This Is Going To Be Fun – Who Will Be The First?
Here are just a few of things the Mets and New York have planned for tonight’s Home Opener at Citi Field.
1. The Empire State Building will be lit up in honor of the Mets tonight and feature the team colors, blue and orange, to mark the special occasion. Look for the awesome spectacle to begin just before game time and last until midnight. (heck yeah!)
2. Two of our all time greatest Mets will throw out the first pitch. It will be an encore of the last pitch thrown at Shea as Tom Seaver will throw out the ceremonial first pitch to Mike Piazza. Not a bad way to christen a new baseball park if you ask me.
3. The Sharks versus the Jets – The cast of “West Side Story” on Broadway will sing the national anthem tonight. As far as I know, switchblades, chains and pipes are optional.
4. During the singing of the national anthem, more than 200 veterans representing the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy will unfurl a massive American flag across the outfield. That’s going to an awesome sight!
5. At the end of the anthem, there will be a flyover by four U.S. Marine F-18 Hornets from Beaufort, S.C. I always love the flyovers and I hope they get them to pipe orange and blue smoke as they soar across the stadium!
6. What I want to see most of all is the brand new homerun apple. I want to see that beautiful red orb bob up and down a few times tonight! It’s all on you Wright, Beltran, Church, Delgado et al!
Who will be the first Met to activate the homerun apple?
I’m going with scorching, red hot Ryan Church!
