How To Give David Wright His C

He's the Mets Captain in all but nameWe know David Wright is already the captain, if only unofficially, but it’d be nice to get him the official title.  I thought of a fun way to possibly do it.

 

There is a 50% chance that one of the local hockey teams is going to win the Stanley Cup.  So if this comes to pass, have that team bring the Cup to Citi Field for the Mets to see and have the captain, either Zach Parise of the Devils or Ryan Callahan of the Rangers, present David Wright with a Mets jersey with a ‘C’ on it.

 

Clearly as an Islanders fan I’m rooting against the Rangers and am not sure I really want the Devils to continue on and win it all either, but from a New York City standpoint I think this would be a fun way to do it.  It wouldn’t have the same impact without the Cup, but you could probably have one of them do it anyway if you wanted to make pomp and circumstance out of it.

  • You give David Wright his “C” when the Mets announce his new contract (whenever that’s going to happen.) Cute hockey promotion tie-in optional.

  • Hockey idea is cool. But I am also an Islanders fan so having a Ranger or Devil present would leave a bad taste in my mouth.
    And I’m rooting for the Devils to win now and lose the Cup. At least the Devils have a good owner.
