— Days Without Shea —

They say you can't get blood from a stone.

But apparently you can get Met tickets for blood.

A co-worker just told me she got a call from NYC blood bank today. She was asked to donate platelets. And as incentive, if she came in during the next month, she would receive two free Mets tickets!

Has anyone else heard of this? I knew the Wilpons were bleeding money but this is ridiculous!

Nothing new - I remember getting tickets for donating blood during the last season at Shea, when sales were considered good.

The Mets do this every year even since the Shea Days...... they do an annual blood drive in front of the stadium and in return the donors get two tickets to select games

Thanks. I will report back to my co-worker, who is, of course, a Yankee fan and may have been just trying to get my blood boiling.

A buddy of mine received 2 free tickets last year for donating blood we sat 3 rows from the field in section 128.
