New York Met Tickets for 2008 already

Today I recieved a letter from the New York Mets ticket office offering 7 packs for 2008.  There are several packages available, but I have to pick from one of two:

Family Pack - this includes Saturday June 28th vs and Yankees and Saturday September 27th (penultimate game at Shea Stadium)

"Shea Goodbye" Pack - no Yankee game but includes September 28th the last game at Shea Stadium.  It will likely be very difficult to buy a single ticket for that last game.

After 45 years it will be very hard to say goodbye to Shea Stadium.  I had its day and it will be time to move on to Citifield just adjacent to it.  I will be crying when I see the wrecking back hit Shea,

There is some symmetry in this world.  I actually attended the second game played at Shea in 1964.  I remember my friends and I seeing our Spanish teacher on the subway platform on the way to the game.  The next Monday we discussed the game in Spanish.  So I guess it would make sense for me to see the second to last game at Shea.

I am glad that Saturday Night Oldies is on for a full 4 hours tonight.


I guess nobody would want to read about Karen and I fixing up our kitchen.  We were going to go to the Hofstra basketball game today, but we had to stay home while the painter was working in the kitchen.

In TV and radio, ratings go down you lower your ad rates.
The Mets, however think differently. You'll recall they suffered their biggest collapse in their history (perhaps in MLB history), and will raise their ticket prices 20%?,0,3083811.story?coll=ny_home_rail_headlines

A little fearful that your ticket purchases are helping pay for the new Citi Field, rather than rebuilding the team.

And look for the hapless Miami Dolphins to announce a hefty boost in their '08 tix prices. Chalk it up to surprise and demand.
