Shea Stadium: The Board Game

Off days and rainouts stink.

What is a Met fan to do on those lonely off days and rainouts during April besides wonder why Willie Randolph consistently mismanages his bullpen?

Well now, you can combine off-day fun with Shea Stadium nostalgia with a great new board game titled: "Shea Stadium: The Board Game"! Can you get through a day at Shea without being pinched by the ushers, buying a cold knish, getting into an fistfight with a Yankee fan, or seeing Carlos Beltran strike out in a big spot? Now, you can experience the fun, excitement, and frustration of seeing the Mets at Shea Stadium from the comfort of your own living room! So help celebrate the final season at Shea Stadium with this addicting board game!

An Absolute Classic Post. One of the all time favorites. Can I get a real copy of the board game? As long as it is not made in China with lead paint on the pieces.

Good stuff.

You need to do a Wii interactive version of the game where you can try to hit an Adam Wainwright curveball in Game 7 with two outs in the ninth and the tying runs on.

Too hard to remove it from the original board. It was the perfect excuse for a David Wells joke.

gotcha... i saw the link to the original now. I live in buffalo and Mighty is an institution here (i.e. Nathan’s) Couldn’t figure out how it related to the Mets.

Nice. I like that there's not one, but two shots at Heilman.

Only one mention of the crappy music at Shea?

What about the water leaking down on your seat from the level above?

Or the airplane rumbling over head for ten minutes?
