Good morning...once again I will alternate responses to the 5 questions with other type posts.
In the leadoff spot today...Justin.
1. When did you start following the Mets?
Unfortunately, the earliest memory I have is the Mike Scioscia game. But I was definitely a fan before then. Basically as early as I was able to understand baseball.
2. What is your favorite Mets memory?
Probably winning the NLCS in 2000. It was the first World Series the Mets were in that I could actually remember. I was 4 years old in 1986. Clinching the NL East in 2006 is a close second, since I was there. So many years of being tortured by the Braves was finally over. That team seemed to have limitless potential. How times have changed.
3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?
Beltran looking at strike 3 in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS.
4. If you could change one off-field thing about the franchise what would it be?
Better customer service for the fans. Go above and beyond everything. The happier they are, the better the atmosphere, the better the entire team will do.
5. If you owned the team starting tomorrow, what is the first thing you would change?
Better communication within the team and the media. First class organization all the way.
Thanks for the questions. Something therapeutic about writing them.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.
Ticket office anecdotes
A collection of anecdotes related to Mets tickets, and my suggestion the Mets return 7 game packs and make Promenade Left the place to be. Click the pic.
