How about a free boat ride to Mets games over the next two weeks? Yes, New York Water Taxi says they're for the U.S. Open
in Flushing, but if you don't mind a bit of a walk that's still a free boat (and bus!) ride
to the near vicinity of Citi Field, and it only takes 35 minutes. Then, for their next home stand versus the Cubs on September 4-6, you can ride in comfort to watch what's left of the Mets (now minus Oliver Perez
, who's out for the year with knee trouble) cruise into last place. So at least something about the experience will be pleasant! The boats will also be serving free Powerade.
