With tears in our eyes, deep sorrow in our souls, and abundant memories in our minds, we say goodbye to Shea – and the ’08 season.
We are all still in awe about yesterday’s game but it is not a feeling – at least personally – like last year’s final outing. The team overcame a lot during the season. From the bullpen falling apart to having everyone – and their mothers – starting at left field. It was a lot to take and the season just ended up being decided in the last week.
It would’ve been a nice ending to the closing of the park but sadly the circumstances sometimes are not the way we expect them or wish they could be.
For Mets fan the off-season – or the beggining and expectactions of the ’09 season- has started. I don’t know about you but when is time to have a dinner outing that includes hot dogs and popcorn, I will be there…
To those who fell in love with the game at Shea, keep your memories. They are valuable and you are part of history.
Now, let’s look forward to Citi Field when the grass is ready and the bats are back in swing.
I think there’s no need for the goverment to bail out the antacid market right now. The weekend (or just about the past week) New York – and all the displaced fans - will show a growth in the revenues for the whole year. Between rotten fish and a rotten bullpen, stomachs are going to be suffering.
…bullpen… *sighs* What to say? Just like the Emmy’s intro last night… I have nothing. Yup, nothing planned, nothing to write.
It was an important game…. like the ones that are coming up. They better get it together.
Congrats to David for being considered for the Roberto Clemente Award for his work within the team and the community.
Part of what we do is let everyone know the work he does with his foundation.
So we are really happy they are getting recognized for all they do.

I am around again to watch the Mets on TV. I was down south in Miami for the whole weekend but didn’t have a chance to catch a game. The only day I was sort of able to go was Saturday and I am really glad I decided against it. My heart can’t take a loss like that one.
Still glad they won the series… and the fish is sinking away.
