Shea Stadium, NYC



   August 30, 2000




The #7 train stops right at Shea Stadium.  The US Open at Forest Hills was underway right across the street.



August 30, 2000.  Astros v. Mets.  I was in NJ for a WMGQ visit.  Drove through the Lincoln Tunnel and parked at the Port Authority garage.  Took #7 train (the John Rocker train) to Shea.  Had an excellent box seat looking down the first base line.  I bought it on the internet.  Astros and Mets.  Mets won 1-0 on a Benny Agbayani passed-ball steal of home.   At the 7th inning stretch they follow “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” with “Cella Luna.”  Shea was a much nicer experience than I expected, given that it usually makes the list of the five worst ballparks.
