Opportunity for Mets – Yankees Tickets

yankees_logoAccording to MetsBlog, you can go to Mets.com now through June 4th to register for an opportunity to purchase tickets for the “subway series” between the Mets and Yankees at the end of this month.

To be clear, this registration places you into a random drawing for an opportunity to buy tickets. It’s the same process by which one would purchase playoff tickets.

For the record, I am SO GLAD I have no interest whatsoever in attending any of these games. To me, going to a Mets-Yankees game is like going to an Irish pub on St. Patrick’s Day — too many raucous, belligerent drunks in too small a space, and whoever doesn’t want to punch you in the nose is simultaneously spilling beer and high-fiving you in an attempt be your best “bud”.

But hey if you’re going, have a great time. I hear the corned beef and cabbage is amazing.
