We’re inside of an hour before first pitch. The buzz isn’t there, yet, mostly because Shea is half empty. The video board is running Met quotes talking about the fan support. Only a slight response when the quotes are posted. It’s like they want to get the crowd going. It’s not working. Neither is playing The Who cranked up.
And, of all songs, couldn’t they have picked one without a built in punch line. “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” There’s a lot going on there, especially if the Mets do a header tonight.
People aren’t stupid. They don’t need to be told to cheer and when to make noise. Score some runs and this place will be plenty loud without any prompting.
