Mets to Open Citi Field with Sass

A Mets press release fabulously announced this weekend that Mets legend Tom Seaver, Piazza New York Catcher, and the cast of West Side Story will joining the ball club for today's home opener at the new Citi Field.

Word is Omar Minaya will be asking each of the actor/dancer to "show what their jazz hands are made of" and take groundballs for scouts prior to the game, citing that they "can't be a worse #2 man than Luis Castillo." Despite protests that they "aren't ball players or acutally even Latin American for that matter," most are likely to humor the GM.

It is yet to be confirmed whether or not the organization will be holding the obligatory Mike Piazza "I'm still not gay" press conference following the ceremonies.

When you're a Met,
You're a Met all the way
From your first cigarette
To your last dyin' day.

When you're a Met,
If the spit hits the fan,
You got brothers around,
You're a family man!

Staying with the broadway theme: Next week they will have "The Sound of Music" playing
1. How deal with a problem like Minaya.
2. We are 23 going on 24 years without a championship.
3. Last but not least, they bid a Farewell to Shae for the last time, Von Tramp style.
