With the New York Mets entering their final season at Shea Stadium, join former Mets All-Stars Keith Hernandez, Darryl Strawberry and Ron Darling as they reminisce about the historic stadium, the 1986 championship season and other favorite memories. Get an exclusive sneak peek of segments from the documentary
Shea Goodbye: 45 Years of Amazin’, which premieres on SNY on September 27. Mets play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen moderates.

Loge13 Overlord Ron Hunt received the following flawed promotion/contest:

Shea Stadium Trivia Challenge
Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets, will close its doors after the current baseball season. For 45 years it has been the site of Amazin' memories. On September 7, Mets legends Keith Hernandez, Darryl Strawberry and Ron Darling will share their own in a conversation moderated by Mets play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen at the 92nd Street Y.

It wasn't all home runs and "a little roller up along first" in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series that made Shea special. In 1965, a year after Shea opened, the Beatles became the first pop group to play a concert at a U.S. sports stadium. From the following list, who did not play a concert at Shea Stadium?
A) The Who
B) Aerosmith
C) Janis Joplin
D) Jimi Hendrix
E) The Rolling Stones

Answer the Challenge
One lucky winner chosen at random will win two tickets to the event in question.

Careful readers of Loge13 may notice the problem with this quiz. Can you guess?
