I need to preface this post by saying that in 2004 – 05 I worked for the New York Mets, not the greatest of times, but a big time learning experience. I also want to emphasize again that this is not a political blog, but sport and society are intertwined. This also could be interpreted as another baseball bashing, so be it. When I found out that Citibank, the latest financial institution to go on corporate welfare is going ahead and paying $400 million for naming rights to the Mets new stadium I went ballistic. This is wrong, that is your money and my money they are spending. Just think how many teachers and mortgages that could be funded for that money. The Mets owners are fiddling while Rome is burning. Having caught their act for almost a year I must say I am not surprised. Shame on you!
