    I think it's an insult to the men and women who have to wear camouflage as part of their service. A bunch of cosseted millionaire athletes playing dress up like soldiers is the last thing fans need to see.

    That said, the Mets commitment to veterans is one of the (few) great things ownership of this team does. But now they're trying to "sell" it, and frankly, it's all rather hideous.
    Cleon Jones catches a deep fly ball in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Valley of the Ashes, and a second-grader smiles in front of the black and white television.

    Agreed. I think it is meant to honor them but it is too much. I like what the Padres do every Sunday but they do have one of the largest military bases a few miles from there ballpark.

    Reminds me of how, when the fans browbeat them into finally putting in a Hall Of Fame, they had the exit flow directly into the Team Store.
