— Days Without Shea —

During the hiatus, we did try and bring the kiddies and bring the wife to a Met game. Unfortunately, it was Thursday’s washout against the Cardinals. Unlike previous rainy nights when the Mets started three hours late and played through the slop, this time the game was called before 8:00. The kids experienced their first rain out, which meant we did alot of exploring of Shea. And took lots of photos that we’ll post over the next few days.

As previously mentioned, the Mets have built a replica of a Citi Field luxury box, which also serves as a business office where they sign up new season-ticket holders. And of course, they built it right at the entrance to Loge13 (we appreciate the irony). For the first time this season, there were people in the box and signing up. Looks like business is booming…which means for all us partial-plan holders, our days are numbered.

But enough gloom talk. Here is some video of the construction progress on the
Citi Field Rotunda, as of June 28th:

The progress is astounding, especially when compared to where they were only a month ago,
on MAY 30, 2007:

And where they were on April 30, 2007:

Run all three videos at the same time to compare the progress.

We’ll keep documenting the rise of Citi Field and the unnecessary death of Shea Stadium…and our season-tickets.
