We sat down with the Mets to figure out how to make our outings happen in the Postseason. Our first ever outing was the final home game of 2012, and we haven’t looked back since. We’ve organized dozens of outings at Citi Field and on the road to Chicago, Philly, SF, Miami, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Baltimore, Colorado and of course the Bronx. The 7 Line Army presence has undoubtedly been strong! We’re excited for this opportunity to keep the good times rolling through October. Thanks to the Mets for working with us on this.
The sales will be held on a series by series basis. First up for us would be the NLDS. If a tie breaker or wild card game takes place, we will not be there as a group.
HOW? You’ll receive a unique ONE TIME USE access code from us. If you’re a customer of ours, you’ll be emailed the link and code just prior to the sale time.
WHERE? Tickets will be sold on Mets.com with your access code.
SEATS? We’ll be sitting in our normal spot in the three center field Big Apple Reserve sections (859 available seats).
WHEN? Planned for later this month. Stay tuned for exact time/date.
PRICE? Pricing will be announced closer to the sale date.
LIMIT? 4 seats max per transaction. Get 4 seats for one game, or 4 for each of the three available games. Totally up to you, but all must be purchased in one transaction.
SHIRT? Since the tickets will be sold via Mets.com they will NOT be accompanied by a t-shirt. We will have a Playoffs shirt (or sweatshirt) sold separately (after they clinch) on our website prior to the game. It won’t be mandatory, but in the spirit of how we roll, it would be nice if you wanted to match. They will also be available at our kiosk behind the seats on game day.
REFUNDS? Baseball is a crazy game and we all know anything can happen. If they end up not playing the games, you’ll be issued a refund via the Mets.
I’m linking to this because @mediagoon did a post yesterday about the T7L outing selling out in a minute, so I feel like we should publish the sequel. The purpose of this post is not to give Darren crap but to follow up on a story, as it seems that there may have been a technical hiccup related to the one minute sellout.
And again, we over here majorly support T7L and think what Darren has created is just awesome and even more importantly (to me) we really like The Guy. I could see a similar company being run by a douche, but Darren is no douche.

A source very close to the long running television series Mets tells us that R.A. Dickey recently filmed some scenes for the season 54 finale.
It has been a tumultuous season for the long running series. Critics of the show shredded the first half of the season, claiming it was boring and more of the same old same old. Neither fans nor the network reacted well to a long arc involving David Wright facing a career ending injury, a plot line that was suddenly forgotten during a mid-season reboot.
With new characters, including the charismatic Yoenis Cespedes, a gimmicky episode involving a parakeet, an emotional episode with Wilmer Flores, and the return of Wright to the main stable of characters, fans of the show are now saying that season 54 is one of the best seasons ever, ratings are up, and the network has picked up their option for up to an additional 19 episodes which will allow them to extend the season into November.
A lonely year writing a hit TV show
But not everything has been rosy behind the scenes. “Greg has had a rough year, “our insider tells us.
“He thought the Wright arc would be very dramatic, but fans didn’t react well to it. The network wanted him to do a big season-long story about Matt Harvey’s return, but he felt that was kind of hacky and was probably right. His #2 (assistant show runner Jason Fry) has been distracted by a new side project and hasn’t been there to punch up the writing, and I think you saw the effect of that a lot in the May and June episodes. There was just no edge.”
“The mid-season reboot was Greg’s idea. Basically he said if you want a good show you have to give me some stars who can act or I’m out of here. They brought in Yoenis, but for a minute I thought Greg was gone.”
“Things were better for a few weeks but with the ratings up the network leaned on him for a ‘stunning’ finale to generate interest for season 55, and well…it’s devastating. They’re all-in on these extra episodes and what them to be as good as the Houston/Boston episodes from the show’s golden era. Greg’s feeling the pressure to top Buckner so it’s almost like ‘ok you want stunning, you got it.’ It’s absolutely devastating.”
Sources say Dickey would only agree to do the episode if his character had a very big moment. The season finale of Mets, titled “Winter Is Coming”, airs Wednesday November 4th.
