The New York Mets on National Review Online

Here's a great piece that Walter sent in a few weeks back. If you're a Mets fan passionate enough to spend time on Mets Police, this is right up your alley.

Here's a taste:

Dad took us to our first game at Shea Stadium in 1967. It was a sparkling new ballpark, opened in Flushing, near the site of the World’s Fair, in 1964. Even though the outside was never finished, back then it didn’t seem anything like the eyesore it appears to be when I see it today. Of course, by now, almost 40 years later, I’ve been to Yankee Stadium for a World Series game—and any honest baseball fan will tell you everything looks like an eyesore after you’ve been to the House that Ruth Built for the Fall Classic. But in 1967, I was quite sure Shea Stadium was heaven. And I still think I was right.

Now go read the entire piece.

Management should really consider something along the lines of the coupons on the Dellwood milk containers again. If not enabling a free ticket, at least a heavily discounted one.
Those coupons were basically the only way I got out to Shea during my childhood.
