the AM/NY give away newspapers at a Subway station. So what’s a team to do?
Well, first you try and bribe the fan base by offering a ticket to game 1 of the $iti Field eraÂ for the purchase of 5 more games. This isÂ head spinning because the Mets wanted to be rid of us Seven-Pack ticket buyers asÂ we were a nussienceÂ as it wasn’t worth the time and trouble to keep us on because the ticket demand at $iti would be off the charts. Well for the cheaper seats they were but the high rollers who wouldn’t knowÂ a curve ball from aÂ High Ball are now hurtin’ for certainÂ in this weak economy.
So becasueÂ of that the Mets are now auctioning off opening day tickets in the exclusive Stuff ShirtÂ section of the ball park so if you have an extra $525 laying around the couch cushions log on and put your bid in or better yet keep that cushion cash, order a pizza and watch the game on TV.
