Did a little actual work today as I ventured to Queens for an appearance by Mets third baseman David Wright. I’m covering both teams this week.
David was meeting with kids at the Ronald McDonald House. He spoke to reporters before and after, mostly about the Super Bowl and Johan Santana. He likes the Giants and Santana, as it turns out.
I got to know David when I covered the Mets. One of his brothers attends Virginia Tech and we talked about the Yankees playing there in March. “I’m jealous,” he said. “I wish that were us. It’s nice of the Yankees to do that.”
David said he heard that all the tickets would be reserved for students. “It’s a big deal on campus that they’re coming,” he said.
I wanted to ask David if he planned to join John Franco on Pros vs. Joes on Spike but didn’t have the chance.
