NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Ronnie from Danbury, Conn., says it took him three hours to drive to Queens for the New York Mets’ season opener on Monday.
But that was only the beginning. Ronnie told WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show on Tuesday that the parking situation at Citi Field was so bad that he never even made it to the gates.
“Yesterday was a freakin’ ridiculous fiasco,” he said. “When we got there, the entire road around Citi Field was a parking lot. Nobody could get into the stadium, and that’s why there was nobody there (for first pitch).”
“By the time we could have maybe parked at the tennis center and bused in, it was already the fourth inning,” he added.
