Direct quote from my own brain/fingers on November 9, 2015: “The soda in Citi Field needs to change. Start serving Coca Cola products, and this team has a better chance at winning. The Mets side with Sierra Mist over Sprite, Pepsi over Coke, and losing over winning.”
It’s about time I start getting some credit for all of these brilliant ideas. Realistically I should get some sort of royalty deal, but a simple “thank you” would suffice. But I can’t take too much credit here. Anyone with a brain could have put 2 and 2 together and understand that the Mets are losers because Pepsi is a loser. Today the Mets may have finally realized that money talks. A high quality product is of the utmost importance, and that goes for the soda at the concession stands just as much as it does the team on the field.
Quick side note that’s unrelated but maybe not so unrelated. Mets GM Sandy Alderson was diagnosed with cancer today. I wish him the best of luck and health moving forward, and the doctors are saying it’s very treatable so I have no doubts the Baseball Maverick will be continuing his stint with the Mets for the forseeable future. I am in no way discrediting his diagnosis or the severity of it, but I don’t think it’s crazy to think that Alderson pulled the trigger on this Coke thing today. Perhaps he realized that he can’t take anything for granted and he’s gotta give the Mets fanbase better soda and a championship while he still can.
Let’s go Sandy Alderson, Let’s go Coca Cola, and Let’s go Mets.
