This is Our Last Goodbye

December 27, 2008


After reading an article regarding the preliminary talks with free agent pitcher Derek Lowe, I took a look at the updated aerial views which allow for you to see the current demolition of Shea Stadium. If you haven’t seen them by now, the area which housed the field level seats has been carted away. Perhaps to a landfill in which a seagull has choked on some popcorn kernels left over from the Shea Goodbye ceremonies or a peanut shell that had still been lodged inside one of the seats. It’s just a matter of time when we will be able to witness the dismantling of the upper deck section of the ballpark and bring the overall project to a close. I would think.

The thought of never seeing another Mets’ game at Shea Stadium only began to dawn on me when those orange seats were exonerated. For some reason, watching the field disappear before my eyes; didn’t bother me. I had never been lucky enough to make my way onto the actual grass.
