No, I’m not protesting.
For the first time since 2011, I’m going to be watching the home opener for the Mets from the comforts of my home, in Astoria, New York.
While I’d love to be at the game, I can’t justify the $80 price tag (per person, and my group is a group of three). With the $240 dollars that I’m saving on home game #1, I can go to the next ten home games, and still have cash left over.
In addition to that (though not the reason for my absence) I’m working a super-cool event prior to Opening Day, which oddly does involve Mets fans, but it’d be somewhat inconvenient to run to Citi Field afterwords, and not have time to fully experience the ballpark atmosphere, something I like to do the first time I’m at the ballpark.
Now, I should acknowledge that this news is something that 99% of you do not care about, but since this is a “personal” blog, I like to document these things. You know, for the future.
