Once again Peter hooks me up...if you click here and look down at the bottom of the page you'll see three different videos related to the 2010 Mets marketing which has the theme "We believe in 2010."
A few points:
You have David Wright telling me that "we believe in ORANGE BLUE AND YOU."
Awesome. Then let's wear orange and blue and you'll get the me part. "Orange, blue and you" is now in your marketing so let's keep the black jerseys and especially those hideous blue/black caps in the closet.
"We believe in comebacks." Ok, I'll roll with you.
"We believe in two thousand and ten." Pet-peeve of mine, drop the "and" - plus it's time to say "twenty ten." I'm off-topic.
I can't embed the video. As I discussed last week, if I were able to embed an MLB.com video, baseball would likely go out of business. Why would they want to make it easy for me to share a marketing campaign with you......
...and then make you sit through a 30 second ad to see it. I know we have to monetize everything (and yes I try to make a few bucks here and there on this site...wouldn't you like to buy some Jets tickets over there on the right?)...but it's a marketing campaign, don't you want people to see it?
Is it me, or do they whip out "believe" a little too often, I'd argue that it's ours but Tug took it with him to Philly. (Speaking of Tug, come back this afternoon for a look at cool Tug jersey).
Orange, blue and you. I am sure I will be quoting that about 10,000 times in Twentyten.
In case you're wondering...here's some quality yet suspect Wikipedia:
"Inaugural Season at Citi Field" (2009)
"Last Season at Shea" (2008)
"Your Season Has Come."(2007)
"The Team. The Time. The Mets." (2006)
"Next Year is Now" (2005)
"The New Mets" (2005)
"Catch the Energy" (2004)
"Always Believe" (2002)
"Amazin' Again" (2000)
"Are You Ready? New Year, New Team, New Magic" (1999)
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.
