When your team kicks off the season with a three-game sweep of a division rival, you do your best to keep them happy. What’s the best way to keep 25 grown men happy after they just delivered on the field for three games? Greasy fast food burgers is a start. On Sunday after their 7-5 victory over Atlanta, City Field’s Shake Shack outlet did their best to congratulate the Mets. Rumor has it the Shake Shack is in high demand at Citi Field, but the photo above that Mets team chef Theresa Corderi tweeted shows us that the restaurant took the time to ship over a tray of fresh burgers to the winning team.
I’m sure the team appreciated it after all the hard work they put in, but as the Red Sox can tell you fast food during and after games isn’t the best way to sustain winning. The Shake Shack should probably just make this an April thing. Then again, crap food seems to work just fine for Justin Verlander.
