Tonight's seat

While wandering through the Delta Club before the game I ran into Paul, whom I had met before one of the Braves games in April. A very nice guy, we sat at the bar and he bought me a beer while waiting for his son to join him for the game. Paul is an early bird like me, getting to the ballpark way before the third inning (that's a reference to one of my pet peeves). I again sat in the nice seats behind home plate, row 11. I always spend some time talking to the ushers because then they know you and don't ask for your ticket every time you get out of your seat. I always have mine hanging from my neck anyway in my 7Line ticket holder.

Tonight's meal - Pulled Pork Sandwich

I wore my IRON MAIDEN shirt tonight because comedian Jim Breuer had said on his Facebook video that he would be at the game. If you follow me on Facebook I post a lot of his videos because not only is he a huge Metalhead but an even bigger Mets fan. I saw him on the field before the game and as he entered the stands before the National Anthem, I gave him a shout and the Metal horns "\m/". Of course he doesn't know me but after the Anthem he walked right by my seat. I shook his hand and had a brief talk about my Mets year and my Metal internet radio station. He noticed my MAIDEN shirt and I told him I wore it in honor of him being here tonight. You can see his call on SNY of Curtis Granderson's home run here.

Honoring Veterans
Two brothers whom served in WWII were honored at the game. Story here. Each game the Mets honor a Veteran with a Mets player handing the Veteran a flag that flew over Citi Field. There is always an enthusiastic response from the crowd.
