New York Mets Won't Be First in New Ballpark!!

I am not a season ticket holder. I am going to do everything in my power to get tickets to opening day at Citi Field, but honestly, is it opening day at Citi Field?

On Mar. 29, before the Mets are even in town, St Johns baseball will be playing a game at Citi Field. This is fine by me, but not before the Mets do; this is the Mets' new stadium. They should be the first ones to play in it.

St. Johns baseball has no business going in the record books as the first team to play in Citi Field. As a die hard Mets fan, I think this is wrong and it only seems right for the Mets new ballpark to be played by the Mets in the first game to bless it, don't you think?
