Opening Night at Citi Field

I was at Citi Field last night when the Mets opened up their new stadium. I’ve been working with the Mets to create a piece of artwork to celebrate the milestone, but i had not actually seen the stadium in person before last night. It was INCREDIBLE! There was a level of excitement that you just can’t describe. It was like the building was going to bust open….and people were walking around with cameras…i’ve never seen so many cameras…taking pictures of the walls, the rotunda, even the plaques in the ground! And the food! The wonderful food….they’ve arranged the stadium so that on every level, the smells are incredible. I can’t even tell you what was being served but it wasn’t just hot dogs and peanuts. It’s a cozy building too. You felt like you were at home watching the game in your livingroom…very homey…it was really nice.

I was invited to Jeff Wilpon’s pre-game reception and while there, i had the opportunity to meet Governor David Paterson and Ed Charles, a member of the 1969 World Championship team…see the pics below….The Wilpons have done a fantastic job….i can’t tell you exactly when or with whom yet, but rumor has it that i’ll be there before the end of the month to “unveil” my artwork and sign posters with a very popular former Mets player…that’s just a hint…from me to you! :-)

Enjoy!

Charles
