Last night, Mr. Met gave us the highlight of the New York Mets’ season when he gave the finger to a fan. It was fun and good, mostly because the visual of a grinning Mr. Met giving some jamoke the finger is a pleasing visual, and also because it was no doubt deserved. Unfortunately, the Mets were not so tickled, and after issuing an apology, they have reportedly removed the person who was inside the Mr. Met costume from Mr. Met duty.
From the AP:
A Mets official told The Associated Press more than one person wears the Mr. Met costume during each season, and the person who donned it Wednesday night will not do so again. The Mets official spoke on condition of anonymity because the statement from the organization was the team’s only authorized comment.
This is crap! The Mr. Met who is sassy enough to flip the bird is clearly the best Mr. Met, and should be wearing the costume at every game from here on out.
