    Fred Wilpon does remind me of Mr. Kruger:

    Michigan Lacrosse team to Play Colgate at Citi field in 2013

    http://laxmagazine.com/blogs/author/...rey_McLaughlin

    The Michigan athletic department prides itself on being the "leaders and best." Well, the Wolverines 2013 men's lacrosse schedule certainly underscores that fact, with some outside the box thinking.

    Listed on Michigan's schedule are a pair of neutral-site stadium games in new areas (and arenas): March 17 versus Colgate at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens, home of the New York Mets, and March 2 versus Army at Sun Life Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins.

    That's right, lacrosse in Queens.

    Since it opened in 2009, Citi Field has, aside from Mets games, hosted Paul McCartney and Dave Matthews Band concerts (one of which I attended) and an Ecuador vs. Greece soccer match that drew nearly 40,000 people. But never lacrosse. Might it be sacrilegious mixing the two springtime sports, lacrosse and baseball? Evidently not.

    A Michigan spokesperson said the university has a very close relationship with the Wilpon family, which owns the Mets. Fred Wilpon, the Mets' majority owner, is a 1958 Michigan graduate and the Wolverines' baseball complex in Ann Arbor dons the Wilpon name.

    No, they shouldn't do that. Football is for football stadiums.

    If they want to play football anywhere in this area, they should use MetLife Stadium. It was BUILT for football!

    There's no logical reason to play football at Citi Field, because it wasn't built for it.

    ^ I wouldn't. It ruins the purity of building baseball-only parks. Even if it's only for one game. And it also runs the risk of damaging the field. (There've been several times I've been to Citi after they had those soccer games, and you can still see the outline of the soccer pitch on the baseball diamond.)

    And in the end, there's simply no *reason* to do it. It would be just a gimmick - a joke. Why risk damaging the stadium just for a one-off lark?

    A football game was scheduled to be played at Citi Field in 2009...



    ...but due to low ticket sales the venue was moved from Citi Field to Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island, NY.

    I was particuarly disappointed that the game was moved, because I had a very good seat location - Sterling section 15, row 1, seat 5 - the very first row, directly behind home plate. This may not have been a good location for football, but it would have been my first opportunity to see Citi Field from the front row behind the plate, and I was eagerly looking forward to getting pictures from that perspective.

    (By the way, Las Vegas won the game, 41-10. Attendance: 4,392.)

    There was a certian irony to the fact that while the New York Sentinels were going to play the Las Vegas Locos at Citi Field, the Yankees were winning the World Series in the Bronx that night...

    what kind of damage?
    ooh, those big brutes might bruise the field surface?

    Today, I was at Citi Field today for the canned food drive with City Harvest.



    I entered through the Hodges entrance, dropped off my canned goods before exiting through the Payson entrance. I then went into the gift shop which had been re-organized.

    Jason Bay shirts being cleared out:


    The custom jersey section has been moved and the custom hat section is gone. The kids section has also been moved.


    New Mets alternate blue uniforms in the store:


    I dislike this object. It's a licensed MLB mouse that cost a lot with some cheap knock-off Chinese batteries included.
    Not even using Duracells but cheap "Lusty" batteries.


    The Shea home run apple was damaged and the player banners on the light poles had been removed:
    The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

    Blue would have turned red if he had seen how much they were asking for the mouse - $49.99. Lust doesn't come cheap...

    Not sure if mentioned here before, but Google Maps has finally entered a few panoramic street scenes of Citi, four to be exact, only on 126th St at the right field entrance (as I just alluded to in the Shea thread). The rest surrounding the stadium area are from December 2007. Pretty cool, check it out.

    If all goes well, it looks like Gil, Casey, Tom, Jackie, and Bill will be getting some company in about ten years.
