The Zionist Conspiracy

I've been to three Mets games this season. So far, I have three issues with Citi Field:
1. It's difficult to see the scoreboard from the first base side.
2. If you're sitting on the first base side, it's very difficult to see down the right field line. If you're sitting on the third base side, it's difficult to see down the left field line.
3. Most importantly, the place is pretty dead. There are all kinds of things to do, places to eat. As a result, a lot of people don't bother watching the game.
Even in an early season game, places like Shea, MSG, and Giants Stadium have always come alive at key junctures in a game. Thus far, that does not appear to be the case with Citi Field.
Perhaps things will improve later in the season. But it won't be good if the Mets are in a pennant race in September and Shake Shack is still jammed.
