Thanks to Jimmy the Mets fan for sending these over. Take it away Jim...
We were treated well and it was interesting to see the fancy suites that I can't afford and will never be in again.
The tour guide made a point of thanking us numerous times for coming and for being season ticket holders.
It was mentioned by our tour guide that the ushers don't wear "Phillie Red" jackets. The color is "Brick". It "goes better" with the green seats and the charcoal steel work. Maybe it does from an architectural viewpoint, but only if the architect isn't a Met fan. Unfortunately, the brick jackets will be back in 2010.
There will be one fashion improvement next season. The parking attendants will be in orange and blue.
Here's a picture of the staircases painted orange.
Jimmy frames a shot really well. Great picture! Still no Seaver statue.
Mr. Met shows off the hardware from 69 and 86. We could use another of these.
Jimmy says "here's the snacks I got for my eight grand."
This is the "noise" guy. I want to boo him but he's just a guy trying to earn a living, right? Dave Howard could walk in the room and say "hey back off the noise, let's play some more organ music" so I won't bust this employee too hard....but I hate your work sir.
More tomorrow when we head to the player's clubhouse. Very cool stuff tomorrow!
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.
