    I could be misremembering though.

    Well, once this 'wake' is officially over, maybe all of us who cared about Shea Stadium should start making some noise about making her memorial a fitting one .... & not just some rush job of white paint splattered atop some new blacktop..............

      • This coming directly from Marty Noble on Mets.com....

        "The growing void will be complete well before we return from Florida duty in April. The ramps and all they led to will be replaced by a parking lot. The only lasting physical evidence of Shea will be markers telling future generations where the bases, the plate and the mound were. I would have liked them to mark where Endy and Agee made their catches, where Lenny's home run landed and where the Beatles twisted and shouted."

          I will personally go to those two spots in the parking lot

            Why don't we just rebuild Shea altogether then?

So, when they take that photo of the 55,000 volunteers, ... won't the guys in the back rows of the Loge have to pose with TWO guys on his shoulders ... the guy in the same section directly above him in the Mezzanine, as well as the guy above BOTH of them in the Upper Deck??!! The chances of this happening are less than zero. If we're LUCKY, they'll do something like Atlanta did. What'll probably happen will be they'll paint three bases, a home plate and probably a pitching rubber in/around the spots where they were formally located ..... period. That's what I'm expecting, anyway. The City doesn't have the money to spend on anything elaborate ... & you KNOW the Wilpons/Mets aren't going to pony up a cent to any sort of Shea memorial. Even in death, Shea Stadium will be treated like a step-child. Mark my words.



                Thanks for the new pics, Big Man. She's almost out of her misery
                I KNEW somebody was going to say this, as soon as I posted this. That is small potatoes. The chart wont be exact, but compromises can be made. I agree that it is all probably moot. Looks like I'm going to have to break out the spray paint, and take matters into my own hands!

                    I guess the ghosts of Shea had their way with your camera...

                    • Wow. That last picture of it just about to give way is actually way creepier and unique than a shot of the aftermath.
