    I went deep into the citi field area to get this shot of the final sunset at Shea. Sorry Chris you should have been perched up on that platform today.

    Wow, Shea's almost gone. I'm seriously going to lose it when I see Breeze knocking down the last piece, and I'm sure some here would too.

    I've known the place for 25 years, living through the championship run in '86 when I was six, the horrid Generation-K years, the resugence in '98-'00, the horrible post-Valentine and Howe years in '01-'04, the 2nd resurgence in '05-current, and the gut-wrenching collapses. Boy I'll miss good ol' Shea. When my son turns to about the age I was in '86, I'll tell him about Shea, how it was a place full of memories, magic, and miracle. Goodbye Shea, hopefully Citi Field will have the same magic as Shea had.

    Question Opening Day Question

    Does anyone happen to know the plan for Tuesday's rain date for the home opener on Monday April 13 at CF? I know Monday is a Night game (ugh) but would Tuesday's make-up be a day game?

    I'm flying in from Florida for the game and need to make the appropriate travel plans.
    Thanks.
    Bill

    To me, this shell hasn't been Shea Stadium since the upper deck started coming down. I will remember Shea Stadium and then I will remember the demolition phase of Shea Stadium. Regardless, tomorrow will no doubt be a very emotional day us all. (well, most of us anyway)

    The remaining section during better days:

    Haven't had a chance to stop by and give my final FINAL respects.

    Good bye Shea. You will be missed forever...

    It's really going to be all gone for the rest of time come tomorrow.

    Man oh man...it'll never be the same.

    Too bad they can't keep that one section up - it would cost something like ten parking spaces . .

    You are right Richie, I looked at the Schematics that they have on-site and that building seems to be a ConEd installation

    Anybody knows what time are they taking the ramps tomorrow. I have heard that it might be from 11 to 12. Is that true?

    The ball was really dropped in regards to attempting to save SOME recognizable part of Shea for future generations of Mets fans. To save this one last piece now really wouldn't make any sense, as it has zero historical value, in regards to Shea Stadium memories, etc. Matter of fact, I don't think this 'building' can even be accessed from inside Shea Stadium .... so technically .... I don't think it's even PART of the Stadium (anyone ?). It's more like a garage that is butted up against the perimeter of the Stadium. We've mentioned previously all the other parts of the Stadium they COULD have preserved, but I guess the 'Powers That Be' wanted one big parking lot.

    Congrats "Powers That Be" .... you got you F****NG wish!
    Tomorrow's going to be a bad day. =(

    I didn't even know I had it, I was snapping away not even looking in the view finder. I was looking for security.

    They should leave the section standing like a large tomb stone.

    I don't post much, but it's really hitting home that Shea will be completely gone within the next 12-16 hours. I was at the next to last game at Shea with my older brother in the picnic area. I said my goodbyes then. My brother once told me that, "Nothing has ever suspended reality for him like watching a game at Shea".

    I will miss going to games there with my brother and Dad.

    Even as a man in my mid 30's, I still got excited walking through the tunnels and seeing the grass. That grass was the greenest I have ever seen in my life.

    Goodbye Shea and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the memories you gave me.

    No one would know for sure until it actually happened but my guess would be night game.

    My personal feelings are that time marches on, My 3 Sons are healthy and happy and the historical, arbitrary, architectual configuration of Shea never had a negative impact on my family.

    Thanks for the memories, Shea!

    The word I got from two workers was "before lunch" and "around noon."

    I still will never forget that awful feeling I had the moment Bernie Williams caught the last out in 2000. Its so odd because the VERY FIRST thought that came to my mind is that they must now burn Shea to the ground for this, it was desecrated ground. I'm not lying either, it was the feeling that i had.

    Now almost 9 years later, I'm almost sad I thought that the way I did. I'm actually sad...
    I can't stop going over all those past games and all those years...
