These are dark days indeed for Met fans. Our team is fading fast while dear, sweet Shea silently bears witness to the witless baseball played within its doomed confines.
Meanwhile, the folks over at Mathematicallyalive.com continue work on their new documentary of Shea’s faithful. This note got buried in my in-box but I hope some Loge 13’ers can make it anyway:
3 Wins in a row and we're back to .500!
Normally that wouldn't be cause to celebrate, but this young season has already taken it's toll on most Mets fans. More importantly, it's a reason to smile and remember the good times at Shea. There is still some magic left in the building, and in this final season new memories will be made. That's why we're putting together the recollections of Mets fans in a project we're titling, "Heckuva Day: Stories from Shea." Whether it was Buckner's goof, Ventura's blast, or Tom Terrific and his near perfection, we want to hear your story. What is your most memorable moment at the ballpark in Flushing? Maybe it was the 1st time you saw Dave Kingman take batting practice, or the last time Johnny Franco left the mound. Every story will make the cut, and every story is unique.
