M-E-T-S Mets, Mets, Mets!

We are finally nearing home plate with the completion of the new Met's Stadium. The latest additions? An eye to the environment. While we aren’t changing the team color to green just yet, included in the designs for the new Stadium are a “green roof” on the administration building, recycled steel throughout the core of the stadium, low-flow plumbing and energy efficient lighting for the field. The new stadium, dubbed Citi Field, is set to open for the 2009 season.

In other Mets news, Shea Stadium has announced that their final 2008 season will officially be designated a “Smoke Free Zone”. No longer will smokers have the luxury of smoking butts throughout the Stadium, including the ramps. Like the rest of New York City, smokers will be summoned to go great measures to get their smoke on – Limited to a reserved area outside of the Stadium gates. My heart pours out to you, old faithful smoker, as not even a Triple Grand Slam can keep you in your seat to enjoy your last season at Shea.
