Upon a second viewing of this past Sunday’s episode of “Mad Men,” it appears Don Draper insulted our beloved New York Mets. This was the conversation he had with his neighbor:
Arnold: I’ve been meaning to knock on your door anyway, you know, catch a game or something. I get baseball tickets, mostly the Mets.
Don: Well, I’m glad you didn’t.
Was this a dig at the Mets, that he’s glad he wasn’t asked to go to a game in Flushing? It certainly seems so.
What he doesn’t know is that the Mets would soon be the hottest ticket in town. This conversation took place in 1968 in “Mad Men” time. Don will be begging for a ticket in 1969!
He certainly won’t get one from Arnold; Don is sleeping with his wife, and he’s bound to find out sooner or later. Let’s hope it is before the World Series — why waste a ticket on a scoundrel like Don?
