Meet the Mets

Mets churros

It’s been a crazy spring for me personally (was best man in my brother’s wedding, traveled to Israel for a best friend’s wedding, sold my house, moved into a new apartment — and that was just¬†March!), and now I’ve got some big news professionally.

Growing up a New York Mets fan, I’m so pumped to announce I’m joining the team this season as a gameday host. You’ll see me at every home game on the Citi Vision board, doing everything from eating churros pregame to asking fans trivia questions between innings.

Can’t begin to explain how excited I am to be back in the big leagues after a couple seasons, so make sure to say hi if you see me at the park!

Mike in a Minute: MLB FoodFest

I went to the first-annual MLB FoodFest¬†this weekend, and tried as many different ballpark foods as I could in 2 hours. Every dish got a one-word review. Mostly because that’s all I had time for between bites.

Looking back, my favorites were:

  1. Arizona Diamondbacks: Churro Dog
  2. Texas Rangers: Buffalo fried chicken glazed donut sandwich
  3. Houston Astros: Fried chicken and mashed potato waffle cone

VERY mad they ran out of Florida Marlins bacon-wrapped plantains. Now I’ve gotta go back next year.
