It is about time. I just wish it were sooner. Fans of the New York Mets will have to wait until 2013 to get the MidSummer Classic at Citi Field, this according to MLB sources.
I do not know about you, but I had an awesome time last year when the All-Star game was at Yankee Stadium. I went to Fan Fest for two days and the All-Star Parade. It was great. There was so much to do and just not enough time to get everything in.
I loved it. That is saying a lot. I’m not a big fan of the All-Star game.
While baseball players talk about how great it is to have a chance to hang out with other great players from other teams, it is a great chance to meet baseball fans of every team and just talk baseball.
After awhile, talking just Mets and Yankees gets a little tiresome. Although it is absolutely hysterical when both teams are doing poorly. Then it becomes who is doing worse, which is always a funny topic to overhear. Usually it is all about who is the better team.
Here is what one person had to say to Kevin Kernan about the Mets getting the All-Star game:
That’s the way it’s looking. That also gives Citi Field time to get everything set. The Mets deserve to have an All-Star Game.
Maybe when it comes, the Mets will actually have won a championship and it will be a bigger celebration for all of New York.
