Thirty out of thirty.
A sampling of parks ranked ahead of Shea:
- Keyspan Park
- Central Park
- Hiram Bithorn Stadium
- Lamade Stadium (Williamsport, PA)
- Maksimir Stadium (Zagreb)
- Troy Glaus Field (at right)
- Don McBride Stadium
I'll keep this in mind as I travel through my "barren neighborhood", and pay top tier money to sit in the "concrete mess" that is Shea Stadium on...a "charmless park in a charmless neighborhood"...on Thursday afternoon.
***Then there's this: Fernando Ferrer (posing as a Yankee fan) and Anthony Weiner (using the Mets for political gain) are using this baseball blood war to further their campaign for mayor of New York.
Please boys, leave us out of it. You want to have snippy political arguments about issues that you're making up anyway? Fine. But until you can name the shortstop which preceded Derek Jeter...until you can name me the winning pitcher in the first regular season matchup in Subway Series history, until you learn to spell Telgheder, Monbouqette, or Spehr, then don't involve us in your made for local television arguments. Thank you.
