METS IN BLACK: PROTECTING SHEA FROM THE SCUM OF THE UNIVERSE

          The Mets, "in an effort to be trendier and to appeal to
     today's kid-driven sports fashion market," will introduce
     black into the color schemes of their uniforms this spring,
     according to David Waldstein of the N.Y. POST.  The team
     will wear an "alternate black hat" with a blue brim and a
     blue and orange "NY" logo, and "will also wear a black shirt
     at times."  Mets VP & General Counsel David Howard said that
     there "is no set time" when the Mets will wear the new look,

     but added, "We want to be perceived as hip and updated to
     kids.  When kids walk around wearing your logo, it's like
     having a walking billboard" (N.Y. POST, 12/16).
