Sure, team execs had no way of knowing the Mets would be putting the finishing touches on a SECOND CONSECUTIVE COLLAPSE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS during the final game at Shea. But they should have (they are familiar with the team's history, right?), and even if they thought the team was going to win, wouldn't they want the post-game celebrations to be about the current team? Best case scenario is grandpa's funeral after the wedding; worst case is grandpa's funeral after grandma's funeral. It's the Mets, we'll let you guess which scenario occurred.
