I Love Mr. Met
Mr. Mets is awesome. He is one of the best parts of the entire Mets organization. He was the first ever mascot to step onto the field, and he has been a legend ever since. Forbes magazine has named him the best mascot in all of sports. Similar to our beloved Tom Seaver, Mr. Met is also a Hall of Famer. He even has his own money!
The story of Mr. Met has been a story many have sought to tell. Paul Lucas has done phenomenal work trying to uncover who is the creator of the famous mascot. ESPN has dedicated one of its awarding winning 30 for 30s to find out who is the man inside the mascot. He was even the subject of a feature in Rolling Stone. Needless to say, Mr. Met has not only captivated the hearts and mind of Mets fans, but also the entire world.
That is why the best thing the Mets organization has done in recent years is to make him eminently available to Mets fans young and old. In fact, if you want to see him at Citi Field, the Mets have provided a schedule of his appearances:
|12:10 Game||1:10 Game||4:10 Game||7:10 Game||8:05 Game|
|10:45 a.m.*||11:45 a.m.*||2:45 p.m.*||5:45 p.m.*||6:40 p.m.*|
|11:20 a.m.||12:20 p.m.||3:20 p.m.||6:20 p.m.||7:15 p.m.|
|2nd Inning||2nd Inning||2nd Inning||2nd Inning||2nd Inning|
Mr. Met is always there rooting along with us Mets fans. Win or lose, he always has a smile on his face (of course he does, he gets to go to all the Mets home games). His smile greets Mets fans as they come to Citi Field, and it is there when we make our way home. I also find Mr. Met is always at his best around young Mets fans.
I know this is true because my son loves Mr. Met. When we have been to Citi Field, Mr. Met has given my son his autograph, a high five, and has taken a picture with him. Thanks to Mr. Met, we have memories of the Mets games we have spent together
I look forward to more memories like this with my son, and God willing, future generations of Mets fans. Thank you Mr. Met.
