while I don't disagree with Paul's sentiment, I'm kind of curious where the field will actually be. I remember the Mets trashing Shea because it was a dual purpose stadium that "didn't fit either (purpose) well". Now their "baseball only" stadium is being multipurposed.

Let's see if they can out draw the Mets from September with this football game.

Paul - you're killing me, great line & thought. Had me lol for minutes.

Who among us can hear Jerry Manual complaining when someone gets hurt early next because of the replacement grass not taking hold:

" Oh, definitely, you know they ripped up the field pretty good when those football games were here after the season"
