If you're new to the group you're highly encouraged to hit the tailgate party. DIVE RIGHT IN. Introduce yourself and get the camaraderie started before we even get to the seats.
Gates should open around 9am (GAME IS AT 1:10), so try to be early to make sure you get in to secure a spot. The lot can fill up pretty quickly especially since this is the first game of the regular season.
We'll be set up at our normal spot just past the train station platform. The MTA "Southfield Lot" is located on Roosevelt Avenue just next to the steps to the 7 train. Great location with plenty of room. Check the below map if you're not in the know.
Our season ticket members will be rocking their fresh 2017 jerseys. If you're joining us just for the day, we ask that you wear orange. We know not everyone was willing or able to pick up the jersey separately, which is totally cool, just wear your favorite orange Mets gear.
We'll be filming some content for the "Orange and Blue Thing" podcast, so look for Darren and Brian if you'd like to take part.
Even if you're not sitting with us, you're welcome to come by. More the merrier, so tell your friends. You're encouraged to bring your own grills, drinks, snacks... but make sure you CLEAN UP after yourselves. Nobody likes a mooch, so please don't go rummaging through anyones coolers that don't belong to you. If you're feeling generous and you'd like to share, that's totally your call. Come prepared.
Even if you're shy, try to say hi. We're all friendly.
Secure your spot NOW for the Rally Bus to DC next month.
PRICES GO UP ON MARCH 30TH! ORDER NOW TO GET THE BEST PRICE.
For the first time ever we have two departure locations. You can choose to leave from either Citi Field or New Brunswick, NJ.
The buses leaving from Citi Field WILL NOT stop at the NJ location. So if you have friends leaving from a different location, you'll have to meet them down in DC.
The bus trips are always a blast. Don't be shy if you don't know anyone, we're a welcoming bunch. If you are with a family or young kids, don't let the "party bus" deter you from coming. We split up before boarding and anyone who likes a quieter atmosphere can choose to be on the "family bus".
Round trip from Citi for $60 (until 3/30)
Round trip from NJ for $55 (until 3/30)
The 7 Line Army members Ivery Black and Drea Ortado Goode teamed up on these fresh new photos of our "126th street" and "Stay True" hoodies. You may know Drea as our staff photog at the games and Ivery caught the grand slam off the bat of Kelly Johnson last year at Citi Field. We like to keep as many aspects of our brand "in the family", and can't thank them enough for taking the time to get this done for us.
The hoodies drop this coming Monday at noon and we have them available in sizes S-4XL while supplies last.
We feel these are without a doubt the nicest hoodies in our existence and think that you'll appreciate the craftsmanship behind them. Patches across the chest and right sleeve and a sharp looking woven label on the pocket. Nice simple touches that bring the quality up a notch or two.
126th Street hoodies:
Black and grey zip ups ($82) +$3 for 2XL-4XL
Black and grey pullovers ($76) +$3 for 2XL-4XL
Stay True hoodies:
Royal blue zip ups ($82) +$3 for 2XL-4XL
Another really fun episode this week. The guys welcomed former Mets pitcher and current SNY analyst Nelson Figueroa to the show. Chatting about his road ito the bigs, growing up locally then pitching for the Mets, the WBC, transitioning to SNY and his thoughts on the 2017 Mets. Chill laid back convo.
The guys also break some HUGE news about a partnership with Topps. You're not gonna wanna miss this one. Tune in to hear all about it.
As usual we got to our clip of the week, follows, posts and voice memo's (send us one for next week). Just two guys sipping beers and chatting about random Mets stuff. It's fun.
Also, little did we know a drinking game spawned in the comments section during the live stream. The guys tend to say "dude" a lot. So crack open a cold one and take a sip every time you hear it. DUDE.
Co-hosted by Darren Meenan and Brian Erni, we're climbing the iTunes charts thanks to you guys. Subscribe to the podcast HERE and make sure to leave a review. 5 stars if you think we're worth it.
If you're on Facebook, set a reminder and join us each Thursday night at 6pm. An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what they talk about.
Here's our latest episode. Give it a watch, like it if you do and share with your friends. We have some great guests lined up for the season. We're just getting started. LGM!

"Loyal 'Til The Last Out": An SI Films Documentary
So excited to announce the details for this exclusive first look with The 7 Line Army. Sports Illustrated Films followed our group from Spring Training to the Wild Card game of the 2016 season, and put together this film. We also gave them a hard drive of footage and photos since the beginning to work with. So, if you've ever been to an outing, you're probably in it. This is huge for the crew and we hope you're as excited about it as we are. The doc is all about the friends, families and lifestyles associated with being die hard fans of the team we love along with the history of The 7 Line Army dating back to 2012.
The premiere party will be held at Long Island's famous pub and concert hall Mulcahy's on Saturday March 18th. Entry will be just $40 and that includes a three hour open bar (6-9pm) and a buffet dinner. The guys from Mulcahy's are season ticket members with T7LA, and we can't thank them enough for putting on this great event with us.
Walk the red carpet starting at 5pm and be the first to watch the film at 8pm. Stay afterwards for a night of drinking and dancing. The Zack Brown Tribute Band goes on at 10pm and there will be some drink specials for the rest of the night.
TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW WHILE SUPPLIES LAST:
We can't thank SI Films enough for this opportunity. Really excited to see the finished product. To all of you who have cheered with us since 2012, THANK YOU. Together we turned this vision in to the largest traveling supporters group in MLB history. We should all be very proud of that. Come celebrate with us!
Check out an exclusive clip thanks to SI Films executive producer Josh Oshinsky.
