With the new season getting nearer and, more importantly, our trip to the Big Apple almost happening, guess how excited I was to print out tickets to see the Mets play the Phillies. That’s right. We’re going to "Meet the Mets, whoah".
OK, it’s not the Padres, who will always remain the first team of preference for me, but hey, it’s the Mets at Shea Stadium. And at what works out at about £45 for three of us in decent seats, the price comparison with going to a football match (even at a lowly league 2 club) makes a night out in New York seem amazingly cheap.
