Hear Mike Francesa Slam Mets Sleepover
In case you missed it, you really must hear Mike Francesa’s take on the upcoming “sleepover” promotion at Citi Field on July 19th.
What the sleepover entails is hanging out on the outfield grass and watching on the big screen, the Mets play the Padres in San Diego. Not fuh nuthin’, but, watching those two teams play live is enough to put one to sleep, so the event is fitting. Oh, and the event lasts 15 hours — which will go by faster than a typical Mets-Padres game.
The $200 price tag does NOT include conjugal relations, but it DOES include breakfast, a pillow, AND a ticket to the last game of the season against the Astros.
As Francesca says, the team has enough trouble getting people to come to Citi Field to watch games in the flesh, and now they expect people to come out to watch a game on the scoreboard screen? It’s novel, if nothing else.
