A longer than usual excerpt.
Using deductive reasoning, I think it’s safe to conclude that our section not being shown or mentioned wasn’t because the Mets/WPIX producers and camera guys simply missed it or forgot.
We were a group of 500 Mets fans in orange shirts screaming in the bleachers at Wrigley Field for an entire game. We were impossible to miss. Moreover, our presence was free publicity for a franchise that’s in dire need of it.
Why on Earth would anyone connected with the Mets not want to show a section of 500 fans most who flew halfway across the country who came out to see the 2013 Mets, a team that was 16-23 when Saturday’s game began?
It seems to me that our section was ignored on purpose, and that the order came from someone who didn’t want to highlight The 7 Line in a positive way. What that person failed to realize, is that it wasn’t about The 7 Line, it was about 500 die hard fans, including Darren, who traveled to Chicago during a season when the team is struggling because we love the Mets. The Mets and WPIX pretended we didn’t exist. It was both an insult to us and an idiotic public relations move.

It looks like @mediagoon will be heading to the MLB Shop to pick himself up an authentic Wright USMC jersey for…wait for it….$269.
I bet I will crack and get a replica. These are ugly but they are what we call Unicorns. You whip this out in 2018 and it is suddenly cool.

The Mets should call Wrigley Field as soon as they are done reading this and hire whoever is the number two guy in Fan Relations at Wrigley Field.
Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four. But FIVE different ushers walked up to me, seeing me in my Mets gear and…
…you’re waiting for me to [...]
