Today on Meet the Mets Bloggers, one of my far and away personal favorites. If you'd like to be part of teh series just drop me an email with the questions and answers (since you're a blogger, make my life easy and format it nice) to firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Who are you and what's the name of your blog?
I am Metswalkoffs :) and my blog is Metswalkoffs.blogspot.com. I've been a Mets fan since the early 80s, and have been blogging since 2005.
2. What kind of things can we find on your site?
I cover the "obscurity beat." Let everyone else handle the basic game commentary, the rumor mill, and what moves/non-moves the team is making during the season. My interest is more in the daily minutiae...the interesting stories that come out of watching players and games. The emphasis is on walk-off wins because that's my favorite type of game, but I'll write about anything Mets-related that intrigues me. For example, on the Hall of Fame, I wrote about how I was rooting for Andre Dawson because he'd made the most "last outs" against the Mets of any player in MLB history.
3. Expectations for 2010?
I never get my hopes too high with this team. I've been disappointed too many times to do that. That way, when they win, its all the better.
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.
