Amazing to think that a few decades later, the parking lot and the ballpark would switch places. Even though I get a thrill whenever I have a chance to go on the field or the warning track at Citi, I can't help but tell myself that I'm on land that used to be a parking lot.

I wonder what itís like after death. Probíly itís like it is bífore birth. Is it nothing? Non-existence? Thatís not hard tíunderstand, but itís hard for people tíaccept. Itís hard for them to imagine not existing because all of their memories are of their existence, not non-existence. Aní people ainít too crazy about the idea of themselves not existing. - Harvey Pekar, ďShort Weekend: A Story About the Cosmic and the Ordinary,Ē American Splendor #3, 1978.
