Have you seen it?
According to reports everywhere, the old home plate from Shea Stadium has been embedded in to the pavement, in the parking lot, on the same plot of land where it rested Sept. 28, 2008. Joining the home plate, in which Beltran stood still at, are the other 3 bases and the pitcher's mound.
Some fans are dumbfounded as this has absolutely nothing to do with either the Giants or the Dodgers. Others are screaming that they NEED put up that kind of historical paraphernalia INSIDE CitiField, rather than relegate precious memories to the parking lot. (I say do both).
Then there are those individuals who say, "I don’t understand these people complaining about not having Mets paraphernalia inside the stadium. Do they not know that the Mets play in Citi Field? When I’m at the game, I’m watching the game. I don’t care what decorations they have in concourses or if their food tastes bad (it’s hot dogs and beer, how bad could it be?). Everyone should just stop complaining and enjoy the game."
And I agree. Fenway is practically all Green and they are the RED sox. How come this isn’t an issue for their fan base? Who cares about the colors; we want to see results!
For the heck of it, I'd love to see Shane Victorino attempt to steal second (in the parking lot) only to be mowed down by a Jeep Wrangler coming the other way. Now, that would be something to see...
