Lady Gaga inspired night for Wright

Not sure what to even say about this, so you can just read about it and draw your own conclusions. Here's the release from the Mets: 

The New York Mets today announced “Mets Fans Go Gaga for Wright” Night this Wednesday, June 23 at Citi Field to send David Wright to the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

 

The first 20,000 fans attending the 7:10 p.m. game between the Mets and Detroit Tigers will receive a blue “Make Wright #1” foam finger, encouraging fans to use the right finger and vote for Wright as the National League’s starting third baseman July 13 in Anaheim.
