Pics From Citi Field Tour Pt 1

(Shannon here – Media Goon is a man of few words, and I need to teach him about post-formatting [use the insert gallery command Goon] but at least he was kind enough to post his tour photos.  Here’s part one, and we’ll roll out the rest as the days go by, everyone is at the beach today anyway.  For some actual words about the tour, here’s what he wrote last night.)

Part 1 of Citi Field tour.

Citi Field Tour

Today was the 1st day for the tours at Citi. When I went to the ticket window to pick up my ticket for the tour I had seen a sign that the tours for today and tomorrow were all sold out.

Each tour lasts about an hour give or take a few minutes and everyone today that work the tours were very cordial.

There was one older Mets fan who had a cane and you could tell walking the tour was going to be a little bit difficult for her. The tour guides come right out with a wheel chair for her and had one of the other guides be her escort to push the chair along the tour.

The tour meets up in the ticket office lobby where they gather the group of fifteen fans to go on the tour. Everyone received a Lets GO Mets keychain. (IMO a nice little touch)

Our guide introduced himself and we preceded to walk into the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. Now, before he got into talking about the Rotunda here are the two rules for the tour. No video is to be taken of the tour( DAMN IT and I had my video camera with me.) and two there is to be no pics taken in the clubhouse(for players privacy issues).
There was no going to any of these destinations: Promenade/Promenade Club, Kiddie Field, Pepsi Porch, Acela,and Champions Club.

The places we did hit were: the different suite levels, Delta 360 Lounge and Club, Caesers Club, Press Box, Production Suite, Dugout, on the field, The Modell’s Zone, the bullpen, the Mets Clubhouse, locker room, and players lounge.

The guide said that the Starting Pitcher of the Game picks the uniform combo of the day(sorry Shannon). He also picks the music that plays in the locker room before the game.

Theres a more info thats talked about on the tour but why should I ruin it for you if you want to go. Nice tour. Not bad for first day out, they ran pretty smooth. Just remember no videos on the tour. I got asked a few times if i was shooting video by three different Mets employees. I had to explain to them my video camera also shoots stills.

I have pictures that I will be posting later today when I have some more time.

Brooklyn Cyclones to Host TNA Wrestling

Yes I am a wrestling fan. So when I heard that TNA was coming to MCU Park, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones I was stoked. Tickets for this event went on sale today for July 2nd.

I have been to the park before and I know how great the views are there. I figured seeing a wrestling show there could be pretty fun too.

Not only after the event is there going to be a fireworks show, you also get a ticket for a later Cyclones game for free for each ticket bought for TNA.

The highest price tickets were $50 bucks for ringside seats plus a meet and greet with the wrestlers.

There are also $35 field box seats and $20 regular box seats. They don’t have a meet and greet though. But you still get the free Cyclones ticket.

Ringside tickets are sold out but the other tickets are available here.
