    Must also be a surreal day for those who built the beast to see it gone from the sky now...

    While I agree with your comment, Island .... lets not let the sorrow of today's happenings spew into our posts today (as I MYSELF learned today by replying back to JJJ's assinine request for a photo just MINUTES after the ramps had fallen!)

    Demolition

    In accordance with New York City law, Shea Stadium is currently being dismantled, rather than imploded.[17] Stadium fragments and memorabilia were sold to fans; the company with the rights to sell memorabilia was given two weeks after the final game to remove seats, signage and other potentially saleable/collectable items before demolition was to begin. The seats were the first ($869 per pair plus tax, a combination of '86 & '69), followed by other memorabilia such as the foul poles, dugouts and other equipment. The final piece of exterior ramps was brought down on February 18, 2009 to complete the demolition project.

    [edit] 2008
    Demolition in progress, November 2008

    After salvaging operations concluded, actual demolition of the ballpark began on October 14. On October 18, the scoreboard in right field was demolished, with the bleachers, batter's eye and bullpens soon to follow. [18]

    By November 10, the field, dugouts and the rest of the field level seats had been demolished. [19]

    By mid-December, all of the Loge level seats and a good portion of the Mezzanine level seating were gone as well, leaving only the outer shell remaining.

    ===2009===

    Demolition work on the upper deck began by January 1st. By January 2, 2009, all that remained of sections 26-48 of the upper deck were the steel framework. By January 8, the steel framework for sections 36-48 of the upper deck had been completely removed; all that remained of the "Live & In Person" advertising banner at the top above Gate A was the extreme right portion with the Shea Stadium Final Season logo. As of January 15, the far left field portion of Shea was completely demolished and the left field upper deck (sections 25-47) was stripped to its steel framework. The remaining letters at the top of the ballpark behind home plate ("ADIUM") were taken down on January 21. Approximately two-thirds of the stadium's outer superstructure was gone by January 24.

    On January 31, Mets fans all over New York came to Shea for one final farewell to Shea Stadium. Fans took a tour of the site, told stories, and sang songs.[20] The last remaining section of seats were demolished on February 17, and the remaining structure (two sections of ramps) was torn down on February 18.

    Why would you come troll over here and post that ? We did not try to find a Louisville thread and remind you that the St Louis Cardinals thought your city was such a dump that their AAA team left and went to Memphis. (Were you even there when the Redbirds drew over a million???) .....losing a team to Memphis, now that's rich.

(Shea Stadium, Qualcomm Stadium, Renovated Yankee Stadium) And even in 1996, which was clinched at Yankee Stadium, Games 3 through 5 were played in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, which has long since been demolished.
    And, they have A-Rod so they are definitely cursed!

    Confession time:

    After a brutal Mets loss I said that G*d hates the Mets at Shea Stadium. Whether he does or not I may never know, but I regret saying it.

    Goodbye Shea


    D-Rex!

    Funny! One of our columnist at The PD used that line a couple months ago, and the sports editor got all these calls from readers! He didn't know the reference and went off on the copy desk for not catching the "error."
