It’s hard to believe the euphoria of Opening Day took place but a week ago.  Since the Mets won Game One they have lost 4 out of 5, and two consecutive home series against Florida and Washington.  Not the Sterling start this team wanted-or more importantly, needed.

The Mets Gave Me Some Tickets To Ride

For years my brother and I had been seven pack ticket holders over at Shea Stadium. I was upset last year when the Mets masterminds decided to do away with seven packs, and only offer a fifteen game package.
