The Syracuse Mets put out a call for photographs that will be used for life-sized seat fillers at NBT Bank Stadium once their Triple-A baseball season starts come May.
You’ve seen them at various major league and college sports if you’ve watched events on TV throughout our time of COVID-19, I assume.
Our minor-league team that polished players for the New York Mets will be allowed to welcome a 20 percent capacity into the ballpark this season. Last season was scrapped altogether. We’re enthusiastic for the return. We’ll attempt to be there for opening day, yes.
But first we coughed up the $50 bucks and sent in the photo for our devoted dog Ellie B.
She has attended Bark in the Park and marched around the field with us, dutifully sitting in the stands afterward and paying as much attention to the game as a cherished rescue mutt can muster.
Anyway, the money goes toward COVID-19 relief in the community.
Let’s Go Mets.

She’s our good one, Kerbey.
FYI: Anheuser-Busch’s first batch of Dog Brew, an alcohol-free “beer” actually made from bone broth, sold out within 24 hours last year, and the company is now looking for a canine to help expand the line of offerings. The dog will be paid $20,000 to become “chief tasting officer” and will be responsible for “taste-testing, quality control, and fulfilling duties as an ambassador for the product.” The dog will also become a “featured creator” for Busch’s social media. Perks of the position include pet insurance and a free supply of Dog Brew. Owners interested in getting their pets considered for the position should post photos of their dogs on social media along with a description of their qualifications and the hashtag #BuschCTOcontest. “We’re excited to give one qualified canine a real, paying job and to tap into their insider knowledge of our target consumer to expand Busch Dog Brew in 2021,” said a company rep.
Ellie B does look perfect in this photo, Mike!
Haha…perfect! Let’s Go Mutts, er… Mets!
Remember back in the day when the Mets had a dog mascot by the name of Homer, Mike? There is a picture of the mutt in the Hall of Fame!
Of course she’s ellie-gible to watch the games, Mark! ~ヾ(＾∇＾)
I’m sorry she doesn’t look more Ellie-gant, Patricia!
