I made my banner last week in the few minutes of downtime I had and I thought it came out pretty well. Got to Citi Field to line up for the banner today. I met up with Shannon and MP Jr. and I watched the kid while Shannon did his thing. I had my banner opened and the Mets personnel came by a few times and liked it.Mr Met even stopped by it and took some pics and videos with it.
It seemed to be a hit, people liked it both on line and that worked for the Mets.
Then @Mets_Bro pointed out this to me by Adam Rubin.
One banner got missed by the censors: “Hold tight and pretend it’s a plan.” Ouch. #mets
I let Rubin know it was mine. Now here’s the thing. It’s not meant to be a real “knock” on the Mets. If you guys watch Dr. Who at all, he tends to fly by the seat of his pants and always is looking like he doesn’t have a plan and at the last minute something comes together. You then realize he kind of had the outcome planned all along. The Mets make me feel like that right now. Everything is topsy turvy and wacky, but hopefully they have that plan in place that will make everything okay.
The I Want to Believe came about months ago when Shannon and I were just brainstorming stuff for the site. We both love X FILES and The Mets and we mashed them together. It really is the feeling I have with the Mets right now. I SO WANT TO BELIEVE In this team but I can’t right now.
As for Mr. MET. He is the Mets 2013 All Star. Guy is always out there hustling and doing his best.
I don’t think the Banner really “got by” the censors as much as the Mets staff got the meaning. I talk to a few of them regularly and I know they watch some Sci-Fi shows.
