Last time I was at Citi Field, we sat in the Pepsi Porch.

It's not a bad vantage point at all for watching a game. The vibe is even better. It's like your own private deck for the game. What most intrigued me was the grassy knoll beneath the right field scoreboard.

Wouldn't this be a great spot for tomato plants? Or maybe they could round up the old stray cats of Shea Stadium and let them roam free here.

Better yet, a MEGA SLIDE AND SLIDE for kids. Between this idea and the Pu-Pu Platter partial ticket plan, I gotta say I'm on a roll.

Any other ideas for the Plains of Citi Field? Share them here.

Love those pics. Need more quirky discoveries like that to make the new place seem like home. Which BTW it does not. And the Days without Shea Time clock at the top of the page just about broke my heart. At least somebody feels the same way I do about the place. I miss it on a daily basis. And my kid has no interest whatsoever to step foot in Greedi-Field.

That looks very cool, less formal and planned like the rest of the park.

Read today (Newsday) that the Mets are adding a video board in right field, probably because of the poor angle, shown here, of the main boards.

I'm looking forward to sitting in the Porch for the 1969 WS Reunion and celebration v. the Phils on 8/22.

Hopefully we'll be in contention...

How about putting some deck chairs out there and making it "CitiBeach"? With that view of the bay, what a great place to sun!
