I thought it would be fun to meet some of the other Mets bloggers....if you want in, email me firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Who are you and what's the name of your blog? My name is Kerel Cooper and the name of my blog is OnTheBlack.com. I'm 33 years old, I've been a Mets fan my entire life. I began OnTheBlack in September of 2008 as a way to give myself the opportunity to voice my opinions about the team I love, the New York Mets. The site has grown nicely over the past year and I've also received some very positive feedback from other bloggers and fans. For more on my blog and to see what others are saying check out my About Page.
2. What kind of things can we find on your site?
My site is unique from other Mets blogs in the fact that it's a video blog. I would say 80-90% of my blog posts are video (me talking into a camera). I eventually would like to have a daily internet show all about the Mets. I provide news, opinion and analysis about everything concerning the New York Mets. You can also find photos and interviews with other bloggers on my site. Once the 2010 season starts I will also be adding mini-game recaps. So if you miss a game and want to find out the final score plus major highlights, etc.. you can find it on OnTheBlack.com
3. Expectations for 2010? It's tough to say what I expect from the Mets in 2010 at this point. I don't think management is done putting the team together but considering the financial resources the Mets have and the market they play in, I expect them to compete for a playoff spot every season.
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.
