On My Ticket Package of 5 Games

The 5th Game will be Washington Nationals Vs NY Mets @ 7:10PM-ET, on Monday, September 24th, 2007:

It was on Tuesday, September 24th, 1957, that the Last Major League Baseball Game, was played at Ebbets Field, @ Bedford Avenue & Sullivan Place, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. It was also the Last MLB Event in Brooklyn;

Only over 6,000 showed up that night;

I shall commemorate that evening, starting the Countdown, to the Closing of Shea Stadium, as '08, will be My '57;

I can't wait to see Citi Field. It looks like it will be something special. I'm sure Mets fans will love it.

Shea Stadium should have been replaced years ago. It was basically a dump. I won't shed any tears for it.

Neither can I wait, Q:

Only the Old Time Mets Fans are calling Citi Field "Stub Hub Park", as Fred & Jeffy are looking to turn Citi Field into a place by Season Tickets-Only;

But, it's looking beautiful, as a lot of fascade is up & stands & concourses are in place;

The New Upper Level, ends at the top of the Current Upper Level Box Seats;

You're right-Shea is a DUMP-Fenway Park looks better than the 44 Season Old Shea ever did;

& I HATE "New York" Fans. Many had no clue that Upper Level Shea used to have an admission price of $1.30, nor ANY idea about Borden's Coupons. Some even said that Real Mets Fans always root for the Yankees vs The Sawx. Apparently, they're in dire NEED of an Upper Level Hanging by the ankles from a Shea Ramp;

Some never even HEARD of Tom Seaver, nor Jerry Koosman;

The People who knew more about the Mets, wore BoSox Gear @ Shea;

& a wild celebration erupted on the 7 Train around 74th Street, when it was learned that Papi hit a 2 Run Homer down near Pesky's Pole. "New York" Fans, questioned why we would celebrate Big Papi's Homer.

In fact, Shea Stadium started to look really-dumpy, around the time of the 1st Seaver Trade, in 1977.
