My last post actually reminded me of something. The link below takes you to a list of Mets promotional dates for the 2009 season. http://newyork.mets.mlb.com/schedule/promotions.jsp?c_id=nym Notice something odd? There is not one promotion related to the 40th anniversary of the 1969 team. There have been a lot of complaints in the media and by fellow bloggers about the Mets failure to honor their history. I haven't seen any of them mention this. Just for the heck of it, I looked up 3 teams celebrating anniversaries this year. The Athletics (1989), Tigers (1984) and Dodgers (1959) all have promotions related to celebrating past championships. Heck, the Pirates have a day in which they are commemorating the 100th anniversary of a championship, by giving away "1909 Honus Wagner" figurines. The games of June 23, August 2 and August 22 are all listed as generic "Promotion" dates. Here's a few ideas for the Mets on what they could do for those dates, beyond
A blog devoted to cataloguing New York Mets walk-offs and other trivia. For those unaware of the definition of walk-off just replace the term with the words "game-ending" and you should have a much better understanding of the phrase.
