My infant nephew has not yet been to a Mets game but I am certain his father already considers him to be a fan which is why I'm considering buying him a brick that will be part of the "fanwalk" at Citi Field. Did you take a breath while reading that?
"Fans will be able to recognize their family, friends and favorite Mets moments through lasting tributes engraved directly onto the bricks of the plaza outside of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda," says the Mets website. Recognize? Was that the best word to use? Anyway, I think the last thing way-too-gigantic Citi needs is a stadium to manage, but that's just me.
4X8 bricks are $195 plus tax (3 lines of text; 15 characters per line)
8X8 bricks are $340 plus tax (6 lines of text)
8X8 logo bricks are $395 plus tax (logo + 4 lines of text)
Call 1-877-NYM-WALK (696-9255) or e-mail Fanwalk@nymets.com for more info.
They've already sold "tons" and do not know the limit. Great move, Citi; don't tell the phone salespeople how many bricks are available. Genius.
