Someone named "metsbabe7" created a video tribute to Shea Stadium and Citi Field. Some cool photos and moments, including a glimpse of those wonderfully awful Houston Astros uniforms of the 1970's:
We'll be seeing more of these as the execution date comes closer.
This video and comments we've read online and heard in Loge13 at Shea represent the opinion of a substantial number of fans. They are sad to see Shea go but welcome the sleek, retro intimacy of the new field. And it does look purty.
But these fans may be overlooking one tragic point: they ain't going to be seeing much of Citi Field...at least from the inside.
The stadium holds substantially less people than Shea and ticket plans are being devised to squeeze out the common fan altogether. I hope I'm wrong but given how the long-time season ticket holders of Loge13 are being treated atm, I'm afraid I'm right.
