Well it's been a rough year for Met fans...and pretty much everyone else too.
Shea Stadium turned out to be an unlikely metaphor for 2008. A beloved and perfectly fine ballpark was collapsed to make room for a smaller, more expensive yard with a badly timed name. Shea is now in pieces, much like our economy, and it's time to clean up the mess and move on. You wouldn't know it from the Yankees bursting payroll but things are still pretty bleak. Here's hoping we're sitting at the bottom of the hole now and can start climbing our way out in 2009.
Thanks for hanging in section Loge13 this year. Lets do it all over again next year. To lighten the mood, here is a bit of the greatest secular Christmas tune of all time. Excuse the bits of bad language; you know how we Irish get.
