"Yo Lizy... did you know that Busta is playing a concert after the game on Friday?" - Me
"uhhhhhh.... no" - Lizy
"Yo Dru.. did you know that Busta is playing a concert after the game on Friday?" - Me
"Where? Citi? I didn't know he was still rappin" - Dru

Yea, I had no idea either, until today. The Mets announced this one out of nowhere on Tuesday, just 3 days beforehand, and it largely went unnoticed. The marketer in me can't figure this one out.

You've seen and heard the promos in the past. If you watch/listen to the games, there's no way you couldn't. It was beat in to your brain for months prior. Heart, REO Speedwagon, and Nas, just to name a few have all played postgame concerts at Citi Field. I'm sure you remember. 

Why this was posted just once on Twitter, once on Facebook, and one e-mail blast is very confusing. I actually missed it and had to scroll back.

If this was put together last minute, you'd still guess that the Mets would be going a bit harder on letting fans know it's going on. Even though Busta is past his heyday, I'm sure these performances don't come cheap.

Lucky for me, I was already hitting the game on Friday, so I'm looking forward to rhyming along to Gimme Some More like I'm rolling in my 1990 Plymouth Acclaim in the summer of '98. My Extinction Level Event tape was on heavy rotation back in the day.

Give us a homestand, one day or even just an at-bat. Wright deserves one last day in the Citi Field sun. If there’s anything good we can take away from this season as fans, it would be getting to see Wright play once more and giving him what could potentially be his farewell sendoff.
