Yesterday the Mets emailed this ticket offer below.
Hey that looks kind of cool.
I get an orange t-shirt, and there will be a big head on a stick I can have fun with.
The Mets seem to think this is the sort of things Mets fans would enjoy, and they are right.
Which brings us back to Chicago. Here’s a photo of the crowd in Chicago. Unfortunately I don’t have any front shots but you will have to trust me that the white thing is a big head. Also, I was there, the t-shirts are orange.
Mets fans – check.
Orange t-shirts – check.
Big head – check.
Let me zoom out for everyone.
Let me show you what it looked like on television on the Cubs channel. That’s Cubs.
I would love to show you what it looked like on WPIX. But to the best of my knowledge it wasn’t shown. Folks have told me that the Mets fans weren’t shown, I have been loud about it, and nobody has corrected me. So I believe it was not shown on the New York telecast.
Is WPIX/SNY/Metropolitan Base Ball Club LLC obligated to plug someone’s t-shirt business? Of course not.
Could WPIX/SNY/Metropolitan Base Ball Club LLC have done a quick camera shot and said a generic “lots of Mets fans here today!” – yes.
Could they have tagged that camera shot with “and you can come out to Citi Field on Tuesday and get a t-shirt and a big-head” and promoted the offer. Yes.
A very nice profile of The T-Shirt Guy (who gave my mom a pair of sunglasses on Saturday.)
After a little less than four years in business, The 7 Line’s success is easily measurable. As of one recent count, Meenan had 77 items available for purchase on his web site, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, and knitted hats and scarves crocheted by his mother, with a tag that reads “Made By Momma Meenan.” Shirts generally go for $20. The 7 Line makes all of its sales through a PayPal portal on Meenan’s blog, the domain name for which he paid $10. This past year, according to Meenan, The 7 Line revenue was in excess of $500,000.

@jimbojoker38 asked why Keith Miller has a banner outside Citi Field.
Seems curious, right?
Then read this.
So Keith Miller is an agent. Interesting.
And (at least in 2010) the Daily News says his firm is David Wright’s firm.
And there they are on a banner together.
