Waste of money? Only $20.
Waste of time? Absolutely.
But I overheard a conversation between two of my fellow suckers, er, Mets fans, that caught my attention.
During the first game of the day, the Mets entered the ninth inning down 6-3. Scott Hairston finally showed some of the pop he had in spring training by hitting a two-run homer to left field to get the Mets within a run.
The Mets would then load the bases with two out for David Wright.
Citi Field was electric. I'd say there must have been dozens, literally DOZENS of fans screaming their heads off. Yeah, the place was packed.
