Goodbye Shea

Here is Jim Caple’s new story saying goodbye to Shea Stadium.  Although Yankee Stadium has the derth of history there has been a lot of history at Shea over the years–Buckner, The Beatles, and the black cat to name a few.  Yankee Stadium has also gotten most of the fanfare, while poor Shea has been mostly forgotten by the baseball world.  It will be sad to see Shea go the way of the buffalo, and I refuse to call the new stadium by its corporate name, but it will be nice to have a modern facility to watch games at: better food, more bathrooms, and better views.  The whole baseball experience should be, well, better at the new Shea, and I hope the ticket prices aren’t too exorbitant.
