PREGAME MEET UP TAILGATE: We’re going to be in the BLUE parking lot at Turner Field by 3:00pm. LOOK FOR HUNDREDS OF ORANGE T-SHIRTS. If you’re coming, please contribute by bringing supplies. Grills, coolers, ice, garbage bags, food, drinks, cups... ya know the drill. For those of us who are flying, stop at a convenience store and bring something. Try not to show up empty handed. If ya absolutely have to bring nothing, at least offer to chip in.
PRE-PAID PARKING: ATL local Mets fan tells us, prepaid parking is $10 opposed to $15 day of game. Get now to make sure you'll be able to join. Sometimes if you don't pre-buy, the BLUE lot gets packed out. Thanks for the tip, Kevin. BUY YOUR SPOT HEREMets fans from SIXTEEN states are joining us for this one. In no particular order. AL, WY, GA, FL, NY, NJ, NC, TN, PA, SC, CO, KY, VA, CA, MS and CT will all be representing the orange & blue. That’s a whole lot of amazin’. Thank you for joining us. If this is your first time, you’re in for a real treat. Strangers become best friends by the end of the first inning. Cheer your brains out and have a great time.
The game starts at 7pm. Let’s plan to start cleaning up by 6, so we can roll in to the seats together by the National Anthem. Let’s not leave any extra mess for the parking lot staff. We’re guests in their home. Let’s be respectful.
All eyes are on the clock as time quickly ticks away at David Wright’s career. When the Mets returned home to begin their final homestand of the season on Tuesday, Wright gave his long-time companion Jose Reyes a parting gift.
