Quick note: Mets Police is more or less operating normally through today and tomorrow...so if you're not celebrating, or just want to escape your family and surf the 'net we'll be here.
Two emails this morning from The Media Goon. Goon has already renewed his tickets and asked for an upgrade. The Mets have told him he has to wait before being allowed to spend more money. Really? Here's Goon:
The Mets ticket office just called to ask me if i was renewing for next year. I told them I was probably in the minority of people that actually renewed and more then likely only person who asked for an upgrade too. I then go to him its really bad when your calling everyone to make sure they renew, even the people that already have. I won't know about my upgrade till 1st week of Janurary becaue of the DEC 31st deadline
Don't they check you off some list once you do pay?
But wait there's more...
Someone else from the ticket office just called me..Told me they havent forgotten about my request for an upgrade. He is the one that handles all the sunday plans so he will be calling me back in the 1st wave of calls after Dec 31st about upgrading.
That's good that they called him back. I'm kind of surprised the tix office is working today. Why make this guy wait, he wants to spend money - it's not like they won't have any seats available. Maybe they want to make sure he gets a good upgrade, and it's actually in his favor?
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.
