I was driving home from work yesterday during all the madness in DC. I was in a daze listening to it unfold on the radio. My wife shot me a text "I'm pretty sure Steve Cohen sent you a hat". Even for just that split second, it was a pleasant distraction.
Even though you and I have been clamoring for the Mets to make some big roster moves (EDIT: THEY DID!), the ones made so far away from the diamond have been top notch. From building a relief fund for ballpark employees, donating $17.5 million to local small businesses, and an additional $500,000 to the River Fund, just to name a few.
Such a cool hat, enjoy Darren— Steven Cohen (@StevenACohen2) January 7, 2021
"Just wanted to send a small gift designed by a fellow life-long Mets fan right here in Queens. We specifically chose to celebrate "Shea Bridge" as it represents our past and future as a team that I'm so excited for you to be a part of. Thank you, Darren, for your support and coming onboard this journey with my family and I. #LGM Steve"
Little things like this go a long way. I've seen some others post that they were also mailed one. Not sure how Steve selected who gets them, but the gesture is much appreciated. Still waiting on the car....
Pitchers and catchers are supposed to report in about a month. Will fans be allowed to hit the games come March? Time will tell.
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
