How can they enforce the lifetime ban anyway? It's not like Citi Field has Vegas-style facial recognition security. Do they?

For the record, the Nationals and the Braves each have more wins at CitiField since the All-Star break (5) than the Mets do (4).

Actually, the Nats have six wins at CitiField since the ASB.

There are plenty of other places to get Shake Shack. None have a shorter line at this point, though.

They apparently managed to keep Abe Attell out of ballparks after his role in setting up the Black Sox Scandal

I don't know what Shake Shack is, but that was funny.

You remember that episode of 'Eastbound & Down' when Kenny Powers punches his biggest fan in the face? Yeah, this made me think of that.

Crap. Forgot to update this since I first saw the stat before the game on Wednesday. Thanks!

Meh, they probably can't... but if he does get caught at a game he'll face more serious legal ramifications.  So its now his risk.

Brutal.

We need more field rushes, not less. The classic images of jubilant fans running onto a field to celebrate will never again be seen because he most diehard fans are punished for expressing themselves. Like the waffle guy at the Leafs game. Really just so stupid. I think the Mets should scrap this.

That sucks. BOOOOO!!!!

Yeah, let's put the players at risk of maniacs who enter the stadium through a bare minimum of security.

He's still wearing jorts, which to my mind means he has learned nothing from this entire episode.

Amazing burger joint here in NY. Started only as a shack in Madison Square Park where people line up for like 45 minutes and up, which isn't such a bad thing if it's nice out. Now they have a few locations around the city, including one at Citi Field, and they all involve at least a bit of a wait. I know there's going to be one on Long Island and I think they opened a Philly location too.

And he's right. Attendance has been sparse, and for good reason. But that said, I came into the season thinking 70-75 wins, and that's about the pace they're on. Throw in breaking the no-hitter curse (even though I missed it) and I can deal.

They have a location in Nationals Park, so you can have a good burger and watch a good team at the same time.

"punished" by never being allowed to see a Mets home game ever again.

In other news, incidents of Mets fans rushing the field increase.

You sound Republican. You could always tase 'em like they do in Philly.

Security in Phoenix is as strict as getting on an airplane. At the NFL games, they even pat you down. Went to see the A's-Diamondbacks series, and they wouldn't let me take an unopened Gatorade bottle in, that I'd bought 50 feet from their stadium entrance. Fark 'em. I'm willing to take my chances with someone armed with a Gatorade bottle.

Well security is much more lax at Yankee Stadium then. They do a minimal pat down and bag inspection. No, I can't bring in a bottle from outside the stadium, but I could have put anything in my sock and gotten in without issue.

I have no idea how what I said "sounds Republican" but the point is, the field is for the players, the stands are for the spectators. In case you haven't noticed, people are farking insane. If I were a team owner, I wouldn't want to subject my investment to the whims of lunatics.

On the one hand, the best moments in sports are when people rush the field/court after a huge win. On the other hand, yeah, I can see where a bunch of uptight billionaires would fear one of their millionaires getting hurt, because the rabble are always out to get them.

After all, players often get hurt when fans storm the court/field in college sports.

I DO get most of your points, and I was kidding about sounding Republican. I've had you favorited forever. However I do get tired of having to prove my innocence every time I enter a public venue. I used to go to A's day games with Kahlua in baby bottles for my coffee. If questioned, I'd just tell them that my imaginary wife was already in the bleachers with my imaginary baby. I doubt I could get away with that now (maybe if I told them it was my GRANDchild).

I dunno about a lifetime ban, but I could see ten years banishment. People grow up with time. I saw Santana throw a 2-hit shutout against the Dodgers (when he was still with Minnesota) from right behind home plate, and hell, I wanted to run out on the field to congratulate him.

That has been a huge issue. I remember the dark days of American athletics when sports figures were gang raped, stabbed, and had their shoelaces maliciously tied together after huge wins when the drunken maniacal "fans" would rush the field.

You know what sucked about that incident? Not a single White Sox player helped Tom Gamboa. They stood and watched. That was chickenshiat.

If the consessions outside Fenway still exist as I remember, it's just a turnstyle. Someone take one for the team and tell me if they UFIA?
