Man it's cold out there this morning. Good luck if you're heading off to see the Jets lose tonight. Stay warm.
For the newer readers, every Sunday I post a recap of what was popular over the last week, and sprinkle in a few that I think deserved more readers.
First some other stuff:
Wow, there's so much content waiting to be published. You've been great about sending things in. Between those submissions, Osh41 actually opening his uniform closet, Dan scanning his scorecards, Frank investigatig the Tug McGraw mystery (check the comments here) and in theory the Mets will announce Jason Bay this week - I already have like 7 articles a day ready to fire, which is actually too many. Imagine if the Mets actually played a game. Thanks to everyone for the support, it has been Amazin'
Since y'all have Google and I like to be honest, you may accidentally discover Shannon's Other Blog. Here's the deal - I'm trying to familiarize myself with different software. Mets Police works off the Blogger system, and everyone says Wordpress is better for blogs. So before I go all-in and move Mets Police over to WP, possibly destroying everything, I want to mess around with WP a little. No need for the WP fans to tell me the difference between .com and .org, got it, I'm just messing around. I'm not pushing the other site, but there may be a few odds and ends over there (some Jets thoughts today) some days but not all and not like over here. We'll see where life takes it. I'm also increasingly aware I start too many sentences with "so" and need to break that habit.
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.

Dan's photos from the 1986 tickertape parade. You know, 25 seasons ago when the Mets won?
