I can't believe that spring training is right around the corner. And that Shea Stadium is on its last legs*...
And tomorrow, join other Mets fans at the Willets Point Social Club (aka Willets Point stop on the 7 train) to say farewell to Shea, at 12 pm. According to Metsblog, the meeting will take place at the old Gate A (which is over by the Grand Central Parkway overpass traffic circle-type thing).
I am getting teary eyed looking at this photo. Thanks to Michael Leggett from Random Fandom for sending it to me (and allowing MSF to use). I would be there tomorrow but I have a previous engagement. Very sad. But on the bright side, going to Flushing on a 30-degree winter day is not my idea of a fun Saturday, no matter how nostalgic things may be.
Please share your stories if you go tomorrow!!
