Edith Bunker (responding to her husband's outrage that his beloved daughter was cheating on her "Meathead" husband): No matter what she done, it's none of your business!
Archie Bunker: Whaddya talkin' about, it's the world's business!
Edith: No, it ain't the world's business, neither!
Archie: Well, it's certainly God's business!
Edith: Then you let God tend to it.

Maybe here before. Thursday, April 23, 1964, visitors flock to the World's Fair grounds. Later that day, Shea would host it's 4th ballgame ever, as the Mets would lose to the Cubs, 5-1, in a 15-hit barrage against Tracy Stallard, with triples for both Ernie Banks (3-5) and Lou Brock. Stallard would lose 20 that year and be traded to the Cards at season's end.
Years ago I tried to answer a question about Cash and June Carter appearance at Shea Stadium by going to an official Cash Forum (JohnnyCash.com) who had people who tracked all Johnny Cash concerts. And I was told it NEVER HAPPENED!
VICTORY IS MINE, VICTORY IS MINE!

Now that's a real doubleheader. Two games plus Johnny Cash on for one ticket? Far cry from today.

Very small crowd at that Seaver first win. But it is interesting to note how they "papered the house". There are even folks sitting in Section 47 of the Upper Deck. Strangely, there a small isolated group seated in the lower field boxes in the left corner.

I attended another mystery concert at Shea. Extremely popular country singer Freddy Fender entertained a pre-game Shea gathering circa 1979.
Freddy Fender had two crossover hits in the mid 70s, he was mostly popular with the country and western crowd as it was called back then.

As for what I did last week? Not a clue.
