Mass was angling to get a picture with Clinton on April 15, 1997 — the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s historic first major league game.
Accompanied by two female college interns, the costumed Mass set off in search of his presidential prey: “The holy grail for all mascots — a photo op and meet and greet with a sitting President,” he wrote.
His hopes were soon crushed by the Secret Service agent sporting a dark suit and a darker mood.
Mass recalled the agent started eyeballing him after Mr. Met’s head failed to fit through an on-field metal detector.
In fairness, RMc, that's only two known crises over a 17-year span.
Well, he also had to watch the Mets
Watching a Secret Service sniper take out Mr Met in 1997 very well might have been the most entertaining thing to have occurred at Shea Stadium in nearly a decade.
