I started thinking about the Mets Museum this morning.
Mets, I don't think I've actually ever asked for something. Until now.
When you have the press gathering to show off the Mets Museum I'd like to be invited. I've proven myself to be honorable with you (maybe annoying, but honorable) and I bet right now my recap will be something like "I came away excited, feeling good. It's smaller than I thought, and there could be more about xxx but overall it's very nice." Consider this my official request. I think it would be good for you and for me if I had a nice long post that got people jazzed about the museum. Whatcha think?
Anyway, I was thinking about getting together a small gathering of fans for Opening Day. Maybe we meet by the Seaver Statue, I mean by the subway station, a half hour before the gates open. We wear our Mets jerseys (you can even wear black even though I will take your picture and make fun of you) and all walk into the Mets Museum together. Do I expect thousands of Mets fans to join me? Nope, but even five of us hanging out would be cool, especially if we all wear blue caps. Just a thought, lemme know if any interest, and I'll announce something "official" down the road.
Yeah Jason, that's what I was thinking - and as I said I don't expect thousands of folks to join, but hey even 10 of us would be fun - and say we got "40" of us to all walk in wearing blue caps. It would be a fun pic if nothing else.
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.
