The car I’m in that is driving to JFK airport just went by Citi Field, and, as you know, there was no Shea Stadium.
There was nothing but Citi Field.
Very, very weird.
As a kid, I remember being all excited to drive by Shea on the highway, seeing it empty in the distance. It as comforting. Sort of like this special place full of potential great moments, just waiting to pull me from reality.
So, to drive by today, despite seeing the impressive new stadium standing tall, I was a tad sad and lonely to see Shea missing from the horizon.
