Optimistic Mets Fan


Citi Field Borough Race

February 12th, 2010 by Ceetar in Baseball, Citi Field, Mets

Metsblog made a post about the possibility of the Mets doing a Citi Field race, similar to the Presidents Race in Washington or the Sausage Race in Milwaukee.  I think since Citi Field was built with New York City in mind and the name of the park implies New York City, that it should have the entire city in mind.  After all the Mets represent New York baseball and all its history.

My idea, which was inspired by a segment I heard Joe and Evan do on the midday WFAN show, is to have a 5-party race including something from each borough of New York.

In this Borough Race:

Queens would be represented by Mr. Met.

Staten Island would be represented by the Staten Island Ferry.

Manhattan would be represented by a yellow taxi cab.

Brooklyn would be represented by Sandy the Seagull, the Brooklyn Cyclones mascot.

The Bronx would be represented by a Zoo animal.  An orange Cheetah would work well.

The alternative would be to represent the Bronx with a pinstriped New York Highlander baseball player that would play the Teddy Roosevelt role and never, ever, win the race.
