Mets fans greeted Mayor de Blasio with hearty Bronx cheers on Monday, before he left early on the Amazins bitter Opening Day loss.
Donning a pinstripe home white jersey and blue Mets cap over dress pants, de Blasio was loudly booed twice by Flushing faithful once as he was announced and then again as he left the Citi Field diamond.
The wave of boos didnt get to de Blasio, who kept his cool, kicked and delivered from just in front of the pitchers mound.
De Blasio wearing a No. 6 Mets jersey with his name on the back tossed a strike to Mets catcher Travis dArnaud, and flashed a relieved grin that he delivered a corner-painting, Opening Day pitch.
He played off the boos, suggesting that his supporters might have been too cold to cheer.
As for the response of the crowd, I think everyone is going to be too cold to respond, de Blasio said, before the Mets 9-7 loss in 10 innings to the Washington Nationals.
But whatever it is it is, Im a sports fan. Sports fans have a right to express themselves any way they want.

......say the people who probably didn’t bother to vote.
Wow, opening day boos!!!!!!!!!!!!
That rite of passage for NY politican right Sports fans boo at you
This guy has had no honeymoon at all. Also, Mets fans are generally Democrats. Even NYC baseball is politicized.
Eff ‘em. They could have voted someone else in. As Pelosi said.....embrace the suck.
Exactly. Practically nobody in NYC voted in that election. And now they see just what that’s gotten them.
That’s strange. Mets fans are usually so polite...
Chet Lemon threw out the first pitch in Detroit today.
Great game that ended with a walk off single.
Well, even as he was sworn in, "his" people were dumping on Bloomie.
Then, he starts mouthing off about stopping the horse carriages, raising taxes, and something about dropping schools that actually give lower income kids willing to do school work a way off the liberal plantation and join civilization.
I’m not exactly sure what your sentence means.
How gay is that!
They woke up too late. This dude is going to do a toll on NYC. 10 times worse then that liberal Bloomberg.
People may “Boo” them as soon as the election is over, but democrats still keep getting elected and reelected.
He deserves all the abuse he can get. But I hate Bloomberg just as much.
Yeah, but guess what?
He’s the boss.
Everybody hates Bill de Blasio.
Lassie came running up to Timmy.
“Bark! Bark! Bark!”, said Lassie.
“I know”, said Timmy. “We all hate Bill de Blasio. What kind of man makes up his own name and puts a ‘de’ in it?”
And...he will still win re election in a land slide....big deal
The choices were probably not worth the time to turnout. If Wilhelm keeps up the horrible work, the next participation rate might be a lot different if the right opponent comes along.
Most of the crowd probably voted for him. They only have themselves to blame. He isn’t doing a darn thing he didn’t say he would do before the election.
