I just put two and two together. The Mets’ new stadium will be called Citi Park. Citigroup, Inc. bought the naming rights to the stadium back in 2006 for $20 million a year for 20 years. That’s $400 million total for those of you, like me, who can’t do math.
Yes, that’s the same Citigroup getting “bailed out” for about $300 billion by the federal government. Federal government spending = taxpayer dollars.
That means that we, the taxpayers, are helping Citigroup fund the naming of the New York Mets’ stadium. What a great investment.
I want my money back.
